Two Lawyers Discussing Legal Matters with Focused Attention

If you have questions, Herschensohn Law has answers. That’s why we offer free consultations to potential clients wanting to learn more about their next steps. During our conversation, we can discuss how our team:

  • Investigates auto accident cases
  • Negotiates with insurance companies
  • Calculates your losses
  • Pursues damages
  • Keeps you updated on your case’s progression
  • Manages all claim-related communications

We can also talk about how our team operates on a contingency-fee-basis. In this arrangement, you pay nothing out of pocket for our services. We finance your case’s obligations, and we withdraw our attorney’s fees from your settlement.

We Manage Your Pedestrian Accident Case’s Deadlines

The law outlines how long you have to file a lawsuit. RCW § 4.16.080 states that you generally have three years from the accident date to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Once these three years have passed, you could be unable to pursue damages through the civil court system.

Our attorneys can keep your case on track and ensure you don’t miss any relevant deadlines. Once you contact our team, we can get started on your case immediately. This allows us to gather time-sensitive evidence and advocate for what you deserve.

We Can Learn the Cause of Your Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrian accidents happen across the Seattle area for various reasons. We can use the police report, photos of the accident scene, and eyewitness testimony to learn what happened.

One or more of the following contributors could have caused your accident:

  • Poorly marked crosswalks
  • Malfunctioning traffic lights
  • A driver’s negligence, which may include speeding, distracted driving, or inattention
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Defective roadways
  • A vehicular malfunction

Regardless of how your pedestrian accident happened, we can seek compensation from the responsible party.

Damages You Could Recover After a Seattle Pedestrian Accident

The amount of compensation you could recover from a pedestrian accident varies from case to case. Many factors influence how much you can recover. These factors include the severity of your injuries and the impacts they have on your life.

Compensation You Could Recover After Your Collision

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you could recover:

  • Medical expenses: You can recover the medical expenses associated with treating your condition. Compensable medical expenses comprise dental work, bone-setting, surgeries, and other procedures.
  • Lost income: You can recoup lost income if your injuries prevented you from working. These damages could also include projected future lost earnings if you cannot return to work immediately.
  • Rehabilitative treatments: To increase your mobility and independence after an accident, your treatment plan could include rehabilitative therapy, such as physical or occupational therapy. Your settlement could cover these treatments.
  • In-home nursing care: If you have severe injuries, you could require an in-home nurse. They can take care of your daily medical needs, and your settlement can take care of paying them.
  • Pain and suffering: You could experience intense physical pain or anguish after suffering injuries in a pedestrian accident. How much you can recover for this hardship depends on your situation, including the severity of your condition.
  • Emotional distress: After a pedestrian accident, you could suffer from psychological issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety. You could seek compensation for these issues.

You could recover other losses than those listed here. For instance, if you spent money on temporary transportation arrangements and childcare costs, you could recoup those expenses.

Three Steps in the Aftermath of Your Pedestrian Accident Case

In the aftermath of your pedestrian accident, you may consider:

  • Seeking medical attention. We want you to make a full recovery. Visiting a healthcare provider does that. We also need medical documentation to support your claim. This information includes your x-rays and diagnosis.
  • Writing down your version of events. Your testimony matters. We encourage you to write down what you remember happening before, during, and after the collision. Even the smallest detail could bolster your case.
  • Referring all insurance-related communications to your lawyer. You shouldn’t have to answer a single phone call from the liable insurance company. Instead, let our team handle it.
