Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Serving the Greater Austin Area

Pedestrians are usually the most defenseless, and therefore experience the most significant level of injury, of auto accident victims. Every day, people are injured on busy streets, in residential areas, in crosswalks, or at intersections. The injury inflicted on these victims often impacts their daily lives from that point forward. In addition to physical injury, pedestrians who are harmed by cars and other vehicles typically incur substantial medical bills, may require future care, suffer lost wages as well as reduced earning capacity, and may see their ability to enjoy life greatly reduced. 

Injured pedestrians should immediately seek legal representation to assist with their situation. Our Austin injury lawyer has been practicing for over twenty years and aggressively defends the rights of injured pedestrians. Call today to speak with our attorney.

Austin Injury Lawyers Who Will Aggressively Fight for Pedestrians Who’ve Been Hit by a Car

“Our goal is to help you through the process as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can focus on getting life back on track.”

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. 

Once damages can be reasonably calculated, then a demand for payment is sent to the insurance company. If a settlement cannot be reached, then a negligence lawsuit will be filed in the court. The case will be presided over by a judge and either a judge or a jury will make the final decision as to whether the victim will be compensated and the amount of such compensation.
