Pursuing compensation for a pedestrian accident

When a car or truck collides with a pedestrian, the pedestrian doesn't stand much of a chance. Serious injury and even death are often the result. Pedestrian accidents can result in brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and permanent disability. There is often a lengthy recovery process and victims can be left with significant medical expenses, loss of income and pain and suffering. In some cases, a victim may never be able to work again. In a fatal accident, the bereavement of the victim's family may be compounded by a loss of financial support.

Proving the driver's negligence in a pedestrian accident case requires skill and experience. It is critical to locate and interview all witnesses as soon as possible after the accident. An accident scene investigation will include measuring and photographing the intersection and preparing diagrams showing the location of skid marks and vehicle debris. The location and extent of damage to the vehicle is also critical evidence that must be preserved and analyzed.

Proving damages is critical to obtaining just compensation for the victim or the victim's family. At the law firm of Mcgowan & Cecil LLC, we work closely with the victim's physicians and other health care providers to make sure there is full documentation of our client's injuries, as well as the future medical care that will be required. We often work with vocational specialists, life-care planners and other experts to prepare a strong case for the retraining, long-term rehabilitation and personal services that the client will need.
