The Advocates Pedestrian Accident Claim Process
Step 1: Investigate the Accident
The first step your attorney will take in building you a strong injury claim is to investigate your accident. The investigation is one of the most crucial steps in determining liability for your injuries so we can get you the compensation you are owed according to the law. Your attorney will obtain a full police report about your accident, exam any photos or videos of the scene of the crash and speak to any relevant witnesses.
Step 2: Build Your Claim
Once liability is determined, your attorney will begin compiling all the evidence to build you the strongest legal claim possible. Building a successful pedestrian accident claim is a very time-consuming part of the process. The Advocates must wait until you’ve completed all your treatment before we can gather a comprehensive file of your medical records.
Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement
After you’ve finished treatment and we’ve gathered all your medical records, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance company. This demand package will contain all the evidence needed to help get you the compensation you deserve. If we are unable to negotiate an offer you’re comfortable with, then you have the option to litigate your case in court.
Step 4: Litigate Your Case
Filing a lawsuit is considered the longest step in the pedestrian accident claim process. This route can potentially extend the life of your claim for up to several years. If you are unsatisfied with the amount your attorney negotiated, then you can choose this option, but there’s a possibility you may need to appear before a judge and jury in court.
