Las Vegas Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Did you know that a pedestrian was killed every two hours in the United States in 2012, so think about the numbers for this globally.
Meanwhile, pedestrians were hurt every 7 minutes that same year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
So whether you’re someone who spends a lot of time walking around your neighborhood, you enjoy jogging for exercise, or you’re one of the people who take transit or walk to work, you could be at risk of injury or death in a pedestrian accident.
It’s never something people want to think about, but it does happen.
So what will you do if it happens to you?
Unlike accidents that involve your car or motorcycle, chances are that you, as the pedestrian, won’t be represented by an insurance company should you be the victim of a pedestrian accident. You’ll probably be contacted by the driver’s insurance company, and you might receive a settlement offer from that company – but far too often, that settlement is way less than you deserve.
How can Donn W. Prokopius, Chtd. help?
We take pride in being the advocate for pedestrians involved in injury accidents or fatalities. If you’ve been a pedestrian involved in an accident – or one of your loved ones has been injured or killed as a pedestrian – it’s important to know that you don’t have to take the first settlement you’re offered.
Think about it for a minute! That settlement might seem like a good deal of money – but is it going to be enough to cover all the medical bills related to the accident? And what about the long-term recovery costs? If you miss work, that’s going to cost you money. If you need ongoing chiropractic care or physical therapy as the result of being hit by a vehicle, is the settlement you’re getting going to cover that?
It’s a lot to think about, and that’s why we’re here!
Donn W. Prokopius, Chtd. has many years of experience advocating for pedestrians who have been hurt in accidents involving motor vehicles. We care about getting you the settlement you deserve, so that you can get back to work and back to your full mobility. If a loved one has been killed in a pedestrian accident, we want you to get a settlement that helps you cover the costs of lost income, funeral expenses and more.
Insurance companies, on the other hand, only care about maximizing profits for their shareholders – even when that’s at the expense of your full recovery.
If you’ve or your loved ones have been involved in a pedestrian accident, think twice before you accept that settlement!
Your first priority is to ensure that you get the immediate medical care you need, and that your loved ones know you’re safe.
The second priority is to secure an attorney who can advocate for you from the investigation phase, all the way to a trial if need be.
