Choosing a Pedestrian Accident Attorney
If you’re going to get a pedestrian accident attorney, it’s important that you have somebody who’s experienced in pedestrian accidents. Pedestrian accidents may involve a vehicle hitting you or it may involve a public entity. The traffic signals at that particular intersection where you fell or where you got hit may not be working or maybe there’s something wrong with that intersection. Then, you’ve got to file a claim against the city. It can get a little complicated. It takes expertise.
Emotional Distress from a Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents can be very, very tragic. They happen so suddenly. You’ve got a green light to walk in the crosswalk, and then somebody runs into you and you don’t see it coming. Next thing you know, you’re lying on the ground. These types of cases can be very unnerving because you don’t know what to do. I’ve had several cases where my clients were run over as a pedestrian. It took them a while to figure out what happened.
Pedestrian Hit and Run Accident
If you’re injured with a hit and run and we don’t know who the other party is, we have to investigate to see if there are any cameras in the area, if there are any witnesses in the area, and we need to locate the person at fault. That’s even more reason why you need to hire me as your lawyer. I’ve been there, I’ve done it, and I know what direction we need to go to find out where the responsible person is and where your compensation is going to come from.
Partial Fault Pedestrian Accident
In a pedestrian type crash incident, there are certain items that I focus on. Initially, they might say it was your fault because you were in the crosswalk against a red light, the traffic signal. That’s where my expert experience comes in where I can figure out what the signals were,, what the witnesses and video show, and I’ll be able to – a lot of times, turn the tide. The tide is against you in terms of you getting blamed, and I will turn it around and show that it wasn’t your fault. It was somebody else’s fault.
