Negligence Must Be Proved

To get high payouts our lawyers will have to prove that the driver or other party was negligent. This can be done in a variety of ways as follows:

  • Illegally parked cars: in some instances an illegally parked car can make it difficult for a driver to see pedestrians. In this case, the owner of the illegally parked car would be negligent.
  • Driver was distracted: drivers should not be distracted while driving. Negligence can be proved by distractions from the driver such as texting or any other use of electronics.
  • Right turns: often times drivers make right runs at crosswalks without paying attention or completely checking for pedestrians.
  • Red lights:  a driver running a red light is one of the more common reasons why a pedestrian might be hit. In such cases the use of CCTV can prove the negligence of a driver.
  • Intoxicated driving: another common way for proving negligence is if the driver was intoxicated.

Severity of the Injury

A factor that plays a part in calculating the compensation payout is the severity of the injuries. In the majority of cases when a pedestrian gets hit by a car the injuries are of a series nature. Therefore, the compensation amount tends to reflect that. Below are some of the more common injury types that pedestrian cases involve:

  • Amputations
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones

Medical expenses can be claimed for these injuries, as well as any psychological damage that they have caused. Furthermore, if you had to take time away from work, lost income may also be claimed. You can trust our lawyers to discover all possible angles in order to build your case the best possible defense.
