Have You Been Injured in a Pedestrian Accident?
Being struck by a vehicle, large or small, traveling slowly or fast is going to cause injury. The extent of your injury is best determined by a thorough examination from competent medical personnel. This is the first thing you should do after an accident. Injuries are not always visible and do not always manifest themselves immediately. Finding the injury is the first step toward remedying it.
After you have received competent medical treatment for any wounds, broken bones or serious injuries, you should immediately contact a Longview personal injury attorney. The attorneys at Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher, Perry, Runge, Robertson and Smith Law Firm understand exactly the difficult road you are facing. We know that you are probably experiencing financial stress not only from escalating medical bills, but also from the loss of wages due to the inability to work. This stress can actually prolong your recovery.
Pedestrian accidents are frequently caused by a negligent driver who did not see the victim. If you suspect that this is the case for you or a loved one, then immediate action is necessary to investigate and gather evidence. Our lawyers and investigative/support personnel are experienced with pedestrian accidents. We know how to proceed to determine fault and/or negligence. We understand the laws designed to protect pedestrians from dangerous drivers.
There are statutes of limitation that determine how long you have to file a lawsuit. If you do not file your suit during that time, you lose the right to sue for that accident and recover any financial compensation for your injuries or loss. Don’t delay in contacting us.
