Accident victims often hesitate to partner with an injury lawyer because they feel they aren’t the suing type. But here is the deal: even though you are suing the individual who caused the accident, any compensation you receive is likely to come not from the person you are suing, but from their insurance company. In fact, this is exactly why people are legally required to obtain insurance – to ensure that people they injury are fairly compensated.
When motorcycle, trailer, or car accidents occur on Baltimore County roadways, drivers and passengers aren’t the only ones to suffer. Unfortunately, pedestrians are also likely to be injured or even sometimes killed in a motor vehicle accident. Fatal pedestrian accidents in Maryland and throughout the country are at their highest today due to negligent driving, left hand turns, inadequate lighting on roads, lack of sidewalks, and unmarked crosswalks. And in light of the fact that insurance companies frequently deny pedestrian claims based on contributory negligence or assumption of risk, filing a lawsuit is often the only way to achieve a just and fair outcome.
A skilled and experienced personal injury attorney can work to ensure that the responsible parties and their insurers are held accountable and that you are compensated for your economic and non-economic damages. These include medical expenses, lost income, decreasing earning capacity, pain and suffering and loss of quality of life.
Remember, if a pedestrian is ever hit by a vehicle, there are steps to safeguard their legal rights. However, seeking medical assistance must be the priority. If possible, they must also collect evidence from the accident site. Call police officials to report the accident and eventually hire an attorney to help recover full and fair, past and future expenses.
