If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a car, which resulted in injuries, you may have rights to certain types of compensation. In cases where another person caused the accident, the insurance company of the at-fault driver must pay out for the damages you suffered. This includes your medical bills and other costs that may have come about as a result of the accident.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates 50,000 pedestrians were killed in car accidents over a nine-year period. While the majority of pedestrian related accidents occur on crosswalks or intersections there is still a serious risk walking through parking lots and driveways. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of a car related accident contact Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC without delay after the accident.
