Frequently Asked Questions
What are some of the common causes of pedestrian accidents?
Generally, pedestrian accidents take place when a motorist engages in reckless or negligent activities, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Failing to stop at an intersection
- Failing to look before turning at a light
- Failing to watch for pedestrians in crosswalks
What should I do immediately after a pedestrian accident?
Prioritize your safety and seek immediate medical attention. Then contact the police to report the incident and gather information from the driver and any witnesses and finally, document the scene, take photographs, and preserve any evidence related to the accident.
Who is liable for my pedestrian accident injuries?
Liability in pedestrian accidents can vary depending on the specific circumstances. Generally, it’s a distracted driver who doesn't take the time to look for pedestrians before entering an intersection.
How can I prove liability in a pedestrian accident?
Proving liability in a pedestrian accident involves gathering evidence such as witness testimonies, surveillance footage, photographs, accident reconstruction analysis, and reviewing the applicable traffic laws and regulations. This evidence is used to demonstrate the driver's negligence or fault in the accident.
What types of compensation can I seek for my pedestrian accident injuries?
Compensation for a claim may include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, physical impairment, disability or disfigurement, and sometimes punitive damages. Our personal injury attorneys can help determine the specific types of compensation applicable to your situation.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a pedestrian accident?
You only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit following a pedestrian accident—three years if you were hit by a motor vehicle. And before you can file, there is preparatory work your attorney will need to complete. Contact Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. as soon as possible following the incident.
Should I accept the insurance company's settlement offer?
It is crucial to consult with a personal injury lawyer before accepting any settlement offer from an insurance company in a pedestrian accident. Insurance companies aim to minimize their payouts, so having legal representation can help ensure you receive a fair settlement that reasonably compensates you for your injuries and losses.
What if the driver who hit me fled the scene?
It is important to report the hit-and-run incident to the police immediately. Even if the police couldn’t find the fleeing driver, our personal injury lawyers can help you navigate the situation from a legal standpoint, including exploring options such as filing an uninsured motorist claim.
What if the driver's insurance company denies my pedestrian accident claim?
Consulting with a personal injury lawyer is crucial if the driver's insurance company denies your pedestrian accident claim. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we’ll assess the denial, evaluate the strength of your case, and help you pursue legal options, such as negotiating with the insurance company or filing a lawsuit if necessary.
