If you were hit by a car, truck, or other moving motor vehicle and were injured, you have rights to collect compensation for your injuries and damages. Through Georgia personal injury lawsuits, injured victims can recover both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are things like out-of-pocket copays, medical expenses, and lost wages. This means that all your medical bills related to the accident should be covered, even your copays. Additionally, if you have to miss time from work because of your injuries, you should be able to collect for the income you lost.
Noneconomic damages are things like pain, suffering, and mental distress. If the injuries you suffered in the Roswell pedestrian accident resulted in changes to your lifestyle, left you with a disability, or in any way caused you pain and anguish, you have a right to recover noneconomic damages.
If the pedestrian accident resulted in the death of your loved one, then the family of the victim has a right to bring a wrongful death suit and collect for funeral costs, medical expenses, loss of future wages, loss of companionship, loss of parental support, mental anguish, and much more.
