How Much Can I Recover With a Claim?
A pedestrian accident claim alleges that a driver or another party was at fault for the collision and should therefore be financially responsible, or liable, for related losses. A claim seeks financial compensation for the injuries and losses a victim suffered and will continue to suffer due to the accident.
A successful pedestrian accident case makes a victim whole again by restoring the victim to the financial state he or she would have been in had the accident not occurred. If you or your attorney succeeds in obtaining a settlement or judgment award for your pedestrian accident case in Peoria, you could recover financial compensation for losses such as:
- Hospital bills
- Necessary medical treatments
- Losses of income (present and future)
- Pain and suffering
- Disability or disfigurement
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death damages
The value of your case is something a Peoria personal injury attorney can estimate for you. Case values vary significantly, as they are calculated based on unique factors, such as injury severity, prognosis, recovery timeline, level of disability, the age of the plaintiff and more.
Why Should I Hire a Lawyer?
Most pedestrian accident lawsuits are serious injury claims. When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the pedestrian can suffer life-altering injuries, such as bone fractures, organ damage, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This makes it important for the victim to hire an attorney for representation, as an insurance company may try to devalue the claim to save money by avoiding a large payout.
An attorney can help you go up against an insurance company in pursuit of fair and full financial compensation for your losses after a pedestrian collision. An attorney will have experience with similar claims, legal knowledge and resources to make your claim more efficient and effective. An attorney can save you time by handling complicated legal processes for you and suggesting alternative ways to resolve your case, such as mediation. Finally, hiring an attorney can provide greater peace of mind while you heal from an injury.
Deadline to File a Claim
Act quickly if you believe you have grounds to file a pedestrian accident claim in Peoria. Almost all personal injury claims in Arizona must be filed within two years of the accident. Two years is the statute of limitations, or legal deadline to file, in most cases. If you wait too long to talk to an attorney or pursue financial compensation, the courts will almost certainly refuse to hear your case – barring you from financial recovery.
