Question:

What mistakes should I avoid after a pedestrian accident?

Answer:

I was contacted the other day by a client who wanted to know what some of the common mistakes were that should be avoided after being injured in a pedestrian accident. I explained that one of the most common mistakes is failing to immediately obtain medical treatment. Mistakes to Avoid After a Pedestrian Accident You want to ensure that you immediately seek medical attention so that later on an insurance company on the other side cannot say that you weren’t actually injured in this incident. Another common mistake is people stopping treatment before it’s finished. Again, you want to ensure that you continue treating your injuries on a consistent basis and do not have any gaps in treatment because that might signify to the other side that your injuries are not as severe as they actually are.
Another mistake that people make is they don’t retain a trial firm. They might retain somebody who handles other types of claims on a regular basis, or works in a different area of law altogether, and those people are not properly equipped and do not have the proper experience to handle the claim, investigate it and, again, take it all the way through trial if necessary.
