When a pedestrian is involved in a vehicle crash, it’s common for insurance companies and drivers to try to place blame on the pedestrians. They will often claim that the pedestrian wasn’t paying attention to where they were walking or failed to follow traffic laws. It can be difficult to find witnesses who saw the whole thing happen, so it’s often up to the victim to provide evidence to back up their account. It can be more difficult to get insurance adjusters to pay for pedestrian accident victims than victims involved in a car accident. The attorneys at the Law Office of Eric Harron are experienced in pedestrian accidents and are prepared to get you the compensation you deserve.
When You’re Involved in an Accident
It is very important that pedestrian victims involved in automobile or truck accidents get legal representation early on. Typically, pedestrian accident victims are being rushed to the hospital and/or incapacitated when the driver of the vehicle is being interviewed, so disputes over liability are often brought up. The Law Office of Eric Harron can help those who have been a victim in an auto vs. pedestrian accident, and who may have had no voice during the initial investigation of the collision, to ensure a complete investigation with the victim’s account. The sooner you obtain legal counsel, the more likely it is that you can recover your total personal injury damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
A personal injury lawyer with experience in pedestrian accidents will be able to help you evaluate and document any and all damages and injuries that were a result from the accident. These cases usually involve orthopedic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, disfigurement, and, at times, even paralysis or death.
It’s important that you seek immediate medical attention at the time of any injury and keep documentation of any diagnosis and treatment, as well as any pain or damages you may have as a result of injuries sustained in the accident. Some insurance companies will try to have you waive responsibility or sign documents that prevent you from filing lawsuits. Do not sign any documents until you’ve had an attorney from the Law Office of Eric Harron look over it.
