Lawyer for Victims of Pedestrian Accidents
Almost 5,000 people are killed in pedestrian accidents each and every year. Thousands more are severely injured and are left with medical conditions that require extensive or lifelong medical treatment. Pedestrian accidents can be devastating and can result in more serious injuries than a car-on-car accident.
Following a pedestrian accident, the driver’s insurance company may offer you a settlement. The first inclination of many people is to accept an offer, especially if the number looks quite high. However, the cost of emergency medical care, surgeries, medications and physical therapy quickly adds up and can easily surpass the insurance company’s offer. You must also account for physical and emotional pain and suffering, loss of income, other economic consequences. Insurance companies may also attempt to shift the blame from the negligent driver they insure to the pedestrian themselves, and you need someone experienced in your corner ensuring the right people are held accountable.
