West Palm Beach Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Drivers who don’t pay attention, who drive carelessly or who fail to obey the rules of the road can be a danger to other motorists, to bicyclists, to motorcycle riders and to pedestrians. Unfortunately, pedestrians are at especially great risk of being seriously hurt in a collision because they have no protection to shield them from the impact of a moving vehicle. If you or a loved one was hit by a car and injury or death resulted from the crash, you have certain legal rights. A West Palm Beach pedestrian accident lawyer at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can help you protect your rights and pursue a claim for compensation to cover accident losses.

How We Can Help

A pedestrian accident victim or loved ones who lose a family member in a crash can pursue a claim from the driver responsible for the accident. To make a successful pedestrian accident claim, the injured victim will need to show:

  • That the driver was unreasonably negligent or careless. You can show this by demonstrating that a hypothetical average driver would have been more careful or by proving that the motorist broke a safety rule or regulation.
  • That the carelessness or negligence was the cause
  • That some type of harm such as injury or death resulted from the driver’s behavior
  • That the driver or insurance company has the means to compensate

Evidence from the scene of the accident, a police report, witness statements and expert testimony from an accident reconstruction specialist can all be used to help you prove these elements of your case. A West Palm Beach pedestrian accident lawyer will work with you to maximize your compensation.

What to Expect

Most pedestrian accident cases settle outside of court when the driver’s insurance company agrees to pay a designated amount of money in exchange for signing a waiver of liability. However, this doesn’t always happen and a pedestrian accident case can go to court where a judge or jury will decide on compensation. Whether you get monetary damages from a settlement or because they are awarded by a jury, you should be compensated for:

  • Medical bills and costs
  • Lost income
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering

If you are pursuing your case on behalf of a loved one killed in a pedestrian crash, then you should receive wrongful death compensation. This can include payment of medical bills from prior to the death, payment of funeral bills and expenses, and compensation for loss of companionship.
