Pedestrian injuries are often severe. The human body has no protection from the force of a heavy vehicle slamming into it, which means even a lower-speed incident can lead to major injuries. High-speed pedestrian collisions often result in catastrophic injuries.
At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, our team has helped pedestrian accident victims who have sustained a wide range of injuries, including the following:
In addition to these visible traumatic injuries, we also recognize that pedestrian accident victims may experience a wide range of emotional and psychological trauma caused by their injuries and the incident. Our goal is to recognize these injuries and then quantify them into compensation for our clients.
There is no set amount of compensation available to Santa Ana pedestrian accident victims, but there are various factors that will be taken into account when calculating the correct amount. These factors revolve around the severity of the injuries, the length of the recovery time, whether or not there was any shared fault, and more.
The goal of the Santa Ana personal injury lawyers at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo is to recover maximum economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are sometimes referred to as special damages, and these are the types of losses that most people think about after a pedestrian accident occurs. This includes calculable expenses such as medical bills, lost income, property damage expenses, payment for household services, and more.
Non-economic damages are also referred to as general damages, but these are not quite as calculable as the losses mentioned above. These types of damages revolve around unseen injuries and losses, such as physical and emotional pain and suffering as well as a loss in quality of life resulting from the incident and recovery.
It is crucial for pedestrian accident victims in Santa Ana to understand they have limited timeframes involved in filing these claims. Overall, California has a personal injury statute of limitations of two year. This means that a pedestrian accident victim must file their lawsuit against the alleged negligent party within this two-year time frame, or they will not be able to recover compensation for their losses.
Additionally, insurance carriers will have their own strict reporting deadlines that victims need to be cognizant of. We encourage you to speak with a skilled lawyer who can get your claim filed quickly and properly.
It may seem impossible to afford a pedestrian accident lawyer, but that is not the case. Our Attorneys handle these claims on a contingency fee basis, which we think is the fairest way to help individuals hold at-fault parties accountable for their actions.
Under a contingency fee agreement, our team handles any costs associated with the case. Victims pay no upfront or out-of-pocket costs. We will only collect legal fees if we successfully recover the compensation you need. If we do not win, you do not pay. The final legal fees will equal an agreed-upon percentage of the total settlement or jury verdict. Please speak to your attorney about how much your case will be so you have an understanding of what happens and what you are responsible for.
