Representing Clients Nationwide
It’s a terrible tragedy when someone using the simplest form of transportation—their own two feet—gets run down by a large metal car, truck, van, or SUV. Pedestrian accidents involve some of the most severe types of injuries and cause a high number of fatalities each year. The majority of pedestrian accidents can be traced back to a single cause: careless drivers who aren’t paying attention.
At Chávez Law Group, it is our privilege to fight for families of injured pedestrians who are suffering because of a driver’s simple lack of focus. Pedestrian accidents are highly preventable, and we hope that by holding negligent drivers accountable for hitting innocent pedestrians, we can send a message to communities throughout the country that carelessness while driving is unacceptable.
Recovering From a Pedestrian Accident
When an automobile driver hits an unsuspecting pedestrian, serious physical injury is a guaranteed result. Broken bones, brain damage, and spinal cord injuries are just a few of the severe medical problems that pedestrian accident victims often deal with after such a crash. The true cost of an accident goes so much deeper than the medical expenses that result. Injured victims are unable to return to work, causing distress and pressure to make ends meet. In addition, friends and family members face the emotional challenges of seeing their loved ones suffer.
Bringing a Wrongful Death Claim
If you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, seeking compensation can help you cover all costs attributed to the accident, including medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and even lost income and loss of future income and benefits. Surviving family members may also be awarded funds for the emotional distress caused by the loss of a life, including loss of companionship.
How to File a Claim
Whether you are filing a personal injury claim or a wrongful death claim against the driver that hit your loved one, our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers can help you get everything done as soon as possible. Our goal is to get your family a settlement that is fair, and to get it handled in a timely manner so you have the funds you need to get your family’s life back on track.
