Pedestrian Accidents in Manteca
Walking around Manteca can be fun and enjoyable but pedestrian accidents can happen, particularly at crosswalks.
Drivers can be distracted when they answer calls on their mobile phones or when they read or send text messages, some realizing too late that it only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen. The sun’s glare at certain times of the day can increase the risk of an accident due to obstructed visibility while driving. Pedestrians as well may not immediately appear in the driver’s range of visibility, leading to an accident.
Claiming Compensation for Accident Injury
When a car hits a pedestrian, the consequences can be serious injuries or death. The pedestrian can suffer a serious head or brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractures, and other catastrophic injuries that can change their lives forever. If you or a loved one is injured in a pedestrian accident, you can claim compensation from the insurance party of the driver.
Compensation refers to the value assigned to your injuries, and consist of your medical bills, lost earnings or income, pain and suffering, and other consequences arising from your accident. Drivers of motor vehicles ordinarily carry insurance coverage for accidents. But it is best to delegate the process of claiming compensation to an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to get the necessary paperwork done and how to deal with insurance company personnel.
