Injured In A Pedestrian Accident?
Pedestrian accidents are all too common in cities like Cleveland — and often devastating. A human body is no match for a car, truck, motorcycle or bus. If you were struck by a vehicle in a crosswalk or parking lot, you may have suffered serious injuries. Your medical needs and possible legal matters are critical.
At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A. Law Offices, we urge people to take action right away after a crosswalk injury or any type of pedestrian accident. Time is of the essence, for these reasons:
- Eyewitness accounts can be very important. They are easiest to obtain immediately after a pedestrian accident, before witnesses become impossible to contact or forget key facts about what they saw.
- If a pedestrian accident was a hit-and-run, police will want to get involved right away tracking down the vehicle involved. An attorney on your side can keep the case active until the culprit is found.
- In case a hit-and-run pedestrian accident remains unsolved, a skillful personal injury attorney can investigate and find other sources of compensation.
- An attorney advising you after you have suffered serious and catastrophic injuries can help ensure that you receive top-notch medical treatment even before your case is resolved and even if you do not have enough health insurance to cover your therapeutic needs.
A successful personal injury claim after a pedestrian accident can help you recover compensation for lost wages, as well as pain and suffering, besides recuperation of medical costs. If you end up with long-term disabilities, an attorney can coordinate an evaluation by a life care planner to determine what your lifelong financial needs are likely to amount to.
