How Will Wolf & Pravato Help Me Win My Accident Case?
Pedestrian accident cases are typically governed under tort laws. In order to recover compensation for a pedestrian accident, you must prove that the person who caused the accident did so by acting negligently, carelessly or recklessly. If you believe your accident was caused by hazardous road conditions, there can be additional requirements as well as limitations on when and how you may file a lawsuit against the authorities responsible for maintaining the roads.
In order to prove negligence, you will need to show that the driver who caused the your accident breached his or her duty of care and did not behave as any reasonable driver would have on the road.
Unfortunately, it is the injured party’s burden to prove that negligence occurred. Wolf & Pravato will look at police reports, expert witness testimony and photographs from the accident scene. We can also obtain footage from traffic cameras or any nearby security cameras. An experienced pedestrian accident attorney can help you to gather the necessary documentation and proof you need to successfully make your case.
Damages in Boynton Beach Pedestrian Cases
Florida has imposed no-fault rules for Florida car accidents, which means that your compensation and recovery may be limited unless your injuries fall within certain exceptions. Injuries that fall within these exceptions include those that are very serious, that lead to death, and that are life-long, debilitating or disabling. Disfigurement can also be considered a serious injury under Florida’s no-fault rules.
When your injuries are not considered serious enough to allow you to recover damages outside of the no-fault system, you are then limited to collecting for your medical bills and lost wages. These damages will come from personal injury protection (PIP) coverage if you or someone in your home has insurance. The responsible driver’s PIP coverage can also pay your damages in a pedestrian accident if you are not covered under any other PIP policies. Our attorneys understand these no-fault rules and can help you to make your claim.
If your car accident injuries are serious enough, you may collect additional damages for your accident, including compensation for pain and suffering. These damages can be obtained through an out-of-court settlement or through a lawsuit.
