How Can I Prove the Expenses and Losses I Incurred Due to My Garland Pedestrian Accident?
The pedestrian accident team from Loncar Lyon Jenkins may be able to develop a strong case against the motorist who caused your injuries and hold them responsible for their carelessness. This could result in a payout that compensates you for the expenses and losses you incurred because of the crash. This includes your financial, physical, and emotional damages.
However, we will need to document your damages to prove the value of your case and negotiate a fair settlement or convince the judge and jury you deserve a just award. This could include:
Costs Through the Date of Legal Action
Proving your current expenses and losses is generally straightforward. It could include:
- Medical bills
- Estimates for car repairs
- Documents showing your salary or wages and the time you missed at work
- Receipts for other related expenses
Future Expenses and Losses
Estimating the possible value of a future expense is more complicated. This often relies on medical experts who can predict future treatment needs, economists who can determine the value of future lost wages if you cannot return to work, and other expert testimony.
We can help you understand how the insurance company or courts may value your intangible damages. Examples of these damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Diminished quality of life
Loncar Lyon Jenkins Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Charge No Upfront Fees
The Loncar Lyon Jenkins pedestrian accident team represents those hurt in these accidents or the loved ones of pedestrians who died from their injuries.
Our team works based on contingency. We do not ask clients to pay us anything upfront or out of pocket. If we advocate for you in your case, we will only get our fees from the money damages we secure on your behalf. You will not need to pay us if we cannot hold the at-fault driver responsible and recover compensation.
Our Team Develops a Strong Case to Support Our Clients’ Claims or Lawsuits
The injury attorneys from Loncar Lyon Jenkins prepare each case we handle like we will need to take it to trial. We gather strong evidence and develop an argument that shows negligence, liability, and the fair value of the client’s losses.
We do not always need to sue the at-fault motorist and go to trial, but we will have a case ready to go if we do.
Preparing for trial in every case also offers an advantage in settlement negotiations. The insurance company and at-fault driver know we are serious about a lawsuit, and this may make it easier to reach a fair and just agreement.
Will My Garland Pedestrian Accident Support Legal Action?
If you suffered an injury in a pedestrian versus motor vehicle crash and we can show that the driver’s careless actions were to blame, you likely have a case for compensation. The Loncar Lyon Jenkins traffic accident team knows how to prove negligence and liability.
When we represent an injured pedestrian, we need to show that four things occurred to win a case against the driver. This includes:
- The driver had a specific responsibility, such as stopping before turning right at a traffic signal.
- They did not uphold that responsibility, acting carelessly and recklessly.
- Because of their actions, they struck you and you were hurt.
- You sustained physical and financial damages due to the crash.

When Is the Best Time for a Free Consultation About my Case?
