Over the past few weeks previous posts here have discussed pedestrian accidents. Sadly, pedestrian accidents continue to increase in frequency, and those pedestrians who are involved in them are often left with serious injuries. In the worst cases, these pedestrian accident victims succumb to their injuries. Those affected by these wrecks, including victims and their families, can end up facing significant damages that are not only financial in nature, but can also involve extensive physical and emotional pain and suffering. Surviving family members may suffer from loss of support and companionship.
These losses are always unexpected and undeserved, but when they are caused by a negligent driver they are unacceptable. In these instances, mere attentiveness, avoidance of drunk driving and adherence to traffic laws may have made all the difference in avoiding injuries and death. Because these accidents are preventable, many victims and their families thirst for justice. While criminal charges may help alleviate this need to a certain extent, those cases aren’t always successful.
A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, on the other hand, may provide a victim and the victim’s family with the accountability and compensation they need to move on with their lives. Achieving this outcome requires an understanding of negligence laws and how to build persuasive arguments. This is where a skilled legal team like the one at Gary Phillips Accident Law may prove beneficial.
