Pedestrian Accidents Present Unique Challenges
We Maximize The Amount That Injured Pedestrians Recover
As expected, a pedestrian that is struck by an automobile is more likely to be severely injured then compared to an individual that is struck while riding in a car. Because of the nature of pedestrian accidents, oftentimes these cases may need to be handled differently than regular fender-bender cases.
Specifically, head and brain injuries are more common, and might require a different level of treatment or testing to ensure that you or your loved one may adequately recover damages for the injuries you have suffered. Insurance companies ordinarily handle claims that involve accidents in which all parties are riding in an automobile. Because of that, they many not properly understand the extent of your injuries or damages.
Those damages include money for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, inconvenience, and future medical care. Because of the particular difficulties that may arise in a pedestrian accident, it may be helpful to contact a good lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that you are treated fairly. The lawyers at Rehm, Bennett, Moore, Rehm & Ockander P.C., L.L.O. have experience representing injured pedestrians as well as knowledge and training concerning traumatic brain injury.
