Pedestrian Accident Recorded Statement
If you’re a pedestrian in the state of Arizona and you were hit by a car, the car insurance company will call you and ask you for a recorded statement. I’m asked regularly, “Do I have to give that recorded statement?” I generally tell people I would not give a recorded statement without talking to an attorney first. The reason I say that is because the insurance companies have people taking those recorded statements who are trained to get information that helps their case and hurts your case.
Pedestrian Accident Case Going to Trial
If you’re a pedestrian who has been injured in the state of Arizona, you probably want to know how quickly your case can be resolved, and whether you’ll have to be one of the cases that goes to trial. That’s a question that’s going to be determined by what the insurance company does and if they make fair offers. We will do everything we can to get them the information they need so that they can make a fair offer. If they refuse to make a fair offer, your case could be one that has to go to trial in order to get you fully compensated.
Pedestrian Accident Settlement Timeline
If someone has been involved in a pedestrian accident in the state of Arizona, they’ll always ask how long it is going to take to get their case resolved. I have a hard time giving an answer to that initially. We have to work through a little bit of a process to see what the injuries are, and what the impact of those injuries are. You need to spend some time with the medical doctors and get the treatment you need and see if that’s working, and what the limitations are going to be. Once we have a good understanding of that, we can get a demand to the insurance company to try to resolve the case fairly. If they come back and make a fair offer or want to resolve the case in a fair manner, we can get it resolved. If they won’t make that kind of an offer and they want to give something that’s not fair, it’s going to take more time to get the case resolved.
