In an accident, those who are directly involved are rarely the only people who suffer from the experience. Sometimes a pedestrian or other bystander who witnessed an accident or attack – or who possibly sustained injuries from an accident they were not directly involved with are affected. Bystanders to an event can be deeply affected by what they witnessed and can even suffer injuries from the accident.. If you were a bystander or indirectly involved in an accident and suffered physical or psychological injuries, a pedestrian accident lawyer from Tolbert, Beadle & Musgrave will work with the insurance companies to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Types of pedestrian accidents
A pedestrian accident lawyer typically works on cases involving those who were either struck by a vehicle or injured as a result of a separate accident nearby. A person struck by a car while walking on a crosswalk, or someone injured by debris from a car collision would be a part of a pedestrian accident. Insurance companies often deal with people who were directly involved in an accident but are less willing to help those who were indirectly involved. A pedestrian accident lawyer will fight on their behalf to get the support they deserve.
Another type of pedestrian accident involves those who were emotionally or psychologically affected by an accident. A bystander who witnesses a violent car crash or even a child who witnessed the death or serious injury of a loved one may suffer emotional and psychological injury and need medical or psychiatric care. These types of injuries are harder to receive compensation for due to the internalized nature of their symptoms, but that does not mean the injuries are not as impactful. Children especially need someone to make sure their needs are met. A pedestrian accident lawyer fights for their right to compensation and they fight for getting the help those injured deserved due to their experiences.
