Pedestrian Accidents in Seattle

As a pedestrian, one usually feels safe walking the Seattle streets. Unfortunately, there are various types of accidents that can occur including while walking, including tripping, slip & fall, or even being hit by a vehicle. Any of these pedestrian accidents can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Head injuries can be a particularly serious result of a pedestrian accident. If you or a loved one has had such an accident, it is strongly urged that you contact our firm. Your case can be reviewed to determine if a personal injury suit is possible. The Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC would like to hear from you about the details of your case.

Fighting Against Insurance Bad Faith

Each case is unique, and Attorney Smith take the time to thoroughly review the details of your accident and all the information surrounding the event. With this thorough review, it can be determined if a lawsuit is a possible solution. In many pedestrian accidents, a settlement will be offered by the insurance company. This settlement may be offered to you directly, even over the phone. It is crucial that you don’t accept any offer, either in person or over the phone without contacting an attorney at the Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC, as insurance companies are notorious for “low-balling” settlements with unsuspecting individuals.

The victim then ends up with a much lower amount than they would have received with experienced legal help. When you or your loved one has sustained an injury in a pedestrian accident, most of the focus is on the recovery of the injured person, which is as it should be. However, there is the claim aspect that needs to be addressed and it can be quite complex. A full investigation may be necessary, and the entire incident must be carefully documented. Any of the evidence collected by law enforcement must also be reviewed. This process, as well as the insurance claim, can all be handled for you by an attorney at the Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC.
