Liability for pedestrian accidents

Each year, a number of Texans are struck and severely injured in pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians are much more likely to suffer serious injuries or to be killed when they are involved in motor vehicle collisions. A broad array of injuries may occur, ranging from mild to catastrophic.

If you have been injured in an accident in which a driver hit you, you might be considering filing a personal injury lawsuit against the motorist. If you do so, you will need to be prepared to prove your case in a way that convinces the insurance company to make a fair settlement offer to compensate you for your losses.

You may need to hire several different types of experts in order to build a stronger claim. An accident reconstructionist may be able to show exactly what happened in order to help you prove the driver's liability for causing the accident. A medical expert may be able to explain the seriousness and extent of your injuries and to provide you with an estimate of how much both your current and future medical costs might be. Getting this type of help may allow you to recover a greater amount of monetary damages so that you might receive fair compensation for your claim.

At our law firm, we understand the complexities involved with proving liability in pedestrian accident cases. We help our clients to build strong cases and then work to convince the insurance companies that it would be in their best interests to settle the claims instead of litigating the matters. If an insurance company refuses to settle, we fight on behalf of our clients before a judge and a jury. If you or your loved one has received serious pedestrian accident injuries, you might want to review our pedestrian accident page to learn more about the services that we might be able to provide.
