If you have been a victim of a pedestrian accident, you are entitled to certain legal rights. The importance of pursuing these rights diligently and without delay cannot be overstated. So, do not delay. Call your Linden injury attorney for a free consultation.
You Are Entitled to the Same Professional Help as the Driver Insurance companies routinely dispatch claims adjusters and investigators immediately upon notification of an accident to interview witnesses and document evidence. They have teams of attorneys to protect their insured while seeking to deflate or deny outright an injured party’s lawful claims. You deserve the same legal protection and aggressive representation.
Your Linden injury attorney will immediately conduct a thorough investigation of your case. Your attorney will photograph the scene of the accident, identify and interview witnesses, contact the police department, review the collision report and identify all possible sources for financial compensation.
You Have a Right to Seek Compensation for Your Expenses, Lost Income, and Pain
Furthermore, as a pedestrian hit by a car, you need to understand, that it makes no difference whether the driver was not consciously looking out for you or simply distracted while driving. It is the pedestrian who pays the price. There is no doubt that hitting a pedestrian is illegal. As an injured victim, you have the right to pursue legal action for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of earning, scarring, and physical impairment caused by the pedestrian accident.
So, if you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, it is imperative that you contact a Linden injury attorney immediately. Delaying can severely impact your ability to make a claim and win your case.
