1. Pedestrian Accident Attorney Fees

3 Pedestrian Accident FactsIf you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be asking yourself, “How am I going to get back to work? How am I going to pay my medical bills? How am I going to afford an attorney?” The good news is, when you hire us, we pay all the expenses to get the case ready, whether it’s through settlement or through trial, and you don’t owe us anything until we get a successful resolution of your case.

2. Choosing a Pedestrian Accident Attorney

If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident in the state of Arizona, it’s important that you find the right attorney. Doing that can be difficult. You want to look at a couple of different things. You want to make sure that the attorney you hire has the experience to handle the case, has successfully handled those types of cases in the past, and that they focus on that type of personal injury claim.

Also, I would always recommend getting a trial attorney. That’s particularly true with a pedestrian accident. Get somebody who knows how to go to trial, is willing to go to trial, and will let the insurance company know right from the beginning that you are prepared to go to trial if that’s what you have to do to get a fair settlement.

3. After a Pedestrian Accident

If you’re a pedestrian who has been injured in a car crash in the state of Arizona, the first thing you need to do is make sure you take care of your health. Get to the medical providers you need to and do everything you can to get back to full strength as soon as possible. Also, it’s important to get photographs of the scene, the cars involved, and the area where it happened to the extent that’s possible or have somebody else do that for you. One of the other things that you should do is hire an attorney who can assist you with that quickly so that they can track down witnesses, deal with getting photographs, get the electronic data, and make sure that the evidence that’s needed is preserved.

It’s important that you also hire the right attorney to do that. Hire somebody who has dealt with pedestrian crashes, and makes this a regular focus of their practice. I always like to recommend that you get a trial attorney so that if an insurance company wants to go towards litigation, you’ve got an attorney who knows what they’re doing.
