Drivers owe a duty of care to pedestrians just as they do to other drivers. If a driver hit you, you can pursue compensation to cover your losses. Auto insurance policies usually cover pedestrian accidents, or you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
Our Indiana pedestrian accident lawyers from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can handle your case while you rest and recuperate. A settlement or verdict may cover your medical bills, lost wages, and more.
Potential Damages for Your Indiana Pedestrian Accident
You shouldn’t have to foot the bill for injuries that resulted from someone else’s negligence. We can pursue damages to account for a variety of your accident-related losses.
Pedestrian accidents can result in severe injuries. You may have required emergency room care and a series of surgeries, which can leave you with crippling medical debt. If your injuries prove debilitating, you may also face a lifetime of care.
You can seek damages for both your immediate and future medical expenses. Awards may cover your accident-related medical bills to date, along with rehabilitative therapy, in-home aid, and medical devices. We can speak to your doctors to get an idea of how your prognosis will affect your financial situation.
You likely took time off of work to heal from your injuries. Your settlement should account for this loss. You can also seek missed bonuses, benefits, and paid leave.
Reduced Earning Capacity
Your injuries may prevent you from returning to work. Even if you can perform light-duty work, you may suffer a pay cut. You can seek damages for the difference between your pre-injury income and what you can earn after the accident.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering warrants compensation, as well. If you file a personal injury lawsuit, you can seek awards for your physical pain and emotional turmoil. Our lawyers can calculate this loss using various methods.
Loss of Quality of Life
If you suffer permanent impairment, your day-to-day life will never be quite the same. You will likely miss out on hobbies you once enjoyed and have to adjust to a new daily routine. You deserve compensation for this loss of quality of life.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you can file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Potential compensation can help your family adjust in their absence. We can pursue awards for:
- Funeral costs, including burial or cremation services
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
- Your loved one’s companionship
- Your loved one’s income
- Your lost wages if you took time off work to tend to their injuries
We can work to seek compensation on behalf of a spouse, children, or parents. You deserve to grieve in peace. We can handle everything else.

Act Quickly to Protect Your Right to Compensation
According to Indiana Code Section 34-11-2-4, you generally have to file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the accident. If you fail to do so, the court could dismiss your case, costing you the opportunity to hold a liable party responsible.
The sooner you get started on your case, the better. Keep in mind, it takes time to investigate an accident, gather evidence, and negotiate a settlement. None of these actions change the deadline, though.
We can get to work immediately to help you abide by the deadline.
