Elverta Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Recent data from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) shows that pedestrian deaths in California are one of the highest in the United States, with nearly 25% greater than the national average.

Elverta is no different than any other city in California. As a census-designated place in Sacramento County, it is part of the busy Sacramento metropolitan area. This means residents and guests visiting that area can likely suffer serious injuries in a pedestrian accident.

Most of these accidents are caused by drunk driving, distracted driving, and other types of driver negligence. If you or a family member was injured in an accident while crossing the street, contact AutoAccident.com for a free consultation with one of our experienced Elverta pedestrian accident attorneys.

The evidence needed to prove liability depends on the unique circumstances of your accident. You may be entitled to pursue a claim against the driver who hit you, a government entity, or another party.

With nearly 40 years of experience in settlement negotiations and litigation, our Elverta pedestrian accident lawyers know what it takes to successfully negotiate with difficult insurance companies.

What to Do Following a Pedestrian Accident

It may be challenging to have a clear head after being hit by a motor vehicle. However, what you do and say immediately after your pedestrian accident can affect the outcome of your potential case. Below are some tips that may help you avoid disputes with the other party's insurance company and lead to a fair settlement offer. If you are able, make sure you:

  • Call the police and request an accident report.
  • Take pictures of your injuries, the vehicle that hit you, and the road and weather conditions.
  • Get phone numbers and the names of any eyewitnesses.
  • See a doctor immediately for a medical evaluation.
  • Follow your doctor's medical treatment instructions.
  • Do not speak to the other party's insurance company until you have talked to an attorney.
  • Contact a pedestrian accident lawyer right away to discuss your case
  • Keep a journal about your injuries and recovery process.
  • Stay off all social media platforms until your case is settled.
Why Do I Need a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

The injuries you suffer in a pedestrian accident can be devastating, and the cost of medical treatment can be excessively high. The other party's insurance adjuster will try to coerce you into providing a recorded statement that can be used to dispute liability. They may also review your social media profiles for posts that can be used against you.

An experienced Elverta pedestrian accident lawyer will help you stay one step ahead and avoid mistakes that can jeopardize your case. Our legal team will conduct our own investigation, negotiate with the insurance carrier, calculate your damages and losses, and take your case to court if necessary.
