Holding the Negligent Party Accountable
One of the biggest fears a pedestrian accident victims and their families face is how to pay for mounting medical bills, such as those associated with a head injury.
In the case of a pedestrian accident caused by a negligent motorist, the driver’s auto insurance is primarily responsible for covering your medical expenses. However, insurance companies do not necessarily have your best interests in mind when offering a settlement amount. If you are dissatisfied with their compensation offer, having a knowledgeable attorney on your side can prove very beneficial during the negotiation process.
