Pedestrians involved in knock down accidents are often seriously or fatally injured due to the sheer speed and weight of the vehicle. Pedestrian accidents can result in broken bones, head injuries, various back and neck injuries, and even death.
The survivors of pedestrian knock down accidents can face multiple surgeries, as well as months – even years – of expensive rehab. They may need to use costly prescription drugs, specialized equipment and nursing care for the rest of their lives. The injured victims of pedestrian knock down accidents might never be able to work again, and in the case where a fatality occurs, the family of a victim is often left without an important means of financial support.
If you have been involved in a pedestrian knock down accident and suffered an injury, you may be entitled to cover damages for the following items:
- Medical bills
- Prescription drugs
- Lost wages and future income
- The loss of enjoyment of the quality of your life
- Pain and suffering
