What makes for a successful pedestrian accident claim?

Not all mammals are cows, but all cows are mammals. Likewise, no two accidents are alike, but certain elements are common to all accidents. And success in holding the at-fault party accountable for the damages and injuries caused involves putting together the facts of what happened in any given accident in the context of those elements.

This isn't something that most individuals are equipped to do or have the skills to complete. Unlike buying a mix off the shelf and whipping up a 13x9 cake, the recipe for a successful accident claim is more like creating something from scratch. There are a lot of ingredients. And knowing what they are and when to mix them together is something that comes with experience.

For example, in an auto-pedestrian accident certain aspects of process need to be addressed quickly. These include performing a thorough investigation of the accident scene, of course, but they also entail making sure that all victims get appropriate assessment of their injuries.

The full cost of losses suffered, including loss of wages and any and the cost of any medical care that might be required needs to be estimated, and then the at-fault party and all insurers need to be held fully to account. The possibility of a need for litigation should be considered in the preparation, as well, in case it's needed to achieve fair recovery.

Success in pursuing a personal injury case is in the attention paid to details and that is a skill that is developed over time. That's why any pedestrian injured as a result of a negligent motor vehicle driver should consult with an attorney with deep experience.
