Potential Compensation for Victims of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accident victims often face a long recovery process, dealing with severe physical, emotional, and financial burdens.

Compensation may include:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes the cost of immediate medical care post-accident, including ambulance fees, emergency room charges, surgeries, hospital stays, and any specialized treatments. It also covers long-term rehabilitation and any future medical needs arising from the accident.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for the income the victim loses while recovering from their injuries. This includes not only lost salary or wages but also lost opportunities such as bonuses, promotions, and other employment benefits.
  • Pain and Suffering: This refers to the physical discomfort and emotional distress the victim endures as a result of the accident. It acknowledges that not all damages are financial and seeks to provide monetary relief for these intangible losses.
  • Future Care Needs: Addresses the ongoing and future medical treatments, physical therapy sessions, and any home modifications needed to accommodate the victim’s injuries. This ensures that the victim can manage their recovery and adapt to life post-accident.
  • Property Damage: Covers the repair or replacement costs of any personal belongings that were damaged in the accident, including the vehicle, electronics, clothing, and other valuable items.
  • Punitive Damages: Imposed in cases of gross negligence to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar future conduct. These are awarded in addition to compensatory damages and are not tied directly to the victim’s losses but rather to the severity of the defendant’s misconduct.


At Langston & Lott, we are dedicated to ensuring your claim fully accounts for your losses and facilitates your recovery process.

How Langston & Lott Fights Against the Insurance Companies

At Langston & Lott, our Tupelo pedestrian accident lawyers are keenly aware of the strategies insurance companies use to minimize compensation. These tactics can include disputing the severity of injuries, arguing that the injuries pre-existed the accident, attributing fault to the victim, underestimating the costs of medical treatment, and delaying the claims process to pressure victims into settling for less. 

Our team is committed to countering these tactics by documenting the full extent of your losses, negotiating assertively, and, if necessary, pursuing litigation to ensure you receive fair compensation for your suffering and financial losses. Our decades of experience and knowledge equip us to advocate effectively on your behalf, ensuring that your rights are protected throughout the claims process.

What Are the Steps to Take Following a Pedestrian Accident in Tupelo?

Following a pedestrian accident, it’s time to prioritize your health and legal rights. 

Firstly, seek medical attention immediately, even if injuries seem minor, as some symptoms may appear later. Documenting every visit and treatment is beneficial for your claim. 

Report the accident to the police to ensure there’s an official record. Collect evidence at the scene, if possible, including photos and contact information of witnesses. 

Avoid discussing fault at the scene or with insurance companies before consulting with an attorney. 

Keep a detailed diary of your recovery process and how the accident affects your daily life, including work, leisure, and family activities. 

Contact a pedestrian accident lawyer early to guide you through the process, protect your rights, and help secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.
