When we think of the words 'car accident' we think two or more vehicles involved in a collision. A large majority of accidents involve vehicles, but on occasion, a car accident can involve a vehicle and a pedestrian. An incident involving a person can have devastating consequences as seen recently in the Orlando daycare center crash that killed a 4 year old girl and severely injured 14 others.
An accident where pedestrians are struck by a car can lead to serious injuries and even death. The victim and the family are left with their lives turned upside down as they try to pick up the pieces. Many families go through anger, frustration, and mourning after these events, all of which are perfectly natural reactions to a tragedy.
If you or a loved one has been involved in accident, then you should consider contacting a Martin County personal injury attorney. An injury lawyer cannot replace what you have lost or fix your injuries, but they can ensure that you receive fair compensation to pay for any and all medical bills and other expenses related to the accident. The compensation can also include future costs too if ongoing or permanent care is needed.
A lawyer will fight to make sure that you and your family are taken care of, they have knowledge and power of the law behind them and will fight for your legal rights. The documents and representatives from the insurance company may give you forms that you do not understand, making it a burden to go over it. An attorney will handle the claim with the insurance company, allowing you and your family the time to relax and heal.
