Should I Hire an Attorney After a Pedestrian Car Accident?

Yes, if you were involved in a pedestrian accident, it is highly recommended to hire an attorney who can help you navigate through this difficult situation. An attorney will help you set in motion an investigation into the circumstances of the accident, will collect relevant evidence from the scene and witnesses, and will deal with police reports, medical reports, and insurance companies.

If you or someone you know have been involved in a pedestrian accident, hiring an experienced lawyer is critical because:

  • A prompt investigation of the accident should be conducted.
  • Relevant evidence can be easily lost and this may affect your claim.
  • Witnesses may leave.
  • Someone needs to know how to deal with insurance companies, otherwise you can end up receiving an insufficient settlement amount due to an unfairly assigned percentage of fault for you.

Just like in other accidents, it is recommended to hire a personal injury lawyer with considerable experience, right from the start, who will conduct the investigation of the accident, will deal with the paperwork and settle with the insurance companies.
