Pedestrian Accident in New Mexico
Auto accidents don’t just occur between cars. They are also very real issues in the case of pedestrians, who are constantly at the mercy of negligent drivers. Pedestrians are in constant danger of other vehicles, especially because they are not protected by vehicles themselves. Even an accident with a pedestrian at low speeds can result in major physical damage that affects that pedestrian’s life permanently. These accidents are very common and have a wide range of potential physical damages and even death. Drivers moving at only 10 miles-per-hour can still cause severe and possibly permanent damage to a pedestrian.
Are You a Victim of a Pedestrian Accident?
If you are the victim of a pedestrian accident, you must establish liability of the other party, which means that you must prove that they are responsible for your injury as the result of negligence of some other mistake. Once you have established that the other party is responsible for the accident, you can then seek compensation based on the damages that you have incurred. These damages are not always purely physical damages. Emotional distress, suffering, and lost wages are all factors in many pedestrian accidents.
It is crucial to seek immediate legal action after a pedestrian accident. Of course, you must first seek necessary medical attention to address any physical injuries that have occurred. After seeking necessary medical care, you should then begin consulting with your attorney on how you can begin to seek compensation and justice for your accident.
