Madawaska County Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road-users. Unlike those traveling in passenger vehicles, in the event of a collision, pedestrians are completely exposed. Even bicyclists or motorcycle riders have the benefit of helmets and wearable protective gear to help mitigate the severity of injuries they may sustain in the event of a crash. However, people who are simply walking down the sidewalk, crossing the street at an intersection, or returning to their cars in a parking lot have no protection against a negligent driver.

When drivers collide with pedestrians, the repercussions can be unthinkable. Families can lose loved ones because of the wrongful conduct of a complete stranger. And pedestrians who survive accidents caused by negligent drivers often endure physical pain, long periods of hospitalization, disabling injuries, psychological trauma, and financial uncertainty. This is especially true when injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents prevent the injured party from returning to work. In these situations, injured pedestrians may find themselves in financial distress, unable to continue performing the duties of their job, unable to earn their regular wages, and unable to afford expensive costs of necessary medical treatment.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Madawaska County appreciate the physical pain, emotional distress, and financial challenges often incurred by victims of a driver’s wrongful conduct. Our Madawaska County pedestrian accident lawyers have a history of fighting on behalf of injured community members. We believe that no one should have to suffer because of someone else’s disregard for their neighbour’s safety. If you were injured by a driver’s negligence, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Madawaska County may be able to help you recover financial compensation for damages you incurred or will incur in the future because of the injuries you sustained. .

The process of recovering from serious injuries can be expensive. Oftentimes, the survivors of pedestrian accidents are forced to pay out-of-pocket for a number of essential, newly acquired costs. These costs often include:

  • Medical treatment
  • Rehabilitation specialist
  • Medical equipment
  • Mobility aids
  • Prescriptions
  • In-home attendant care
  • Physical therapy
  • Strength-training classes
  • Psychological counselling
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Accessibility adjustments to their homes
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • And more

Furthermore, if injured employees are unable to return to their workplaces, they may incur financial losses through lost wages and reduced future earning capacities. In the aftermath of an injury-causing pedestrian accident, economic damages can start piling up rapidly.

If you have incurred economic damages as a result of the injuries you sustained in your collision, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Madawaska County may be able to file a civil claim against the at-fault driver to help you recover financial compensation. Additionally, depending on the circumstances of your collision and the severity of the injuries you sustained, you may be eligible to pursue non-economic damages from the negligent driver.

Non-economic damages are often more difficult to quantify than easily calculable economic damages, but their impact on an accident survivor’s life can be even more devastating than financial losses. For those who have sustained permanent, life-changing, catastrophic injuries (including amputations, sensory losses, and paralysis), each moment of their lives can be a reminder of the trauma they have endured because of someone else’s negligence. In these situations, our Madawaska County pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to help injured pedestrians recover damages for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and possibly more.
