Do you automatically receive a settlement if struck by a car?

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident where the moving vehicle struck you while you were walking, then it stands to reason that you would attempt to file a lawsuit against the driver and receive compensation for your injuries. But there is actually no guarantee that you are entitled to a settlement, and often a pedestrian accident lawyer will be needed in order to prove your case and ensure you receive what you deserve.

In the cases of injuries or even unfortunate accidental deaths, such as the recent tragedy in upstate New York where an individual was struck and killed while walking along the shoulder of the road, it is likely that you may be offered a settlement by the driver’s insurance company, but sometimes certain factors related to the accident may cause the insurance company to deny you a settlement. Regardless of whether you have been offered a settlement or not, it would be wise to contact a pedestrian accident lawyer in NYC.

After consulting with an experienced NYC pedestrian accident lawyer, the attorney can launch a full investigation of the accident, as well as help you receive proper medical treatment and testing to see if your injuries will cause you issues in the future or require ongoing treatment. Additionally, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and other monetary losses incurred as a result of the accident. Don’t take a chance on missing out on what you deserve—contact a NYC pedestrian accident lawyer today.
