Even though you always expect drivers to be wary of pedestrians walking down the street, this is not always the case. Distracted driving and drunk driving are two of the biggest reasons why pedestrian accidents occur in California. If you have been on the receiving end of this unfortunate scenario, you are probably in the process of selecting a pedestrian accident lawyer.
When selecting a pedestrian accident lawyer, there are a few qualities you should look for. California personal injury attorney Mindy Bish discusses below:
Selecting a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Recently, a young man contacted me about his case. He’d been injured as a pedestrian and he wanted to know who what kind of attorney he should hire for his case. If you are a pedestrian that has been injured, you want to pick an attorney that regularly handles those types of cases. You also want to pick an attorney that is not afraid to go into the court room and try your case.
Quite often, what happens in pedestrian cases is the insurance companies want to find ways to point the finger at the pedestrian and make it their fault. They want to try and minimize your claims and pay as little as possible. It’s very important to get somebody who’s really willing to stand up and fight for you and really fight the injustice that the insurance companies try and force on all of us.
