Millions Recovered for Injured Victims & Families

Pedestrians have nothing to protect them against injuries, which is why vehicle-pedestrian crashes often result in life-altering harm or wrongful death.

Often, these tragedies and other accidents involving pedestrians could have been prevented if not for the negligence of others.

Fault & Liability: Accountability For Your Pedestrian Accident

People who traverse city sidewalks, intersections, and streets by foot face many risks, as well as the potential for serious injuries. With no protection, even small “minor” acts of negligence result in life-altering consequences.

In Kentucky and the U.S., victims of preventable injuries have the right to take legal action against those at fault for their accidents. When you pursue a personal injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit, however, you have the burden of proving someone else was actually at fault, and that they should be held financially responsible for the losses you suffered.

While every case is different, it may be that someone should be held accountable for your accident. Examples of at-fault parties in pedestrian cases include:

  • Negligent motor vehicle drivers who failed to uphold their duty to drive in a reasonably safe manner (i.e. failing to yield at crosswalks / intersections, failing to scan their surroundings when backing out of driveways, striking pedestrians in parking lots, etc.;
  • Motorists who cause wrecks by driving under the influence, driving distracted, driving too fast, or violating traffic laws;
  • Truck drivers or commercial trucking companies responsible for tractor-trailer crashes involving pedestrians, including collisions at crosswalks;
  • Manufacturers of defective products, including defective roadways, auto defects, and unsafe consumer products;
  • Property owners who fail to take reasonable measures to address dangerous conditions on their premises, including sidewalk defects, unsafe walkways, and other potential hazards.
  • Contractors, construction companies, and other third parties that negligently caused or contributed to an accident (i.e. falling objects, slip and fall accidents)

At KCB, we help clients prove fault and liability, a task that requires extensive resources, meticulous investigation, and collaboration with experts. By leveraging our resources, victims can position themselves for the positive outcomes they need.

Fighting for the Maximum Compensation Possible

In addition to proving a Defendant’s negligence as the cause of a preventable accident, victims in personal injury and wrongful death cases will need to show the damages they suffered as a result.

By law, personal injury Plaintiffs are entitled to a financial recovery of their economic and non-economic losses, which can include:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses (i.e. future needed surgeries, medications, treatment, rehabilitation, or accommodative devices)
  • Lost income
  • Lost future wages / diminished earning capacity (from being unable to work or perform the same job as before)
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering and mental anguish

Because pedestrians can suffer very serious injuries, it is not uncommon for these cases to involve both past and future damages:

  • Past damages are those which have already been incurred at the time a case is resolved (such as medical bills for treatment you’ve already had, and lost income from the work you’ve missed after an accident).
  • Future damages are projected losses that can reasonably be expected based on your injuries and any lasting consequences (e.g. future medical treatment you may require, the costs of medical devices or medications for a permanent disability, and lost wages caused by your inability to work due to a disability, or your inability to work the same job you once had).

Calculating damages can be a difficult task that requires a careful inventory of a victim’s life and that of their loved ones, and the ability to illustrate how deeply an injury has impacted families – emotionally and financially.

In cases involving serious and permanent injuries, it may also require the use of medical experts, financial experts, and other credible witnesses who can testify about the permanency of injuries, the treatment a disabled victim is likely to require in the future, how much that treatment costs, and the lost income and expenses they will face as years go by.

At KCB, we have access to a nationwide network of investigators and medical experts, and tap into our team’s own experience and resources to help clients pursue the maximum compensation possible.
