Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable when they’re involved in a collision with an automobile. Regardless of where the accident occurs or how fast the vehicle was moving, there is a good chance the pedestrian involved will incur some form of injury including brain and head injuries, spinal cord and back injuries, broken bones, chronic pain and long-term disability. Sometimes, sadly, the outcome can be fatal.
When you or a loved one are involved in a pedestrian accident, you may have numerous options available to you in seeking compensation for your pain, suffering, expenses and lost wages. You may be able to claim accident benefits from your own automobile insurance company or from the insurance company of the driver at fault. If that’s not an option, you may be able to file a claim with the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims (MVAC) Fund or through workplace health insurance. In a situation where the at-fault driver has been grossly negligent, filing a lawsuit is another possible course of action.
All of these options have deadlines, can prove complicated and may feel overwhelming. The personal injury lawyers at The Morris Law Group are here to help.
