A pedestrian accident lawyer understands that getting into an accident is never a pleasant experience. But dealing with insurance companies can easily be the most difficult part of any accident. Monitoring your claim, recovering from a serious accident, taking time off work, and even dealing with financial concerns can be stressful and all-consuming. You may be thinking if hiring a pedestrian accident attorney is really worth the trouble.

Here’s How We Prove Fault

Establishing liability in a pedestrian accident case can be a challenging and time-consuming process. Victims frequently sustain significant injuries, to the point where they are unable to make a statement at the scene. In some circumstances, the driver’s statement to police can affect the outcome of an investigation, putting the victim at a disadvantage.

A Garrison Law Firm pedestrian accident lawyer will need to analyze a number of facts in order to determine fault and make sure it can be proven. This necessitates a thorough investigation that includes accident reconstruction experts, witnesses, police records, doctors, and other professionals.

Drivers are responsible for driving with a reasonable duty of care. They should not speed, drive distractedly, or disregard traffic laws. Around children, extreme caution is expected. Drivers must take additional caution in residential areas and near schools or playgrounds since children’s actions and movements can be unpredictable.

Please Note:

Pedestrians do not always have the right of way in traffic, contrary to popular assumption. Pedestrians are accountable for exercising caution in order to protect themselves. It is against the law to jaywalk, disregard walk signals, or dart into traffic. In an accident case, this could be considered contributory negligence, rendering them entirely or partially at fault.

You Don’t Pay Unless We Win

At Garrison Law Firm, a pedestrian accident lawyer works on a contingency fee basis, which means that hiring us will not cost you anything out of pocket. A contingency fee is a fee paid to your attorney that is based on the outcome of the case. Rest assured, you owe no legal fees unless compensation is obtained on your behalf.

This is a win-win situation for both our pedestrian accident lawyer and you. You won’t have to worry about paying additional bills while the case is pending, and our attorneys will be able to focus on winning rather than billing a set number of hours.
