San Mateo Woman Nearly Dies from Pedestrian Accident – 5-24-13


San Mateo Woman Nearly Dies from Pedestrian Accident – 5-24-13Sadly it was reported today that a 67 year old woman in San Mateo California suffered from life threatening injuries after being hit by a van. Pedestrian accidents are some of the most serious types of accidents. While drugs and or alcohol were not a factor in the accident, the injured party is still able to pursue a claim for damages. In pedestrian accident claims injured parties can suffer from significant injuries to the body. If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident make sure you know your rights.

Speaking to Insurance Companies

After an accident insurance companies will try and contact you to collect info as to what happened. Regardless of fault it is important to never make any statements to the insurance companies. Why? Because these statements are usually recorded and will be used in some manner to deny your claim. If you were involved in a pedestrian accident it is important to remember that you are not required by law to make such statements. Even though insurance companies will attempt to manipulate this fact, it is not a requirement in California for you to make such statements. It is always in your best interest to refuse to make such statements. Always allow the insurance company to make an independent investigation. If a police report was filed it is likely that it will include the name of the driver and the proper insurance information.

Recovery for Medical Expenses

Medical expenses are the responsibility of the at fault party. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident you will likely have a number of medical bills to consider. These bills are all the financial responsibility of the party who was at fault. However, in many cases they may deny your claim. If you have been injured make sure that you seek medical treatment for all of your injuries. Never allow your injuries to go unattended. In certain cases clients may not have the financial resources to obtain proper medical treatment. Ask your attorney if they can connect you to their own network of physicians. Many law firms worth with physicians on medical liens. This will allow you to seek recovery without having to worry about paying upfront medical bills. Speaking to an Attorney: It is always advisable that you speak with a pedestrian accident attorney about your case. Your attorney can advise you on what needs to be done to help maximize the value of your case. Never speak with the insurance company before speaking with an attorney first.
