Fair Compensation For Pedestrian Accident Victims
California offers such beautiful weather year-round, and so many beautiful places to walk, roller skate, or skateboard, which is probably one of the biggest reasons so many of us are out there. Others combine walking with public transit to commute to work or school. Unfortunately, as inviting as California is to pedestrians, it is also quite dangerous. Pedestrian accidents account for 22% of all traffic fatalities statewide, significantly higher than the national average of just under 14%. Pedestrian accidents commonly result in more severe injuries than vehicle accidents, and can leave the victim’s life changed forever.
A Champion For Your Cause
If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you’ve got a lot on your plate right now. At best, you need to heal up and get back to your life – which now includes having to fight some insurance company for compensation for your expenses. If you’ve sustained more severe injuries, you’re not only facing an extended healing and recovery process, but also the challenge and stress of building a new kind of life around your long-term or permanent damage. Many times, accident victims are too overwhelmed at first to fully realize all the changes and expenses that can arise, today and in the future, from their injuries.
That’s why it’s in your best interest to consult a reputable accident attorney as soon as possible. The Law Offices of Kevin Cortright will listen to all the details pertaining to your accident and injuries, and form a plan of action to make sure you are compensated for your present and future losses and care needs. Our thorough approach in preparing our clients’ cases ensures that we have all the documentation needed to prove each case and to secure compensation that accurately reflects the loss and damage suffered and any medical, adaptive, therapeutic or supportive care that may be needed in the future.
In some cases, you may also be entitled compensation for emotional trauma, physical pain and suffering, and additional services like career rehabilitation, if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous career. In cases where your injuries prevent you from working again, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of your future earnings, which are negotiated based on your current earnings and a valuation of what your likely career path would have been and the salary increases that path would have given you over the course of your career. The Law Offices of Kevin Cortright will work to ensure that your future earnings are valued appropriately, so you get a settlement that will reasonably replace the salary you’ve lost. We’ll help you evaluate what care and help you need at present and what things you may need in the future to make your life whole, and make sure those things are covered by your compensation.
