What Types of Damages Can You Recover in a North Hempstead Pedestrian Collision Case?

You can recover a wide range of compensatory damages when you file your personal injury claim. These may include economic and non-economic damages such as:

  • Medical expenses: You could recover the cost of all your medical bills like ambulance transportation, the costs of staying in the hospital, doctor’s appointments, prescription medications, and assistive medical devices.
  • Lost income: Many accident victims need to take time away from work to recover from their injuries. If your pedestrian injuries force you to take time off and miss out on your usual paychecks, our team can pursue compensation for your lost income.
  • Reduced earning capacity: If your injuries prevent you from earning as much money as you did before the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your reduced earning capacity.
  • Property damage: Pedestrian accident victims often notice that their personal items are lost or damaged in the accident. You can seek compensation to pay for your jewelry, cell phone, or any other personal property that was damaged in the accident.
  • Pain and suffering: Recovering from your injuries and undergoing medical procedures is painful. If you endured physical pain and suffering because of the accident, our team can help you seek fair compensation.
  • Mental anguish: Some pedestrian accident victims suffer from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after an accident. If this is the case for you, we can pursue compensation for your emotional distress.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: Your injuries might prevent you from participating in activities that bring you joy. If your ability to enjoy your life the way you once did has been interrupted, our team will demand compensation for your lost life enjoyment.

You Need to File Your Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit on Time in North Hempstead, NY

Although it might be difficult to think about taking legal action after you suffer a severe injury, you need to get started on your case right away. The statute of limitations, or CVP § 214, generally only gives you three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. If your loved one passed away in a pedestrian accident, you have even less time. EPT § 5-4.1 states you typically have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Bringing your case to Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC offers many benefits. Not only will this give us time to comply with the statute of limitations, but it also ensures we have ample time to collect evidence and speak to accident witnesses.

How We Prove Negligence for Victims of Pedestrian Accidents

After suffering injuries in a pedestrian accident, you deserve compensation. However, we can’t secure the compensation you’re entitled to until we prove another party’s negligence. We must satisfy the following four elements:

  • Duty of care: The at-fault party had a duty to keep you and other pedestrians out of harm’s way. This means following all safe driving laws and remaining alert behind the wheel.
  • Breach of duty: The at-fault party failed to uphold their duty of care. Instead, they demonstrated negligence by driving drunk, driving distracted, or otherwise acting negligently while operating a vehicle.
  • Causation: The at-fault party’s negligence was the cause of your accident.
  • Damages: You suffered damages such as medical treatment expenses and physical pain.

Once we prove that a negligent driver (or another liable party) injured you, we can seek the compensation you deserve.
