|What should I do if I am injured in a pedestrian accident in North Augusta?|
I had a client call me the other day about being run over by a car while crossing in a crosswalk on Richland Avenue in Aiken, South Carolina. He asked what kind of recommendations I had for his case. If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions. I’ll share with you what I told the client.
First of all, get medical treatment and follow your doctor’s orders. Second, do not give any statements to insurance adjusters. Insurance adjusters are trained to get you to say that it was hard to see you, and that the driver’s field of vision was blocked. They’re trained to get favorable information for their case and unfavorable information for your case, then use that to devalue and deny your case. Third, consult with an experienced attorney that has knowledge on automobile and pedestrian cases. That attorney can give guidance as to potential issues dealing with liability and successful recoveries against the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
