How A Lawyer Can Help A Pedestrian Sue After Getting Hit By A Car

Did you suffer a serious injury after getting hit by a driver that was riding through your neighborhood? If the traumatizing experience and severity of the injury has changed your life in a dramatic way, hiring a personal injury lawyer is the wisest thing that you can do to get justice. Find out in this article what will take place as a lawyer works on your case to help you receive compensation from the other party.

Assessing the Day of the Incident

Although you are the victim and pedestrian in the case, your lawyer will have to assess what took place on the day of the incident. He or she will need details in order to rule out the possibility of the other party being able to say that you caused him or her to hit you. For instance, if you walked in front of the vehicle before it was possible for the driver to slow down, you might be in the wrong. The lawyer will investigate the scene of the incident to observe the speed limit, as well as come up with a few different scenarios that might have led to the collision in case your lawsuit is contested. He or she will also find out if the other driver was speeding or not paying attention when you were struck.

Determining What You Deserve

If your lawyer determines that you deserve compensation because you are truly in the right, he or she will then figure out how much money you should sue for. You must explain how the incident drastically changed your life. For instance, if you are no longer able to work and support your family, make sure that the lawyer is aware of it. You must give your lawyer your medical bills, pay stubs, receipts for handicap accessible equipment, and documentation that shows how you are being treated. Keep in mind that undergoing counseling should also be regarded as a medical expense as it involves your mental health.

Attempting to Settle the Case Out of Court

Before moving forward with handling your lawsuit in court, your lawyer will attempt to settle the dispute via mediation to speed the process up. He or she will first speak to the other party to see if an agreement can be reached for handling the dispute through mediation. If the other party is unwilling to cooperate, the dispute will go to court to let a judge decide on the outcome. Make an appointment to consult with a local personal injury lawyer like those found at Walz Law Office as soon as you are able to.
