Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Nowadays, most insurance companies process a lot (can be even thousands) of personal injury claims from vehicular accidents. And probably because of the huge money involved, it's not uncommon for the one staking the claim to find the offer by the insurance company a little bit off (well, actually significantly less) than the actual claim value. This is where pedestrian accident lawyers come to. To try to settle for a more justifiable amount that the insurance company should give the victim.

Why Should You Hire A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

If you think you can make it alone unto pursuing the company for a justified amount of money in your claim, then you're gonna have a bad time. There are a lot of reasons why you should have a lawyer at your side when things like these happen, and listed below are some of the most important ones:

  • They'll help you win the case. Well obviously, these attorneys are hired to help you with the case. But it's not as simple as it is, they'll take care of all the legal obligations you might need to do, like all the documents and stuff. Bottom line is, they know what they are doing, and knows more about the laws than you do, so it's always better to have one.
  • They'll help you get compensated with the right amount for your claim. Sometimes, you'll want a claim which can be way above the right amount. This is okay for you because you're the victim. Going for that will just make the whole case go longer, so regarding this, it's good to have a lawyer to discuss the realistic amount of money you should fight for. You should press your demands on this one.

How Much Should I Ask The Insurance Company?

This is probably one of the most common questions clients try to ask their pedestrian accident lawyers. There are a lot of things to consider regarding this, such as:

  • The extent of damage. This is pretty much common sense. If the damage done is enough to prohibit you from working a livelihood, then this could amount to thousands or probably more. Remember that this doesn't actually refer to limbs being lost or all that, because traumas and other psychological damages can also be the basis for this. Basically, the higher or the greater the damage, the higher should be the compensation. You can consult with a pedestrian accident lawyer regarding this.
  • You've sustained long time, or even permanent damages. Like what was stated above, traumas and other psychological or even emotional damages can also be applicable here. Also, it applies here if you've been forced to take medications or other specialized medical procedures even after months or years after the incident. The rule that the longer the time, the higher the compensation should be.

You should also take note that for minor injuries, including sprains or bruises, you don't necessarily hire a pedestrian accident lawyer. It'll just cost you more than what they'll compensate you. Except if you're a really famous person though.
