Pedestrians who have 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. Compensation will be based on the negligence of the driver as well as the harm done to the victim. This means that one requires an attorney who is familiar with Texas’ comparative fault laws and who has experience in establishing damages at trial. Finding these qualities in counsel is crucial to such a case.
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 determined, then a demand for payment is sent to the insurance company. If 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.
