While San Jose is generally considered a pedestrian-friendly city, pedestrian accidents still happen far too often. These accidents take place in crosswalks, on sidewalks, parking lots, and other locations.
What is a pedestrian accident case worth?
The value of a pedestrian accident claim will reflect the injuries sustained and the long-term impact on the life of the injured person. The types of damages sought in a claim or lawsuit include:
- Economic damages: These damages are paid to cover the financial losses associated with medical and hospital care, nursing care, rehabilitation, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and other economic losses.
- Non-economic damages: This portion of a settlement may be the largest. The impact on the life and future of the individual can last a lifetime. These damages include pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, loss of consortium, and other very personal and significant changes in life experience.
