Being Hit & Injured As A Pedestrian Can Be Accident That Was Caused By Someone Else Can Be Extremely Expensive. 

Because pedestrians are completely unprotected, any collision with another vehicle typically results in catastrophic injuries if not fatalities. You may be lucky to be alive, but you are still likely to deal with the emotionally, physically, and financially devastating effects of the crash for some time. Depending on how extensive your injuries are – and even if you have good health insurance! – you may have to pay for medical bills relating to:

  • Ambulatory transport
  • Surgeries
  • Hospitalization
  • Blood transfusions
  • Emergency room/trauma unit care
  • Intensive care
  • Imaging tests like X-rays and CT scans and MRIs
  • Emergency dental work
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Mental health counseling
  • Rehabilitation
  • Copays
  • Deductibles 
  • And more. 

Sadly, some injuries may never fully heal and leave you permanently disabled in some way. They may require lifelong medical treatment, and may prevent you from working at all. If you can return to work, it will likely be some weeks or months before you can do so; you may have to use up your paid time off, or take time off without any pay. 

When you factor in all the costs of your injuries, they could easily add up to tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars. And that’s not including the intangible costs of the social activities you can no longer enjoy for a while, the constant pain you are feeling, the sleepless nights, the loss of enjoyment in hobbies you can’t participate in any more. One driver’s negligence can be extremely expensive, and not just monetarily.

Working With The Florida Law Group’s Fort Myers Car Accident Lawyers Can Help You Recover Full Compensation.

When the collision wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay a cent for the costs of treatment – it simply isn’t fair. The driver who hit you, or their insurance company, or your own insurance company, is responsible for covering those costs and for providing you with additional compensation to make up for the tragedy you have endured. 

Unfortunately, even if what happened was clear, insurance companies will do everything in their power to avoid giving you a fair settlement. They will attempt to deny or devalue your claim because doing so allows them to keep more money in their own pockets. Trying to negotiate with them on your own is exhausting and typically fruitless, as they know all the power is in their court. That’s why you need strong fort Myers pedestrian accident injury lawyers on your side who can stand up for your legal rights and force them to take your claim seriously! At The Florida Law Group, we are dedicated to winning. We’re not afraid to take your case to trial if that’s what it takes. We will never settle for less than what your injuries are truly worth!
