With 20+ years of experience handling injury claims, a perfect 10 AVVO rating, and Top American Lawyer Recognitions, we serve all our personal injury clients with expert-level legal guidance to ensure they receive the maximum settlement amount. Let’s look at the following case study, in which we managed to secure a $1.4M settlement for our client.
Overview of Case
Our client was walking along the dirt driveway of a residence when a car reversed up the driveway and struck his leg, requiring surgery. His leg later became infected, and it spread throughout his body. He died as a result.
Challenges Faced During The Case
Fault & Liability Issues
The insurance company tried to blame him; it alleged that he walked into the car’s path. We hired an accident reconstructionist who did a full scene investigation to prove that the driver was solely at fault and further that our client was not.
No Money For Medical Bills
Our client had no health insurance and no money but had more than $100,000 in unpaid medical bills. We were able to get nearly all of the medical bills waived.
Our Relationship With High-Level Clinics Guarantees Access To Treatment
At The Jones Firm, we understand that accidents happen and sometimes, it’s not your fault. If the other person involved has insurance, we guarantee access to a high-level clinic and will hold your medical bills until a settlement is reached. We have a good relationship with high-level clinics and can help you get a treatment plan even if you don’t have insurance.
In cases where medical bills are higher than the settlement, we can reduce our fees to alleviate the burden of high bills. Additionally, we work with emergency rooms and high-end clinics to ensure that you receive the best care possible.
If you’re struggling to pay your medical bills, we offer a charity program that may be able to help. We can also assist you in getting your bills waived by expensive clinics.

What Is Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death claim arises against a person or organization whose careless or malicious behavior resulted in someone’s death. Often, it is presented by the deceased’s estate or remaining family members.
Cases involving wrongful deaths include those brought on by car accidents, pedestrian accidents, medical negligence, workplace accidents, and more. The claimant must demonstrate that the other’s negligent act or omission resulted in the death.
Compensation for losses includes pre-death pain and suffering, medical bills, burial costs, missed pay, and loss of companionship, among others, all of which may be recovered in a successful wrongful death claim.
Wrongful Death In A Pedestrian Car Accident?
Unjustified deaths frequently result from car crashes involving pedestrians. The injuries that might result from a car hitting a person can be serious and frequently deadly.
In circumstances where the motorist was careless, irresponsible, or otherwise caused damage, the victim’s family may pursue a wrongful death claim against the driver. To establish wrongful death, the plaintiff must show that the driver violated their duty of care, which led to the collision and, eventually, the pedestrian’s death.
Compensation for losses includes pre-death pain and suffering, medical bills, burial costs, missed pay, and loss of companionship, among others, all of which may be recovered in a successful wrongful death claim. It is crucial to speak with a personal injury lawyer to go through your legal alternatives in situations like these. Call The Jones Firm. We can help today.

Steps To Take If You Are A Pedestrian Car Accident Victim
Car accidents involving pedestrians can result in catastrophic injuries and suffering. If you are hurt in a car accident as a pedestrian, take these steps:
- Contact the police and request they come to the scene.
- Gather details from the driver and any witnesses.
- Immediately seek medical help.
- Speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer.
- Avoid speaking with insurance providers without first talking to a lawyer.
- Continue receiving medical care until you’re healed and retain receipts for all payments.
- Avoid sharing details of the incident on social media.
Car Accident No Insurance – What do I do?
If you are a car accident victim and you don’t have insurance, rest assured that we are able to help you at The Jones Firm!
If you are ever in a car accident, it’s crucial to report it to the police right away. They’ll come to the scene and record all the necessary details, such as who was involved, how the accident occurred, and insurance information. If the police can’t come, be sure to take pictures of all parties’ driver’s licenses, insurance cards, and license discs, as well as any witnesses.
It’s also important to document any injuries you sustained in the accident. Get medical attention within a few days and record all injuries, including tightness, tenderness, dizziness, range of motion issues, and any other symptoms.
The Stick Figure Method
Draw a stick figure from head to toe to document any injuries. I have found that the stick figure method to report injuries is helpful to accident victims. The idea is to draw a stick figure and indicate any injuries or pain in relation to your body. Overlooking any injuries might be problematic as the process of seeking compensation continues.
Don’t overlook any injuries, even if they seem minor. If you have trouble bending over or raising your hand, you may have a torn labrum or rotator cuff issue. Seek medical attention immediately for any injuries.
If a lawyer provides any witness information, document it. Lastly, if you need help filing a compensation claim, contact The Jones Firm.
