After a pedestrian accident, there are several options for seeking financial compensation for medical costs and other damages. These include filing a claim with the responsible driver’s insurance provider or filing a personal injury lawsuit.
When filing an insurance claim, victims of pedestrian accidents can seek coverage from the at-fault driver’s liability insurance policy. While it is typically difficult to win full compensation through an insurance claim, if the victim was partially at fault for the accident then they may be able to get some coverage. It is important to speak to an experienced attorney. They can help navigate the claims process and work towards achieving maximum compensation.
Alternatively, victims of pedestrian accidents could also pursue civil litigation against the negligent party in order to seek damages. This involves filing a personal injury lawsuit in court and must be done within the limitations period of your state. Personal injury lawsuits are typically more successful than insurance claims as they allow victims to pursue punitive damages, which can be awarded if the defendant is found to have been especially negligent or reckless in causing the accident. A skilled attorney can help negotiate settlements with the at-fault driver’s insurer and provide legal representation throughout the litigation process.
No matter which option you choose, it is important to speak with an experienced lawyer who will guide you through the legal processes and ensure that you get the maximum financial compensation possible for your injuries.
