How do I know if I have a valid pedestrian accident claim?

To recover full compensation for your injuries and other losses stemming from your accident, you have to prove the motorist was at least partially at fault for causing your accident. There are many ways the driver of the vehicle may be at fault for the collision, including:

  • The driver failed to obey traffic signals or signs (this could include running a red light or stop sign).
  • The driver failed to yield to your right-of-way, particularly at an intersection.
  • The driver veered onto the sidewalk or did not yield to at the crosswalk.
  • A mobile device like a cell phone or GPS device distracted the driver.
  • The driver was speeding.
  • The driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Assigning fault in an accident claim can be tricky, especially when you do not have training or experience in gathering evidence and knowing what information will support your claim best. Additionally, you may need to present the information to the insurance company and negotiate a full and fair settlement, which is not always straightforward.

The personal injury claims process is complicated and can be overwhelming for many accident victims with serious injuries and losses. While we cannot take away your pain, we can relieve your legal burden, allowing you to focus on your physical and emotional recovery.

Preszler Injury Lawyers will conduct a full investigation of your case, collect statements from witnesses, and work with medical and vocational experts to produce the necessary evidence to support your claim and get you maximum compensation for your losses.

Finally, your lawyer will negotiate on your behalf for a full and fair settlement.

What can I recover with my pedestrian accident claim?

By filing a claim, you stand to recover compensation for all of the damages relating to your accident. However, your final award relies heavily on the facts of your case. Some pedestrian injuries result in substantial benefits.

The following factors impact the amount of your award:

  • The extent of your injuries and your recovery.
  • Your current medical bills.
  • Your future medical bills (including physical therapy, pain medication, etc.).
  • Lost wages.
  • Decreased earning capacity (for example, if your injury requires that you switch to a less strenuous job that pays less than your former occupation).
  • Your pain and suffering.

Insurance companies want to pay you the least amount of money possible. The adjuster may employ tactics to delay your claim or get you to make damaging statements about your accident to minimize it. Our job as your legal counsel is to protect your right to fair and full compensation for your injuries. We do this by gathering solid evidence and presenting a compelling case to the insurance company.
