Pedestrian accidents can happen in many ways and causing varying injuries and even death. In one recent accident, for example, local police investigated a crash involving a pedestrian that resulted in closing several main thoroughfares. In that particular case, the police determined that the victim suffered serious injuries and there was more than one pedestrian that had been hit by the negligent driver. The crash happened just after the lunch hour at a busy intersection.
Our Broomfield pedestrian accident lawyers know from experience that pedestrians often get hit by cars at the most busy times of the day, when people are walking to lunch, going shopping, or running errands. However, accidents happen all the time, regardless of what time of the day or night. In one instance, an SUV plowed into a group of people in downtown Denver who had just walked out of a bar after a night of celebrating. On the other hand, parents, babysitters, or childcare providers are especially vulnerable walking children to and from school or daycare. Bad drivers do not discriminate, and our Broomfield pedestrian accident attorneys always investigate to see whether the pedestrian was hit by a drunk-driver or drugs were involved.
In one tragic case, in 2014 our Broomfield injury attorneys learned about a Broomfield High School student who was critically hurt when the young man was hit by a car near the high school. There, the victim got hit by a car driven by another high school student while the victim was standing near another vehicle. Our Broomfield pedestrian accident lawyers learned that the victim’s injuries were so bad that Broomfield High School decided to send out their Trauma Response Team to give counseling to students and staff who knew the victim and were traumatized by the incident.Getting Justice for Pedestrian Accident Victims
Unfortunately, for victims of pedestrian accidents in Broomfield and other Colorado cities, the injuries caused by an accident can have a life-long impact physically, emotionally, and financially. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, our Broomfield pedestrian accident attorneys understand how to recover for losses such as past and future medical treatment, pain and suffering and emotional damages, as well as for physical impairment that a victim has endured and may continue to endure for the rest of his or her life. This is especially important when the injured pedestrian is relatively young, with a good job or job prospects, a family, or other dependents, and the injuries suffered of the collision will last for several decades. In such cases, an experienced Broomfield pedestrian lawyer will likely hire experts to demonstrate to the insurance companies, or a jury if necessary, the financial toll of the victim’s harms and losses.
At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, we have worked with national and local experts, when necessary, to prove things like the pedestrian was not at fault (if liability is disputed), that the injuries were caused by the collision (often times this is straightforward, but not always), and the total dollar value of the financial impact of the crash. Our Broomfield pedestrian attorneys regularly work with economists, accident reconstructionists, doctors, and life-care planners as the need arises. When wrongful death is involved, meaning that a pedestrian was killed by a car while walking or in the street, we will do the same thing for members of the victim’s family to optimize the value of wrongful death of pedestrians.
