My 85 year old mother struck by SUV while in a cross-walk

by Pam
(North Providence, RI)

My 85 year old mother was struck by an SUV while she was in the middle of a crosswalk in the middle of the day. She sustained serious injury to her foot, requiring home nursing care to change her dressings daily and several visits to a hospital wound center to remove dead tissue.

She suffers from RA and lives alone. It has been over 7 weeks since the accident and she has been unable to resume her normal activities.

For the first 3 weeks after the accident, she was unable to keep food down and was in excruciating pain. Medication caused severe vomiting. Besides the substantial medical costs involved in her treatment, what other compensatory amounts would she be entitled to?

The operator of the SUV had insurance. The accident occured December 18, 2009 in North Providence, RI.


Hello Pam,

She would be entitled to make a normal bodily injury claim if the other driver is found at fault. For more information about those damages, please see:

Good Luck,
