What are common mistakes after being injured in a pedestrian accident?
If you’re watching the news at night and you hear of a pedestrian-related accident, the first thing you think is, “Oh, my, that bad driver.” That’s a common mistake that people make with regards to pedestrian accidents. They assume that it’s obvious that they’re not at fault because they’re a pedestrian, so they start saying too much, posting things on social media, and acting like it’s a slam dunk case. A lot of times, it’s not a slam dunk case.
The other side and their insurance company are going to find a million and ten ways why you, the pedestrian, is at fault or the reason why this vehicle ran into you. We see this mistake quite often in our experience in litigating these cases. Be careful not to run to social media and post too much. Be careful not to hurry your rehabilitation process. Don’t kick the can down the road, necessarily, but also take as much time as you need to heal. Talk with your attorney about your treatment process so they can keep you updated on time frames and how the case is proceeding.
Don’t rush back to everyday activities too fast. More importantly, don’t give up on your case. Don’t get frustrated along the way. Sometimes the wheels of justice turn slow, but if you have been a victim, an injured party in a pedestrian accident, you’re going to have to go through the process. One of our attorneys will walk through that process with you. Here in the state of Arizona or wherever your case may be, give us a call and we’ll walk you through the process and help you avoid making some of the common mistakes that litigants make.
