Each year, over 100,000 pedestrians are struck by vehicles. When these accidents occur, one or both parties may be at fault. When motorists are at fault, there may be many factors which instigated negligence including:
- Failure to maintain lanes
- Cell phone use
- Driving while intoxicated
- Mechanical failure of the vehicle
- Missing or ignoring crosswalk signals
If you have been struck by a motorist and feel that the other party is at fault, Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP may be able to help. Our legal team handles personal injury cases every day and we are the experts in representing those who have been harmed in pedestrian accidents, auto accidents, and public transportation accidents.
When Wrongful Death Occurs
The loss of a loved one is painful and difficult, especially when a negligent driver is at fault. No amount of compensation will bring your loved one back, but it may ease your situation as you heal. There are many factors to consider when beginning wrongful death proceedings against a business or individual. The primary consideration is whether you are within the legal time frame to bring forth a wrongful death suit. In Georgia, you can only make a wrongful death claim within two years of the death.
Our litigators have experience prosecuting wrongful death suits in a myriad of situations, including pedestrian accidents. We will gather evidence such as witness accounts, expert testimony, crime scene photographs, and more.
You could receive compensation for any damages your family has incurred as a result of wrongful death including any medical expenses prior to death, funeral costs, loss of expected earnings, loss of inheritance, loss of companionship, and much more.
Proving fault may be difficult, which is why having experienced litigators on your side is important. Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP will handle all legal proceedings so you can focus on your family during this time.
Every driver on the road has a duty of care to maintain. When this duty is breached, accidents occur. If you or a loved one has been injured or fatally wounded due to a motorist’s negligence, we are here to help.
