How Do I Know if I Have a Pedestrian Accident Case?
Whether or not you have a pedestrian accident case will depend on three factors. First, you want to see whether or not you have liability facts. Liability facts allow you to hold the person who injured you responsible for your injuries. Usually in Texas that means a standard of care called negligence, which means that they fail to act with ordinary care and precaution and as a result you were injured. Second, you want to see whether or not you have sufficient damages that make it worth your time and hassle to go through with filing a claim for a personal injury. Damages include things like your medical bills from the injury, your lost wages, as well as your pain and suffering. Third, you want to see whether or not there is a source of recovery, which usually in Texas means some sort of insurance policy that will cover the negligent actions of the person who injured you. If you are unsure whether or not you have all of these elements, talk to a personal injury lawyer.
