Without the protection of a vehicle, pedestrians who’ve been hit by a car are likely to have suffered serious harm. Most have likely endured serious injuries such as head trauma, spinal damage, and, in extreme cases, paralysis, or even wrongful death. In these unfortunate situations, compensation for the victim or their family will be based on the negligence of the driver as well as the harm done to the victim. To ensure you’re receiving the compensation you deserve, an attorney who is familiar with Texas’ comparative fault laws and who has experience in establishing damages at trial will be required. Finding these qualities in counsel is crucial to such a case.
How to Ensure Victims Receive Maximum Compensation
The first step in a pedestrian accident case is to establish the extent to which the victim was harmed. In a serious injury case, this may require the use of medical and vocational experts to show the amount of future care that will be provided, as well as how the victim’s earning potential was impacted by the accident.
