Accidents Happen Every Day
Pedestrians are always afforded the right of way, which means that the driver of the vehicle is almost always at fault. In the state of California, drivers are considered to have the “last clear chance” to prevent an accident – which is why it is not terribly difficult to prove negligence in a pedestrian case. Precluding extremely reckless behavior on the part of the pedestrian and/or extreme weather conditions, the driver will be the negligent party. The real challenge comes from getting what you deserve from the insurance company.
Taking on Insurance Companies
It is common for insurance companies to offer the victims of pedestrian accidents a quick and small settlement. More often than not, the settlement the insurance company offers is a mere fraction of what you deserve. The attorneys at Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan will negotiate and even litigate on your behalf in order to make sure that your medical bills, rehabilitation, and missed work are all more than covered. Do not face a large insurance company without one of us by your side.
Calculating a Fair Settlement
If you are the victim of a pedestrian accident, you are entitled to a settlement that relieves financial stress (either from medical bills, missed work, or both), and just compensation if your accident results in a permanent disability. When an Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan attorney represents you, they will take into consideration the medical incident immediately following your accident, along with your quality of life both before and after the injury. Based on that information, we will fight for the compensation you deserve, which is likely significantly higher than the settlement first offered to you.
