What to look for in a Long Island Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

by William Mattar | April 3rd, 2019

When you read about traffic accidents, you will find information for motorcyclists, auto and truck drivers, and even bicyclists. But there is not always readily available information on pedestrians involved in traffic accidents. If you were involved in a traffic accident as a pedestrian, then finding a good lawyer might be the only way you can get compensation for your injuries. That is why it is important to know what to look for in a pedestrian accident lawyer.

Experience

When you talk to personal injury attorneys about your pedestrian incident, be sure to ask about the experience those attorneys have with pedestrian accidents. Not every personal injury lawyer has a history of successfully representing pedestrians in traffic accidents. It can take experience to win these types of cases.

Genuine Compassion

Most motorists can see an accident coming before it happens. Most pedestrians are innocent bystanders who are suddenly involved in an accident. Many people involved in pedestrian accidents have never been in that situation before and have no idea where to turn or what to do. You want an attorney who understands your frustration and shows genuine compassion for your situation.

A Plan

An experienced attorney is going to have a plan on how to preserve your rights and get you maximum compensation. If you are unable to get insurance information from the driver who hits you or that driver is not insured, your lawyer will have a plan on accessing funds the state offers for such situations. As you talk to different lawyers, as each one what their plan is for representing you and go with the lawyer who has the best plan.

Time

If you choose a busy attorney, your injury claim can take a long time to complete. You want to find an attorney that is going to have the time to put your case together, do the necessary research, and get results.
