It’s normal for pedestrians who have just been injured in an accident to be confused. From insurance companies right down to finding the right medical treatment options, being involved in an accident can be overwhelming. Not only this, trying to fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve can be taxing, especially when managing other accident-related issues.
By working with a team of attorneys, you can focus on making a full recovery while knowing that you’re getting the legal assistance to seek the necessary compensation.
Despite the fact that it’s obvious in most cases, it’s worth going over the definition of a pedestrian. A pedestrian is any person that is walking, using a wheelchair, power wheelchair, or moving by means of a human-propelled vehicle, rather than a motorized vessel.
All pedestrians who are not at fault of the accident have the right to file personal injury claims when involved in an auto collision. If you or a loved are involved in a collision, contact our Spokane Valley pedestrian accident attorneys today.
Unlike motorists, pedestrians have no protection when they are involved in an auto accident. For this reason, they usually suffer severe injuries that can cause immediate and long-term effects. At the same time, this can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars worth of medical expenses and require ongoing treatment.
At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our pedestrian accident attorneys will carry out a full-scale investigation to guarantee you get the medical attention you deserve. We work with doctors and other medical professionals to fully show the extent of the injuries caused in order to paint an accurate picture of the potential expenses.
In many cases, the driver’s insurance policy will include personal injury protection, also known as PIP. This covers injuries to pedestrians or bicyclists involved in auto collisions. Our team of seasoned attorneys has vast experience managing PIP claims as well as bifurcated claims, so we can guide you through the entire process.
One of our goals is to always keep you in the loop, and we work restlessly to make sure you get compensation from the responsible driver’ insurance. Plus, we’ll also explore any additional coverage possibilities whenever they’re available.
What’s more, our team can provide legal advice if any insurance claim disputes were to arise. This includes bad faith insurance claim denials and other scenarios that may merit legal intervention.
Auto collisions usually result in severe injuries for pedestrians. While these may vary in severity, even relatively slow collisions may still result in extensive damage and downtime for those outside of the vehicle. And, accidents that occur at higher speeds tend to cause extensive injuries that take months or years to fully heal.
Some of the most common injuries that come from pedestrian accidents include fractured extremities, lacerations, torn ligaments, internal bleeding, and swollen organs. That said, there are also injuries that may not manifest immediately but still produce negative effects.
Although most people associate the term traumatic brain injury with a cracked skull or a sports injury, their effects may not be immediately noticeable. Auto collisions can cause the brain to shift inside the skull and potentially produce neurological damage.
Traumatic brain injuries can range from concussions to swelling and bleeding inside of the skull. They can also damage the pituitary gland, which is partially responsible for regulating hormones. This, in turn, can cause hormonal imbalances that produce mood disorders and other symptoms.
Pedestrian accidents in Spokane Valley can result in a series of injuries and cost thousands of dollars. At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our team of pedestrian accident attorneys can help you seek full compensation for the injuries and financial damages sustained as a result of a collision.
