As a pedestrian, you’re afforded a number of additional rights when compared to drivers, including the right to cross streets at designated crosswalks safely. Unfortunately, many drivers today are painfully unaware of current motor vehicle laws, and this leads to pedestrian accidents. Such accidents then result in injuries, and medical costs involved can reach into the thousands of dollars or more. In addition, pedestrian victims of automobile accidents may find themselves facing weeks, months or even years of recovery, physical pain and mental and emotional trauma.
If You’ve Been a Victim
If you’ve suffered injuries as a pedestrian in a motor vehicle accident, you’re encouraged to seek out the services of a personal injury attorney, such as Eric J. Hertz, of the Hertz Law Firm. Eric J. Hertz and his staff of legal experts represent injured pedestrians all the time, and they can provide you with options for seeking justice and compensation. When you partner with the experts at the Hertz Law Firm, you receive personalized services based upon your specific situation. From your first meeting with Eric J. Hertz and his staff, you will be treated with compassion, respect and dignity, and all options will be provided so that you can make the decisions that are best for your individual needs.
The Legal Process
Legally, injured pedestrians who have been involved in accidents through no fault of their own are able to seek compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately, seeking this compensation on your own can be difficult. The legal process is often complex and confusing, and many injured pedestrians who seek compensation on their own find themselves receiving less than they deserve, or worse, no compensation at all. By partnering with the Hertz Law Firm, injured victims have a team of allies on their side to ensure that they are provided full rights under the justice system.
Lawsuit or Settlement?
It’s important to point out that receiving compensation for injuries as a pedestrian doesn’t always mean filing a lawsuit. In some cases, Eric J. Hertz can negotiate a fair settlement for his injured clients that removes the need for judicial intervention entirely. If the responsible entity is unwilling to negotiate, however, the Hertz Law Firm can bring its entire arsenal of legal resources to bear in order to achieve justice for its clients. During the process of a lawsuit, Eric J. Hertz and his staff will do everything possible to ensure that you can focus on recovering from your injuries rather than the action inside of the courtroom.
Time May Be Running Out
After suffering injuries in an accident as a pedestrian, it’s important to keep in mind that you may only have a limited time to seek compensation. As a result, you are encouraged to contact Eric J. Hertz as soon as possible to receive a free consultation and discuss your case. Once you have reached the decision that’s right for you with the attorneys at the Hertz Law Firm, they will be able to begin investigating your case, meaning faster compensation results for you.
