Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries in Sunnyvale
Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are common in pedestrian accidents. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, disfigurement, paralysis, and broken bones can be life-changing for injured pedestrians and their families. Pedestrian accident injuries often lead to enormous medical expenses and lost income.
When pedestrians suffer fatal injuries, their families are often left to cope with financial and emotional damages as a result of losing their loved ones. Surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for their damages, such as lost financial support and funeral expenses, under a wrongful death claim. In some cases, compensation for losses that the decedent sustained before death may be recovered by the estate.

Pedestrian accidents are emotional cases because of the severe injuries and damages that are often involved.
