There are a startling number of reasons why pedestrian accidents are so harmful to those on foot. Recent statistics show that the average American male weighs 191 pounds, while the average American female weighs 159 pounds. In comparison to the average weight of a car, which is over 4000 pounds, you can easily see why these accidents are so serious.
There are many things you must consider when you have been involved in an accident of any kind. For example, how long will you be sidelined from work? How much of your potential earnings will you lose? And, what about your medical expenses? How will you be able to afford the mounting healthcare costs if you can’t work? If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, these considerations can easily consume your waking hours. In order to wade your way through all the fine details, you’re going to need a team of highly skilled bilingual attorneys to guide the way.
Although your case may seem clear-cut enough to handle on your own, avoid becoming too confident. The legal world is often quite complicated. Everything hinges on a variety of subtle factors that you might otherwise miss without enlisting a skilled legal team. Insurance company adjusters will do everything in their power to make sure that you walk away from your accident with little compensation to show for your suffering. Don’t let them take advantage of you! Always hire a team of experienced lawyers such as The Ward Law Group to get off on the right footing.

Every year, roughly 5,500 people are killed in pedestrian accidents—that equates to nearly 15 people every day!
Believe it or not, the vast majority of these accidents occur because of the negligence of other parties. In fact, the most common causes of pedestrian accidents that result in personal injury include:
Pedestrians, whether walking, jogging, running, or even sitting at a neighborhood cafe, are vulnerable to accidents involving negligent third parties. Because of the sheer force involved in these accidents, and the lack of physical protection to the pedestrian’s person, injuries are exceedingly likely in this type of collision. For example, car-with-pedestrian accidents may result in the following personal injuries:
When you suffer from an injury due to the negligence of another party, you need an experienced personal attorney to help maximize your compensation. With the proper legal assistance, you may be entitled to the following forms of damage recovery:

As with any lawsuit, one of the most important factors affecting how much compensation you will receive is timing. Always, always make sure that you contact an experienced team of legal advisors immediately after an accident if you are able.
You will also want to contact your insurance company as soon as possible to open up a claim. If you desire to sue the negligent party, be sure to check your state’s statute of limitations. Depending on the nature of your case, you may have a limited amount of time to file a claim and receive compensation. Once this time has passed, no matter how clear-cut the case is, you will no longer be entitled to compensation.
Your lawyer will handle communication between you and your insurance company until an acceptable conclusion is reached. While this transpires, you should always make sure to keep a paper trail of your expenses, including all legal bills, medical expenditures, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and much more. Consult with your attorney to sort out all of the crucial details. You will also need to provide your attorney with information that demonstrates the seriousness of all injuries incurred during the accident.
If you are able to contact your attorney immediately after the accident, he or she will likely send investigators to the scene to collect important information. This may include photographic evidence, police reports, and witness testaments. All of these articles will significantly increase your chances of receiving the maximum amount of compensation possible for your claim.
Don’t ever leave your settlement up to the whims of big insurance companies. Remember, adjusters will do everything in their power to ensure that you walk away from your accident empty-handed. To avoid this outcome, recruit the most experienced legal team that you can find. Contact our team of legal advisors today!
