Watertown Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Crossing the street or walking along the sidewalk should not be a frightening experience. Just the same, traveling through the mall parking lot after a day of shopping should not cause you to fear for your life. Unfortunately, careless motorists sometimes strike pedestrians, resulting in devastating harm. In some cases, due to the lack of physical protection to shield those on foot from the impact of a vehicle, these accidents lead to fatal injuries.

When a motor vehicle hits you or your family member while walking, a Watertown pedestrian accident lawyer could help you seek damages in a personal injury claim. Get in touch with a skilled injury attorney to learn more.

Valuable Evidence in a Pedestrian Crash Claim

After a pedestrian crash, survivors face many challenges and responsibilities. That said, reaching out for legal assistance is not usually foremost in many people’s minds. However, doing so could make a difference in the resolution of a case.

To accomplish this, a hardworking attorney in Watertown could conduct a detailed investigation of the pedestrian collision to learn more, paying particular attention to the following:

  • Reviewing the details of the police accident report
  • Examining the crash scene photographs
  • Searching for surveillance video footage from surrounding cameras
  • Interviewing witnesses to the accident
  • Visiting the crash scene
  • Inspecting the negligent motorist’s vehicle for malfunctioning parts
  • Subpoenaing the motorist’s cellphone records and chemical test results to determine if they were driving under the influence or while distracted

A legal representative might also investigate the crash details to determine what the driver did in the hours and minutes before the accident, including reviewing their credit card receipts and interviewing people who might know more about the motorist’s behavior, like their drinking companions at a bar. Finally, a lawyer could gather, secure, and review all relevant evidence pinpointing the cause and source of liability for a pedestrian wreck.

Possible Damages Available for Recovery After a Watertown Pedestrian Crash

A diligent attorney could also gather information to help calculate the actual value of the injured pedestrian’s loss by reviewing medical records and speaking with medical experts to understand the magnitude of the current and future anticipated medical costs. Legal counsel could also secure the injured person’s employment records and work with industry experts to demonstrate the value of their lost wages and future lost earnings.

In addition, the legal team member could help the family calculate the value of their intangible losses, such as their pain, suffering, and mental anguish. When an accident results in a death, a compassionate Watertown lawyer could help the deceased’s surviving family members fight for justice in a wrongful death claim.
