What mistakes should I avoid after a pedestrian accident?
I recently met with a new client who had been injured as she was crossing the street, and she had a question that many of my clients have, and that you may also have if you’ve been injured as a pedestrian. The question was: What mistakes can you make and how can they hurt your case? The first mistake you can make is not seeking immediate medical attention. That’s very important to do if you’ve been hurt. The second mistake that you can make is not following your doctor’s instructions. The third mistake you can make is giving a recorded statement to the other party’s insurance company. I think the fourth mistake you can make is not seeking legal advice in a timely manner.
How much is my pedestrian accident claim worth?
If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may be wondering how much your pedestrian injury claim is worth. That depends. It depends on the nature and extent of your injuries, for one. It also depends on the amount of medical care you need. It depends, too, on whether you’re going to need medical care in the future and how much that might cost. It will depend on whether you lost wages because of your injuries and whether in the future you’re going to have lost wages as well. It’s going to depend on how long you are treated for your injuries.
These are all questions that can’t be answered at a first or even second meeting with your lawyer. You need to hire an experienced injury lawyer who knows how to get the answers to these questions for you in order to give you an evaluation of your claim. If you have additional questions about your injury claim, please feel free to call us.
How long will it take to resolve my pedestrian accident claim?
A client of mine recently asked how long it would take to resolve her pedestrian accident claim. If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian, you may have the same question. The answer to that question is, well, it depends. It depends on the nature and extent of your injuries – how severe are they? It’s going to depend on how long you have to receive treatment for your injuries. It’s going to depend on if you miss work, as well as if you have to be rehabilitated in any way. It’s going to depend on how willing the insurance company is to resolve your claim in a fair manner. If they’re not, then a lawsuit probably has to be filed, and you’re going to have to have a trial, adding on months, if not a year or more, to your claim.
