Compensation as a victim of pedestrian accidents

A majority of accidents today occur as pedestrian accidents. Walking on the road brings a handful of risks of accidents and injury and makes pedestrians vulnerable to vehicles and mass transit traffic like buses and trains. The main reasons for the accidents are distracted drivers, improper turns at the intersection with crosswalks, drunken driving, improperly timed traffic and walk signals, etc. 

Why does one need an attorney and its charges?

There is no assistance of any attorney or anyone required while filing an insurance claim or claim for personal injury in civil court. It is a legal right of a person to represent himself in the civil court. However, more often than not, there is a better chance of winning the case if one has a skilled pedestrian injury lawyer on their side. 

There may be a doubt in the minds of the injured regarding the cost of legal representation, often the exorbitant hourly fees being the reason for failing to contact an attorney.

Also, anyone can afford a lawyer as they charge on a contingency fee basis, which means that one doesn’t have to pay any fee or charge until the case has been won.
