Financial concerns associated with pedestrian accidents

Posted by Frank Piscitelli | Jan 04, 2020 | 0 Comments

In terms of one's physical well-being, a pedestrian accident can be disastrous. Even if a victim is lucky enough to survive being struck by a vehicle that is much larger than them, they may have a lot of other hardships to confront. The mental toll can be very devastating, and many victims also suffer from a financial point of view. In this blog post, we will look into some of the different financial hardships that are not uncommon in the wake of a pedestrian accident.

First of all, hospital expenses can be very costly, and many people also face financial problems related to rehabilitation. Aside from medical issues, many pedestrian accident victims have to take time off work. Some are able to stay afloat due to savings or even workers' comp benefits (if the accident occurred while they were at work), but others may have little to help them through such a tough time. If you are unsure of how you will keep paying your bills or providing food for your family because you are no longer able to work, it is pivotal to look into your legal options.

Filing a lawsuit can be tough, especially for someone who is emotionally struggling with the aftermath of a pedestrian accident. However, it could open up benefits that can allow someone to stay current on their financial obligations and even secure compensation for all of the suffering that they have endured. You may be feeling depressed or stressed out about your current financial situation and your future as a result of the difficulties that a pedestrian accident has brought into your life, but taking legal action against a reckless driver could make a world of difference.

As a first-generation Italian in the United States, Frank is no stranger to tough times. His father's family moved to Cleveland from Italy on May 22, 1958, with a few articles of clothing, some personal items and very little money. His family shared a home with three other related families but happily worked long hours doing jobs that involved physical labor, just to put food on the table. There was the promise of hope and opportunity, which was missing before his family moved here.
