Pedestrian Injuries

Thousands of people are killed in traffic accidents and a larger number are injured in traffic accidents. Frequently children are the victims in these accidents. Pedestrian accidents involving children frequently need an expert to reconstruct the accident and an experienced lawyer is needed to properly prepare this type of case. Medical doctors and experts are also needed in a case involving a serious injuries.

Pedestrian accidents require the injured person to file a claim against the driver’s insurance company within 30 days to receive payment for medical bills. This requires the pedestrian to immediately obtain a police report of the accident, which has the driver’s insurance information. If the paperwork is received by the insurance company in 31 days, it will be considered late and will be rejected and the pedestrian will be responsible for all the medical bills and loss of wages. It is therefore crucial to have an attorney immediately assist you with this paperwork.
