Pedestrian accidents often leave the most devastating injuries due to the sheer lack of protection between them and the vehicle. Investigators are likely looking into several factors including right-of-way, distracted driving, intoxication, and excessive speed in order to determine who may have acted negligently in this accident. Depending on the results of the investigation, there may likely be a serious personal injury lawsuit to follow.
Many victims will often choose to file a claim for compensation due to the incredibly high costs that follow a sudden injury. While we are proud of our commitment to helping victims recover their losses from a negligent driver, only the victim themselves can decide if they wish to file a claim.
