When a pedestrian, bicyclist or operator of a motorcycle or car is struck by another vehicle, they may experience severe or even fatal injury. The injured party will face significant medical expenses, lose value in damaged property, and possibly miss out on work or lose a job altogether. The loss of income, exacerbated by unforeseen medical expenses, can threaten to destabilize families.
If you have experienced such an injury, pain, suffering, disability, permanent disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, or mental distress, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you have suffered. Importantly, you may be able to hold those responsible for your injuries accountable in a civil action.
