One minute, you’re out for a pleasant walk in your neighborhood, and the next, a reckless driver is crashing into you. Statistically, the driver is likely to be fine, but you may suffer severe injuries due to being hit by a two-ton vehicle. Even at low speeds, car collisions with pedestrians are disproportionately harmful to the person on foot.
Your problems might not end there. Necessary medical treatment could be expensive, and health insurance may not cover all of it. When you try to get compensation from the car driver’s insurance company, you could face difficulties such as a claim denial or a lowball offer that doesn’t begin to cover all your losses.
When you’re the victim of a reckless driver, you shouldn’t get stuck with the bill for medical costs, lost income, and other damages. However, it can be challenging to convince the insurance company to pay the total value of your claim—or, in some cases, to pay anything at all.
A Duluth pedestrian accident attorney can help negotiate with the insurance carrier to get you the best settlement possible.
Correctly valuing your claim is one of the first steps your attorney will take. Every claim is different, and the exact value will depend on your specific damages, which may include:
You should be wary if the insurance company quickly makes you an offer after your accident. Frequently, people see this as good news, but in many cases, the insurance company is overlooking or ignoring some damages or undervaluing them.
We recommend reviewing your offer with a pedestrian accident lawyer before you sign anything.
This is one of the more common reasons insurance companies reject claims from injured pedestrians.
Often, the driver believes the pedestrian is at fault, and the insurance adjuster will be inclined to believe the driver. If they argue that you were at fault, they have no obligation to pay your claim—but you still have medical bills and other damages.
Here are a few frequent causes of pedestrian accidents and ways the driver and pedestrian might disagree about fault:
In all of these situations, a pedestrian accident attorney can help protect your rights if the driver and/or insurance company claims you did something wrong and caused the collision. We’ll talk to witnesses, canvas the scene, seek out photo or video evidence, and review other electronic evidence like EDR data and smartphone records.
In many of the situations described above, both parties actually contributed to the accident. For instance, you might not have been paying attention when you crossed the road, but the driver might also have been speeding.
When this is the case, you can still collect damages as long as you were less than 50 percent to blame, but you will lose your percentage of fault from the final recovery. Your lawyer will work to build a strong case illustrating that you had little or no responsibility for the collision so that you can get the most fair settlement possible.
No one wants to hear that the driver who hit them is uninsured, but unfortunately, it does happen. The good news is that in many cases, there are still options for recovering your damages, including:

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries.

An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
