The Importance of Strong Evidence in a Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit

The Importance of Strong Evidence in a Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit

The carelessness that leads a motorist to strike a pedestrian is unacceptable. For decades, Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers has protected the rights of pedestrians who were killed or catastrophically injured by irresponsible drivers. We know that one of the most critical parts to winning a pedestrian accident lawsuit is a thorough investigation and uncovering as much evidence as possible.

Below is a breakdown of how we build our clients’ cases by pursuing every important detail of the crash.

Uncovering Evidence and Building the Case

After filing a pedestrian accident lawsuit, our team gets to work gathering details to build our client’s case. In our investigation, we do the following:

  • Identify and speak with people who were witness to the crash.
  • Obtain records of any related medical bills, receipts, and lost earnings.
  • Travel to the scene of the crash and take photos.
  • Take photos of the injuries resulting from the accident.
  • Obtain the police report of the crash.
  • If the injured victim is able to recall the events before, during and after the crash, we record every detail he or she remembers.

Over the years, named firm partner Jon Ostroff has shown an outstanding ability to find the key evidence that wins cases. His successes and commitment to his clients has earned him a great reputation across Pennsylvania.

Recoverable Damages

After finding evidence and building a strong case, our team then works to recover damages for the victim and his or her family. The term “damages” refers to the money they deserve for their injuries and losses resulting from the crash. These may include:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills and other related expenses
  • Lost income due to the injuries or death of the victim
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium, meaning the damages the victim’s family has suffered

Our goal with every case is to maximize our client’s recovery. Their future well-being is our priority.
