Pedestrian Accidents

Middlesex County Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Simply given the physics involved, these accidents usually result in extensive physical injuries and sometimes even death to the pedestrian.  Recovery and rehabilitation from such an accident often moves at an agonizingly slow pace.  Despite months of therapy, many victims of pedestrian accidents find that they are never able to return to their pre-accident condition due to the severity of their injuries.   Given this fact, if you are a victim of a pedestrian accident then it is absolutely critical that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately after the accident. The reason being is that the defendant's insurance company will often contact you right away and make a settlement offer that is in its own best interest, not yours!  They do this because they know all too well that if your case is placed in the hands of a qualified personal injury attorney, then they will be forced to pay you significantly more money. 

In Massachusetts, if you are hurt in a pedestrian accident then you can make a claim for bodily injury if at least one of the following things has happened to you:

  1. You incurred at least $2,000.00 in reasonable and necessary accident related medical expenses; 
  2. You sustained a permanent disfigurement (i.e.: scar);
  3. You lost all or part of a body member;
  4. You lost sight or hearing;
  5. You sustained a bone fracture; or
  6. You lost your life.

Once you can legally establish a claim for bodily injury, you may be entitled to compensation for any or all of the following damages:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Lost Wages / Loss of Income
  • Lost Earning Capacity
  • Scarring and Disfigurement
  • Loss of Function and Strength
  • Permanent Injury
  • Medical Bills
  • Hospital Bills
  • Prescription Costs
