Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can be the result of many types of negligent actions:
Were You Hit By A Car?
When you are hit by a car as a pedestrian, your benefits come from the insurance company of the person who hit you. The insurance company has two insurance adjusters: one for you and one for the person who hit you.
It's important to make sure that the adjuster who is supposedly looking after your interests does a thorough job. He or she may not have all the information about how the accident has affected your life. The adjuster always needs to know if you have suffered:
All of these may cost you time off work as you recover, as well as medical costs and rehabilitation fees. Some may even cause you permanent disability, which can prevent you from going to work and making a living.
Thorough Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Calgary
After an accident, insurance companies may advise you not to call a lawyer. However, it’s very important that you contact an accident lawyer in Calgary following a pedestrian accident! We are uniquely equipped to help you claim the money or benefits you deserve. Don’t let an insurance company talk you out of claiming your full rights and benefits under the law – remember, the goal of the insurance company is to make money; not spend it. Trying to settle on your own without a specialized knowledge of applicable law in your province can put you at a disadvantage, as you may underestimate the value of your claim. Get a higher settlement by consulting with an accident lawyer.
