Legal help for victims of pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents can cause extensive damage to victims and their families. In a California community north of the Indio area, a 70-year old man was struck and killed by a box truck. The pedestrian victim was walking in the roadway as the box truck was being backed up by its 53-year old driver who subsequently hit the pedestrian victim and killed him. The pedestrian victim was pronounced dead at the scene after suffering fatal injuries in the fatal pedestrian accident.

Pedestrian accidents can be devastating for victims and their families. As a result, it is necessary for pedestrian accident victims, and family members of victims of fatal pedestrian accidents, to be familiar with the legal remedies available to help them when they have been harmed by a negligent driver in a pedestrian accident or fatal pedestrian accident. Legal remedies can help injured victims and their families recover damages for their physical, financial and emotional damages they suffer.

A personal injury claim for damages can help injured victims recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. Wrongful death damages that may be available to surviving families of victims can include medical and funeral expenses; loss of support and services; lost prospect of inheritance; and loss of consortium.

The legal options available to victims can help them through the challenges faced following an unexpected pedestrian accident. It is essential for victims and their families to be aware of the legal resources available to them and their rights when they have been harmed by a negligent or careless driver.
