If a driver was negligent, careless, or reckless and caused your Georgia pedestrian injury, you should be compensated for your medical bills, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, lost income, and other damages related to your injury.
You have rights to pursue a personal injury claim against the driver responsible for causing your lower-extremity injuries, and a skilled Peachtree City pedestrian injury lawyer can help you seek just financial compensation and justice.
In order to determine what your case is worth exactly, it will depend on the seriousness of your injuries and if you can return to work or hold the same type of job as before your pedestrian accident. For this reason, case value cannot be determined until a full prognosis is known.
Before an attorney or insurance company can determine what your injury case is worth, they will need to know if the injury is disabling, how much your medical expenses have been and will be for future ongoing care, how much income you lost and your diminished earning capacity, and if your injury requires home modifications or home care.
Based on the type of injury you have suffered, and if it will affect your future, a dollar amount will be assigned to your case. Just because an insurance company assigns a case value to your claim doesn’t mean that you have to accept it. Your case can be worth a lot more than what the insurer has indicated.
