Why Should I Hire a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?
Trying to find a lawyer can be time-consuming and positive results are not guaranteed so many approach the prospect of hiring a lawyer with understandable wariness. Why not simply file a claim with the insurance company on your own and save some money by foregoing hiring a lawyer? In rare cases, this may be the right course to take. If you were lucky and your pedestrian accident only inflicted very minor injuries then hiring a lawyer may not be necessary since your damages are low enough that hiring a lawyer would essentially be overkill.
Pedestrian Accidents Require More Compensation and Are Fought Harder
Most pedestrian accidents inflict injuries that do permanent damage which means a much higher value case that will be harder to get the full value in compensation. High-value cases are much more difficult since the insurance company stands to lose more money and therefore will work harder to limit the amount they payout.
Insurance Companies Exploit Lawyerless Claimants
Taking on the insurance company on your own in your pedestrian accident case is a good way to have the amount of compensation you could potentially get significantly reduced or get your claim to compensation denied altogether. The reason for this is simple. Insurance companies will have you outgunned in almost every way. They have more experience, resources, knowledge, etc. that can be used to take advantage of you so that they can keep the money you need to cover pedestrian accident damages in their pockets.
Trying to handle your pedestrian accident case on your own gives them the advantage and they know how to exploit this to the fullest. For example, insurance companies have all kinds of tricks they like to use to get claimants to make mistakes that can ruin their case. They may ask for a recorded statement or ask loaded questions to try and get you to accidentally admit fault even if their client is entirely responsible for your injuries. They might also try to pitch you a lowball settlement available right away to trick you into accepting much less than what your case is actually worth.
