What Damages Are Available in Pedestrian Accidents Claims?
Each state in the country has their own specific laws that grant legal protections and rights to the victims of a personal injury caused by the negligent actions of another. In most cases in Arizona, victims of a pedestrian accident can be awarded compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages fall into two separate categories – economic and non-economic damages:
- Economic Damages: These damages would be the hard costs of the pedestrian accident. (medical and hospital bills, lost wages and emergency transportation)
- Non-Economic Damages: These damages would cover the intangible costs of your pedestrian accident. They would include the impact of the accident on your quality of life, pain and suffering and loss of consortium.
The categories that fall under each of these damage types are:
- Medical & Hospital Bills
- Lost Income (Past, Present & Future)
- Pain & Suffering
- Loss of Consortium (Impairment of Affection & Companionship of a Spouse)
- Mental Anguish & Emotional Distress
- Costs of Funeral (Wrongful Death Cases)
- Punitive Damages (Injury Claims Involving Particularly Egregious Conduct)
Why Should I Hire A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?
The importance of hiring an attorney to manage your pedestrian accident claim is very high. An experienced attorney can help you understand the state and local laws, negotiate down your or a loved one’s medical bills and fight to get you the proper compensation to cover any damages you are experiencing from the accident.
Hiring a pedestrian accident lawyer can give you a better chance of securing fair compensation from an insurance company. Arizona is a fault-based car insurance state, this means that you need to prove the other party’s fault to recover compensation from their insurance company. You may need to go against an insurance company that denies liability. If you hire an attorney, they will give you an advantage during insurance settlement negotiations.
