Boston Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Much too often Massachusetts pedestrians are struck by motor vehicles. Soft tissue injuries, fractures, and even death can result when inattentive drivers strike pedestrians. As a Boston pedestrian accident lawyer I have handled many cases as unfortunately, these incidents happen all too frequently. It is important to know what your rights are if you were struck as a pedestrian.
Payment of Your Medical Bills
The car insurance company for the person who struck you is responsible to pay for your “reasonable and necessary” medical bills following the accident. This would include ambulance, hospital, and all other follow-up treatment caused by the accident. Your private health insurance company may also be responsible for paying your medical bills you incur following the accident.
Payment of Lost Wages
If you lose time from work then the car insurance company for the person who hit you is responsible for paying 75% of your gross lost wages that result from the accident. Necessary paperwork must be filled out by your employer to establish the amount of lost wages you sustained.
Payment for Pain and Suffering
Another source of recovery for you can be for pain and suffering. This is non-taxable money paid to you for the physical and mental distress caused by the accident. Please note your accident-related medical bills must be at least $2000. This compensation is also available for scarring and disfigurement.
