After a Pedestrian Accident Find Out Your Legal Rights from an Attorney
There are several different types of pedestrian accidents where you can be entitled to seek monetary damages against another party. You may have been hit by a motor vehicle while you had the right of way crossing the street in a designated crosswalk. You could have slipped, tripped, and fallen down because a sidewalk was in disrepair. You might have been knocked down by someone riding a bike on the sidewalk and knocked out into traffic where a vehicle ran you over. These are just a few examples of the various accidents than can occur, and which result in bodily injuries.
After a pedestrian accident, the first thing you need to do is seek medical treatment for your injuries. The second thing you should do is contact our law firm, here at Madison Law Group, and schedule a free consultation with an attorney. During you initial meeting, your lawyer will ask you questions about the accident, review any medical, accident and police reports you brought with you, and make an evaluation as to whether you have grounds for filing a case.
Because it costs nothing to obtain a consultation from our pedestrian accident attorney, it is worthwhile to take the small amount of time needed to find out if you have a monetary claim. Often, people do not know they could have a case, and do not take the time to find out. As a result, they are left paying for medical bills and other expenses that otherwise would be the financial responsibly of the person who caused your injuries.
