1. How long will it take to resolve my Augusta pedestrian accident claim?

I had a client call me recently who was hit by a bus crossing Broad Street in Augusta, Georgia. One of the questions the client asked me was how long the case would take to be resolved. If you are reading this, you may have the same question.

There are many different variables in how long it will take for a case to be resolved. Some of the variables include how long it takes to finish treatment and whether the at-fault driver is taking responsibility for the injuries. Another important factor in the prompt resolution of a claim is how reasonable the insurance company for the motor vehicle driver is acting. If they’re unreasonable, then a trial lawyer can attempt to make them act reasonable by aggressively and vigorously prosecuting the case.

If you have questions about your pedestrian accident case, give me a call. We’d be happy to talk with you.

2. Should I speak to an insurance company after a pedestrian accident?

I had a client call me who was recently injured as a pedestrian on Washington Road.  It was a day after the accident and the insurance company for the driver was already asking to take his recorded statement. If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may be wondering if you should talk to the insurance company. I advised that client and I advise you to never give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions and receive answers that are favorable to their case. They will use that information to devalue your case and not pay you the proper amount of money for your damages.

3. What should I do if I was injured in a pedestrian accident in Augusta?

I had a client that was hit by an automobile as a pedestrian on Walton Way, close to the VA Hospital. That client asked me if the car or the pedestrian has the right of way. If you’re reading this, you may have that same question.

In Georgia, if a client is in a proper crossing, they have the right of way and a driver must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. Many times, car drivers argue that the pedestrian suddenly appeared or they darted in front of the car. That’s why it’s important to hire a car accident lawyer as soon as possible so they can help you prosecute your case for your injuries.
