How to Prove Your Pedestrian Accident Claim

As your attorneys, our role is to establish that the other party is responsible for your injuries and subsequent damages. We conduct a comprehensive investigation to gather evidence of fault and liability.

Eyewitnesses

If possible, try to gather the names and contact information of any witnesses on the scene. We can reach out to witnesses who can describe the accident and verify your claim. 

Accident or Police Report

One of the best forms of evidence is an official accident report, often filled out by a state trooper or local law enforcement. The police report includes information, including how the accident occurred and the extent of the damage. We can include the report in the pedestrian accident claim.

Photos or Video Footage

Many of California’s roads and highways contain surveillance cameras, which are useful in pedestrian accidents. We can obtain a copy of any available video footage. If you or someone in your party took photos of the accident or your injuries, we can also use them in your case.

Expert Testimony

We may need to hire or contact experts who can shed light on the accident and substantiate your personal injury claim. Expert witnesses may include accident reconstruction experts, private investigators, or medical professionals.

Damages in a Pedestrian Accident Case?

How much your case is worth depends on how the accident occurred, which parties are involved, and how the accident affected your life overall. When estimating your case value, we look at economic damages, general damages, and other possible damages to get you the maximum compensation possible. 

Medical Expenses

You may collect a sizable debt as a result of your accident. If so, you can claim medical services such as emergency medical care, surgical procedures, hospital stay, rehabilitation, medical devices, doctor visits, or pain medication. Make sure you keep your medical reports, invoices, and receipts. We will use them to calculate your losses.

Lost Pay

Your injuries may have caused you to lose work with no pay for several weeks. You may have also lost benefits, bonuses, or tips. In a disability case, we can estimate how much pay you will lose due to diminished work capacity. We can contact your employer who can provide us with how much pay you have lost.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering refers to physical pain and emotional distress you experienced due to the accident. We look at how the accident affected your life or your family outside of your economic losses and add these damages to your personal injury claim.

Wrongful Death

In a wrongful death case, your family may be entitled to recover all losses related to the death of a loved one. Damages may include funeral and burial expenses, lost household income, pain and suffering, or pre-death medical bills. We understand that nothing can replace the loss of a loved one. However, your family should not have to pay for someone else’s mistake. Let us help you recover your losses.

We are proud that our legal work deters careless and negligent acts from repeating which protects the community from future harm.
