To learn more about getting your case started, call today to schedule a free consultation.

Common injuries in a pedestrian accident

While drivers have significant protections built into their vehicles, pedestrians cannot say the same. A pedestrian has little to no cushioning when struck by a car, truck, or motorcycle. Given their vulnerability as well as the massive size difference between a car and a person, these collisions are often catastrophic.While no two accidents are the same, some injuries are especially common in a pedestrian accident. These include:

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Road rash
  • Concussions
  • Paralysis
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Internal bleeding

How an experienced trial lawyer can help

At Preszler Law, we achieve a satisfactory settlement with the at-fault party in most of our cases. However, our ability to resolve a claim is based in part on our dedicated approach– we treat every case as if it would ultimately go to trial. This strategy puts a pedestrian accident lawyer from our firm in the best position to recover the compensation our clients deserve.

When an insurance company first takes on a claim from a driver, they will dedicate their efforts to paying out the least amount of money. It makes no difference if your claim is strong; these carriers will look for any opportunity to shortchange you. They will often use bullying tactics and pressure you to settle for less than what your claim is worth. This approach is common, as the insurance companies know it often works against people without legal representation.

Because we are always ready for trial, there is no pressure to listen to unfair offers from insurance carriers. Once these companies recognize Preszler Law is on the case, they are more likely to negotiate in good faith.
