        Pedestrian Accident Claim Process

        When you are bringing a claim for a pedestrian accident, there are a lot of things to think about. Chances are this is all new to you and you have never had to file a civil claim for personal injury before. We understand if you are feeling confused. Calling a lawyer like our Virginia pedestrian accident lawyers can help you get a better understanding of these cases and what to expect. Here is a breakdown of how these cases typically look:

        First off, let’s look at what a pedestrian case might be. Let’s say someone was walking home from school and they were crossing an intersection during a red light. A driver who should have stopped for the red light was distracted by their cell phone, ran through the red light, and crashed into this pedestrian, who then needed surgery and physical therapy for months following this accident.

        If this pedestrian were to bring a case against the driver who was on their cell phone, the driver would not be the one financially on the hook for the compensation award this pedestrian is fighting to get. The driver’s insurance company is going to be financially responsible because their insured was directly responsible for hitting this pedestrian. Our Virginia pedestrian accident lawyers will negotiate with the insurance company to ensure that the compensation award is fair.

        If you are thinking about bringing a claim, please get in contact with us as soon as you possibly can. In Virginia, you only have two years following an accident to bring a case against the liable party. We urge you not to wait to reach out to us as your evidence can disappear, making it harder for us to prevent mistakes that could ruin your case and your chance to get justice. Call to set up a free consultation with us today.

        What to Do After the Accident

        Personal injury cases can be very challenging. They can be challenging for you as the injured party and for your Virginia pedestrian accident lawyers who are fighting against harsh fault rules to give you the justice that you are entitled to. Yet we will fight hard to give you what you deserve.

        The very first thing that needs to happen after you’ve gotten your medical treatment under way is you need to reach out to Virginia pedestrian accident lawyers to get a free consultation. You need to understand what has to happen in order for you to get justice. Our lawyers are going to have up-to-date knowledge about state and federal laws with regards to your pedestrian accident cases. Not only are you going to be able to rely on your lawyer to give you current information about your case, you are also going to be having someone who is fiercely defend your rights on your behalf and who has gone through these types of cases before.

        It’s very common for our clients to be going through a personal injury case for the very first time. Not many people have been injured before and needed a lawyer to receive justice. We would never think it fair for the victim of an accident to also have to be a legal advocate for themselves. Hiring a lawyer is going to make this process easier.

        We hope that once you have gone to an urgent care facility or an emergency room and received immediate medical attention that you reach out to our Virginia pedestrian accident lawyers. We need to know what your maximum medical recovery is going to be. Getting that immediate response from a doctor will help you address your health issues before they get more serious and will also help us better understand the damages you are suffering because of the negligence of the liable party.

        If you were to wait to receive medical care, the most obvious consequence of that is having your injuries become worse and potentially causing permanent damage because you didn’t seek immediate medical attention. You might be dealing with issues that turn into bigger health problems that cannot be solved, which would be disastrous for you and your recovery.

        On top of the damage to your health, the insurance company is going to be out for blood the second you file your case. If you didn’t seek immediate medical attention and they know, that slight mistake can ruin your case and they will take advantage of this information. They can say that you couldn’t have possibly been as hurt as you say you were if you waited to see a doctor which would allow them to declare your case value to be far less than what it should be. In addition to this, they could claim that this injury came from some other accident that doesn’t involve their insured. That would allow them to throw out your case altogether and leave you without justice— all for an easily avoidable mistake that could have been remedied by going to the ER right away.

        Pedestrian Accident Claim Damages

        When determining compensation for a personal injury case such as a pedestrian accident, we look into two factors of damages for you. The first is called economic damages and the second are your non-economic damages.

        Your economic damages are all of the ways in which you had financial losses due to your involvement in this pedestrian accident. Any medical bills or ambulance bills are included, as well as your lost wages from having to miss work to heal from your injuries. If you needed physical therapy, surgery, or extensive follow up medical care, then these are also included in your economic damages. Economic damages essentially cover any financial loss related to your pedestrian accident case.

        Your non-economic damages are all the ways in which being involved in this pedestrian accident has negatively impacted your life physically, mentally, and emotionally. These types of changes to your life can result in reduced quality of life, and non-economic damages are there to make up for this. We understand that you can’t put a cost on not being able to play with your children because you are to hurt or not being able to walk your dog because of your injuries but we work our hardest to make sure that your non-economic damages are included in your compensation award in the fullest and fairest amount.

        While it can be simple to calculate your economic damages because we can see your paychecks and your medical bills, it can be quite difficult to calculate your non-economic damages because there is no set cost to losing out on your enjoyment of life. Pedestrian accidents can be devastating and we want to be there for you to support you through your case and make sure you get justice. Our Virginia pedestrian accident lawyers are here to take your call to set up your free, first consultation with us as soon as possible.

        Mistakes to Avoid 

        There are mistakes that people often make after they’re involved in a pedestrian accident that we sincerely hope you will not make. In a state where being even 1% at fault for a case can have your compensation award ruined, we hope that you do not speak to the liable party’s insurance company regarding your accident. If you give them answers to questions that allow them to blame you for the accident, there’s not much we can do to fix that.

        Virginia has harsh compensation laws that don’t allow for us to give you compensation, even if you are barely at fault for the accident. Let’s say that you were walking down the street looking at your phone and perhaps you could’ve stepped out of the way of the vehicle that was speeding and blowing a red light. If the insurance company is able to blame you for the accident in even the smallest way, then you are no longer eligible to receive justice for your case. Don’t let the insurance company get any answers out of you for their own profit. If they can reduce your claim to nothing, then they will save themselves money and rob you of your justice.

        “I had a minor but bothersome issue on a litigation, and Nova Legal Group were extremely efficient, very effective and I am 100% pleased with the results they drove, and I am also quite impressed they managed to do my work and obtain the favorable resolution ahead of schedule during the year of COVID. And I think their fee structure is easy to work with and very reasonable.”
