What damages can I get after my pedestrian accident?
Pedestrian accidents are often catastrophic. The injuries a victim sustains can be severe and may result in permanent medical issues. During the recovery process, the victim may also be unable to go to work. Although the income may stop, the financial obligations remain. The victim can seek compensation from the at-fault driver to recover the damages that arise from the accident.
The damages from a pedestrian accident may be economic or noneconomic. Economic damages include medical expenses, lost wages and loss of use of property. Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
