Why is an Attorney Necessary?
Even when a pedestrian accident seems straightforward, that may not always be the case. The defendant’s insurance company may dispute the events of the accident and could even try to blame you for your own injuries. Your attorney will combat these tactics by:
Thoroughly investigating the incident (photos, video surveillance, police reports, eyewitness statements, etc.).
Obtaining your medical records and bills to show your economic losses.
Tirelessly negotiating with all parties involved to reach a fair settlement.
We have years of experience dealing with insurance companies. Following an accident, the at-fault party’s insurance company will typically offer you a low settlement for your injuries. We will fight to make sure you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian Accidents Can Lead to Major Expenses
Pedestrians have no protection from the force of a vehicle slamming into their bodies. Thousands of pounds of force can lead to serious injuries. It is not uncommon for a pedestrian accident victims to encounter the following:
All too often, pedestrian crashes happen in places where the pedestrian has the right of way, including crosswalks, intersections, parking lots, and sidewalks. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) tells us that there were 811 California pedestrian fatalities and more than 15,000 pedestrian injuries during the latest reporting year. A high percentage of all pedestrian crashes result in an injury or a fatality.
Some of the main causes of pedestrian collisions include drivers who speed, are impaired, or are distracted behind the wheel. Car accidents, and any other motor vehicle accident for that matter, can easily turn into pedestrian accidents.
