Common Mistakes After a Pedestrian Accident
I’m often asked about some of the most common mistakes people make that are injured as a pedestrian in the Western New York area. Number one, they delay seeking treatment for their injuries. Number two, they don’t follow through with the treatment. Number three, they give a recorded statement to an insurance company.
Number four, they delay getting an attorney. When you delay getting an attorney, evidence isn’t preserved and witness memories fade. Number five, and most importantly, those involved in pedestrian accidents often pick the wrong attorney.
When selecting an attorney for a pedestrian accident, you need to pick an experienced attorney who is comfortable in the courtroom and who is not afraid to take the tough cases to trial.
