We recently discussed some of the unique hazards that pedestrians face during the winter months. One of these is the risk of slipping and falling on the ice that accumulates on the sidewalks. When this occurs, the pedestrian can slide into the way of an oncoming vehicle. This could lead to a very serious accident. It is also a reason why drivers must be especially careful to watch for pedestrians during the winter months.
We know that pedestrians don’t leave home hoping that they are going be struck by a vehicle. When this does happen, the pedestrian’s life can be thrown into complete upheaval. If you are the pedestrian who is struck, you might have medical bills and other expenses piling up. This can be even more devastating if you are unable to work because of the injuries.
We can help you learn how seeking compensation might help you to recoup the money that you have to spend taking care of the costs associated with the accident. This compensation could help you to pay future expenses that are related to the injuries you suffered.
Determining the amount of monetary compensation that you should seek can be a complex matter. Drawing on the occurrences in previous cases might help you to determine how much compensation you should seek for past and future expenses.
As you move through the process of seeking compensation, you might have some questions about your options or what is going on. We will be by your side to help you learn about your case and the options you have.
