Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Victims in Indiana

Indiana law allows pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles to file personal injury claims or lawsuits against the negligent party to receive compensation. Compensatory damages are designed to compensate the victim for out-of-pocket expenses and other losses caused by the collision. These are often referred to as economic and non-economic damages.

If you were hit by a motor vehicle and the driver was negligent, our Indiana pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to help you receive payment for:

  • Medical Expenses

You may be entitled to compensation to pay for the care you received from paramedics at the scene, the ambulance, emergency room treatment, surgeries, extended hospital stays, x-rays and other imaging, laboratory tests, prescription medications, medical devices and equipment, in-home nursing care, and medically necessary modifications to your home or vehicle.

  • Lost Wages

If your injuries are so severe that you are unable to return to work, our pedestrian accident lawyers can help you recover your lost wages. If you are able to return to your job, but you must work fewer hours or take a position that pays less, we can help you recover compensation to make up the difference.

  • Pain and Suffering

If your injuries cause you to suffer from physical pain or emotional distress, you are forced to endure ongoing medical treatment or multiple surgeries, or you are unable to enjoy activities you enjoyed prior to your accident, you may be able to recover for these non-economic losses.

  • Punitive Damages

Unlike compensatory damages, which are designed to make the victim whole, punitive damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer and prevent similar actions in the future. These damages are sometimes awarded in cases involving malicious acts and those that are extremely reckless.
