Pedestrian Accident Claims
Are you suffering after being hit by a car while walking, running, or jogging? Watch this video to learn about filing pedestrian accident injury claims in Pennsylvania.
What can I do if I was hit by a car as a pedestrian?
If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian in a car crash in Pennsylvania, it’s important to keep in mind that it differs from a regular car crash in several ways. First and foremost is that you won’t be bound by the Limited Tort rule because, as a pedestrian, there’s an exception for that. The second thing is that the insurance companies treat these claims more seriously.
They are aware that as a pedestrian, you don’t have the protections as a passenger in a car. You do not have a seat belt and there’s nothing around you to protect you from the impact. As a pedestrian, the slightest of impact can cause the most serious of injuries. The insurance companies know that and they take these claims more seriously.
It’s important to hire the right attorney. Make sure that the attorney is a personal injury that will prepare your case for trial from the outset. Make sure that he or she is seasoned as a personal injury lawyer and that he or she has handled these cases in the past.
