Why You Need a Pedestrian Accident Attorney
When you’re injured in a pedestrian accident, your first focus should be on recovering. Unfortunately, many people are too worried about how they’ll pay for their medical bills and other costs to give their recovery the full attention it needs. Many of these individuals are also trying to handle all the claims on their own. No one is required to retain a personal injury attorney to receive compensation for their pedestrian accident injuries, but research shows getting an attorney increases one’s settlement.
The Insurance Research Council reported that people who hire a personal injury attorney to help them with their case receive a settlement that is 3-and-a-half times greater than those who do the work themselves.
Insurance companies are notorious for making lowball offers. Many people may think the offer they receive is good (that’s what the insurance company will tell you) or they’re not inclined to push back. It can be tough to advocate for yourself. That’s where our Personal Injury Team comes in. We recognize when an insurance adjuster is not providing a fair offer, and we’re not afraid to challenge them. If need be, we’ll take the case to court.
When you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, you should only have to worry about getting well.
