Close to 90,000 people are seriously injured in pedestrian related traffic accidents each year. Nearly 6,000 of those injured will die as a result of their injuries. Pedestrian accidents caused by a negligent or careless driver are a severe risk to the public. These types of accidents have caused millions of dollars in medical damages. Lorraine Gingery can help you with your claim- be it caused by drunk driver, simple negligence, or other type of accident. She understands bicycle and pedestrian accidents can be much more serious and that confusion and inattention are the two main reasons that these types of accidents take place. Statistics show us that many of these accident victims are smaller children and the elderly.
Be aware that the driver's insurance company lawyers may even try to blame YOU for your injuries by claiming that YOUR negligence caused the accident. Be sure that the negligent parties are held responsible for medical and other financial damages related to your accident.
If you have involved in a pedestrian accident, DO NOT give a statement to the insurance company until you have spoken with an attorney. Seek medical attention right away and follow your doctor's instructions. This is imperative as your health should be your number one concern. Another consideration, however, is that insurance industry adjusters frequently claim that if you didn’t seek treatment, for ANY reason, you must not have been hurt. Please do not let a lack of health insurance coverage keep you from seeking treatment. Call and ask me how I can help with your personal injury claim.
When a pedestrian is involved in an accident, there are so many variable to consider. The hospital bills can be enormous, simply because of the types of injuries one sustains when struck by an oncoming vehicle. Catastrophic type injuries are not uncommon in such cases.
