Question:

How do I choose the best attorney for my pedestrian accident claim?

Answer:

You may be wondering, “How do I choose the best pedestrian accident attorney?” First, you have to establish a level of trust and comfort with that attorney, and you should be able to do that in the first meeting, whether it be over the phone or in-person. Next, you need to hire someone who has experience in pedestrian accidents and not just personal injury law. Pedestrian accidents are different than a car wreck, and if someone doesn’t have that experience, they may not know how to avoid some of the unique pitfalls in those cases.

Lastly, you need to hire someone who is a trial attorney. Trial attorneys work cases differently and insurance companies take notice. Insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are, and they treat them more fairly, and are more likely to put a fair settlement on the table and not force you to go to trial. If, in the rare instance you do have to go to trial, trial attorneys are ready to do that for you.
