Demanding Maximum Compensation for Injured Pedestrians
A pedestrian accident can leave a victim with significant, life-altering injuries. If you have a Yakima pedestrian accident injury, you may be entitled to compensation for these damages:
- Costs of medical recovery, including surgeries and other medical procedures, hospital bills, doctors’ appointments, physical and occupational therapy, prescription medication, and mobility and medical equipment
- Costs of long-term care, such as home health care, or housecleaning, laundry, or lawn maintenance services when your injuries prevent you from taking care of those tasks
- Lost wages and income for the time you miss from work while recovering from your pedestrian accident injuries
- Lost earning capacity, if your injuries prevent you from earning as much as you did at your pre-accident job
- Pain and suffering, or the anguish and distress caused by your physical injuries.
- Lost quality of life, which can be caused by physical disabilities or disfigurement, or by the inability to participate in activities you previously enjoyed
In rare cases, you may also be entitled to an award of punitive damages. For example, punitive damages may be awarded if you are hit by an intoxicated driver who has an extended history of DUIs. Punitive damages are intended to punish the at-fault driver for his or her conduct. Punitive damages are also intended to deter other drivers from engaging in similar conduct.

- Medical bills from the injuries inflicted in the accident
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of the decedent’s care, companionship, society and services to the household
- Loss of the decedent’s expected financial contributions to the family or household
