San Diego is known as a city that is friendly to pedestrians. The issue with this is that not all drivers take the time to ensure that people who are walking about can do so safely. Without cooperation from everyone, there are going to be accidents that involve people who are walking around or riding on bicycles. In many cases, these are the fault of negligent drivers.
Accidents that pit a person who is on a bike or who is walking against a motor vehicle usually don’t end well. These victims can suffer from life-threatening injuries that can take considerable time to heal. They have to handle an influx of medical bills, the pain of having traumatic injuries, the mental impacts of suffering greatly and the reduction in income that is likely.
We know that most pedestrians didn’t go out of their home with the intention of being struck by a vehicle. When one of these accidents occurs, the person might not have the savings to draw on to cover everything. This can put them in dire financial straits. We don’t want to think that anyone would have to suffer this much due to the actions of another person.
One option that you do have to reduce the impact the accident has on your life is to seek compensation from the driver who slammed into you. This isn’t a quick answer to the financial woes, but it is one that might help you in the long run. We can help you put your case together and get it moving forward as soon as possible.
