Woodstock Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Distracted or otherwise negligent drivers hit pedestrians far too regularly in the Woodstock area and across the Atlanta metro region. While drivers usually walk away relatively unscathed from such a collision, the outcome for a pedestrian can be vastly different. 

Often, pedestrians suffer catastrophic injuries in vehicle accidents.

Because collisions between motor vehicles and pedestrians often leave the pedestrian with serious injuries, you must present the strongest possible case for compensation if this type of accident happened to you.

Hiring a Woodstock pedestrian accident lawyer can significantly affect the injury claim process and outcome.

Who is Liable for Your Woodstock Pedestrian Accident?

The primary cause of pedestrian accidents is driver negligence.

Drivers regularly hit pedestrians due to:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failure to yield to a crosswalk
  • Failure to pay attention to and follow walk signals
  • Backing up in parking lots or out of driveways without looking
  • Speeding, especially in school or road work zones

Most pedestrian accidents are preventable, but drivers continually fail to use proper care and caution to keep pedestrians safe.

When a driver hits you, the law holds them responsible for all the injuries you suffer and financial losses you incur. Georgia law requires drivers to carry liability insurance, which should cover losses in the event of a pedestrian accident. However, obtaining compensation can be much more challenging than you expect.

Further, you might pursue additional liable parties for your injuries:

  • Employers, if the driver was on the job when they hit you
  • Uber or Lyft, if the driver had an active rideshare ride at the time of the accident
  • A city or state agency, if traffic lights were malfunctioning or poorly timed
  • Another driver, if multiple drivers shared responsibility for the collision

Our Woodstock pedestrian accident lawyers will fully investigate what happened and ensure we identify all liable parties. This increases the potential sources of compensation, which can improve your chances of a full financial recovery.

Time is short following a crash, so consult our team at Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group today so we can begin investigating liability for your accident.

Pedestrians Often Require Large Financial Recoveries

Woodstock Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Pedestrians typically have no protection against an oncoming vehicle. They might fall into the path of other vehicles, increasing the damage they suffer. This is why the physical and psychological toll of your accident may be considerable. You deserve justice, and our lawyers can help.

Some severe injuries pedestrians commonly suffer in collisions include:

  • Spinal cord injury and paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Crush injuries
  • Internal injuries and organ damage
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Joint injuries
  • Road rash and severe lacerations

Most pedestrians require immediate medical treatment. Always put your health first and seek the medical care you need for a full diagnosis. This helps your physical condition and documents your injuries, which is evidence for your injury claim.

Then, contact the Woodstock office of Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group for legal assistance.

Recoverable Damages in Your Pedestrian Accident Case

Many injuries resulting from a pedestrian accident may have long-lasting effects on the victim, so calculating compensation can be challenging. Recoverable damages in your case may be significant and wide-ranging, possibly including the following.

Medical Bills

You should seek immediate medical treatment after a pedestrian accident.

Our lawyers can seek compensation for all of your accident-related medical bills, which may result from:

  • An ambulance ride
  • Emergency medical services
  • Hospital services
  • Medical imaging (including but not limited to X-rays and CT scans)
  • Surgery costs
  • Medications 
  • Rehabilitation services

The serious nature of pedestrian accident injuries may require treatment by medical specialists. This can lead to costly medical bills, and we will work to ensure you receive total reimbursement for your bills.

Pain and Suffering 

Our Woodstock pedestrian accident attorneys will evaluate the non-economic harm that has resulted from your accident and injuries.

When necessary, we may hire a medical expert and mental health expert to document:

  • Injury-related pain (including both acute and chronic conditions)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety (which may include a fear of motor vehicles)
  • Scarring and other types of disfigurement
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and other sensations
  • Lost quality of life

Accident victims can also suffer unwanted changes in their physical abilities, cognitive abilities, and personality. Your lawyer will comprehensively detail every type of pain and suffering stemming from your pedestrian accident.

Lost Income 

After serious injuries, you may need to reduce your hours, take a break from work, or permanently refrain from working.

