Pedestrians tend to suffer greatly in any accident that involves a motor vehicle. Tragic death and serious injury are unfortunately very common occurrences in an accident. Pedestrian accidents have a wide range of causes; for instance, a pedestrian may be hit by a vehicle when doing a number of things: jogging through a crosswalk, walking through a parking lot, exiting a bus or another vehicle, or a number of other circumstances.
A pedestrian who is involved in any sort of accident has the right to seek just compensation for any injuries that were sustained. It's important to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer as early on in the process as possible, as pedestrian accident cases can turn out to be very complex. For instance, the accident could have occurred due to a fault in the dangerous conditions of the road or sidewalk, instead of an error by the driver.
Should I work with a pedestrian accident attorney right away?
The short answer is yes. The more time a pedestrian accident attorney has the better they'll be able to prove your case. If you wait too long to take action, you run the risk of losing witnesses, evidence, or insurance companies trying to take advantage of you. After an injury occurs you'll want to work with a lawyer almost immediately.
Some victims of a pedestrian accident believe that they can handle their cases all on their own. Most who go through with this end up regretting this decision later. Often, the victim will assume that the insurance company has their best interests in mind. However, this is far from reality and the victim will usually end up with much lower compensation than they would have received in working with an attorney.
