How can a personal injury attorney help in a pedestrian accident claim?
Nobody expects a walk to end with a serious accident, but it’s a risk we take every time we go out.
After a car hits you, you’re likely wondering about the next steps to take.
One of the first things you should do after getting medical help is to look for a personal injury attorney who can help with your claim.
It’s normal to wonder what type of settlement you can expect after the accident, but many factors will come into play.
So how can an attorney help?
First of all, they’ll examine your case closely.
They’ll help establish fault proving that you were the victim of negligence.
Next, they’ll identify the various factors that will contribute to your settlement.
Things like medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages from missed work and more will come into play.
Your attorney will also help with negotiations with the insurance company, and even take your case to trial if necessary.
Ultimately, having an attorney on your side will lead to a more appropriate valuation of your case and a more fair settlement for you.