Any interruption in your professional life can cause:

  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Lost performance bonuses
  • Lost promotion opportunities
  • Psychological distress (not earning an income can be immensely distressing)
  • Lost benefits 

We will consult your employer and professional experts as necessary. These parties may help substantiate your professional damages and illustrate the total cost of your accident-related losses.

Property Cost

If your clothing, phone, or other property became damaged when a vehicle struck you, we will determine the cost of replacing the damaged property.

A Loved One’s Wrongful Death

Pedestrian accidents are, tragically, potentially fatal events. Serious brain injuries, internal bleeding, and certain other injuries can claim the victim’s life. In such cases, our attorneys can represent surviving loved ones in wrongful death claims.

We might seek compensation for:

  • Loss of consortium (which may include multiple non-economic benefits the decedent provided their loved ones)
  • Loss of the decedent’s income
  • Loss of benefits provided through the decedent’s employer
  • Loss of the decedent’s household contributions
  • Pain and suffering (including that affecting the decedent and survivors)
  • Funeral costs

Each case is unique, and each array of damages is also unique. We will investigate the specific details of your damages to ensure you seek the financial recovery you deserve.

Whether you have a broken bone, a paralyzing spinal injury, or lost a close family member in a pedestrian accident, Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group is ready to support you and handle the legal process.

Vital Services Our Woodstock Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Can Provide

Some of the most important services our lawyers can provide include the following.

Protecting the Client

We will protect you from:

  • Unfair denial of an insurance claim
  • Allegations that you caused the pedestrian accident
  • Undervaluation of accident-related damages
  • Pressure to accept a lowball settlement
  • Attempts to have you admit fault for the accident
  • Any other tactics that undermine the success of your claim 

Your attorney will also advise you throughout our time representing you. If you have questions or face uncertainty, we will provide the answers you need.

Evidence Collection

Our pedestrian accident lawyers will quickly pursue all evidence that may benefit your case, including:

  • An expert’s reconstruction of the pedestrian accident
  • Video of the collision
  • An expert’s testimony about why the accident happened
  • The police report detailing the collision
  • Any other evidence that supports your case

Collecting evidence is a time-sensitive obligation. It is up to you to hire us as soon as possible so we can secure all useful evidence.

Documenting Damages

Woodstock Pedestrian Accident

We will document your damages to prove how the collision has affected you.

Some common forms of documentation in pedestrian accident cases are:

  • Mental health experts’ testimony about the accident victim’s pain and suffering
  • Medical experts’ testimony about the victim’s injuries and treatment needs
  • Medical bills
  • Images of injuries (which may include photographs, X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans)
  • Invoices for the replacement of damaged property
  • Employment records proving the cost of the victim’s lost income

Because each pedestrian accident victim experiences different damages, your attorney’s record of damages will be specific to you.

Settlement Calculations and Negotiations

Our legal team will calculate the exact financial cost of damages from your pedestrian accident. Once we have secured documentation of all your damages, we will engage in settlement negotiations with the liable parties.

Filing a Lawsuit, if Necessary

If liable parties and insurers aren’t receptive to settlement demands, filing a lawsuit may be appropriate.

Our attorneys will:

  • Evaluate all settlement offers with you
  • Explain whether, in their opinion, the best settlement offer is fair or not
  • Explain the potential benefits of pursuing a lawsuit
  • Draft and file a lawsuit, if you choose to do so

Our Woodstock pedestrian accident lawyers can continue negotiating a settlement once we file a lawsuit. Liable parties may realize we are serious about going to trial and may meet our settlement demands after receiving notice of the lawsuit.

Going to Trial, if Necessary

If we never receive a fair settlement offer from liable parties, your case may go to trial.

Our team will handle every step in the trial process, including:

  • Completing discovery
  • Completing any necessary deposition
  • Questioning witnesses
  • Presenting evidence
  • Making verbal arguments in your case’s favor
  • Lodging objections as necessary
  • Requesting that the jury award you a fair sum of money

Leave every detail of your case to your lawyer. Focus on recovery while our legal team fights for justice.
