Pedestrian accidents can be devastating, often resulting in significant injuries that lead to long-term consequences. At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, we are here to help if you need an Anaheim pedestrian accident attorney by your side. We have experience handling these complex claims, and our goal is to make sure pedestrian accident victims recover the compensation they are entitled to if their injury was caused by the negligence of another party.
Individuals without much legal assistance may struggle to recover compensation after an Anaheim pedestrian accident occurs. However, when you have a legal advocate on your side, you will have the resources necessary to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.
Your pedestrian accident lawyer, not you, will be responsible for investigating the incident and gathering the evidence necessary to prove liability. They will speak to eyewitnesses, obtain the evidence you may not even know about, and handle all communications with the insurance carriers involved.
Your lawyer will work with trusted medical, financial, and economic experts to ensure that your economic and non-economic damages are adequately calculated, and they will fully prepare to take your case to trial if that is what’s needed.
The team at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo prides itself on pursuing maximum compensation for clients. This means seeking both special and general damages on behalf of pedestrian accident victims in Anaheim.
Regardless of the type of damages, our team is dedicated to pursuing compensation for our clients. We know how important this compensation is to the recovery process, particularly when it comes to ensuring financial stability after an accident.
Paying for a personal injury lawyer in Anaheim is not as difficult as people think. The team at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo is proud to handle these claims on a contingency fee basis. So what does this mean?
First, our team will be responsible for handling any of the upfront costs related to your case. This includes filing fees, the costs of researching and investigating the incident, and the hours put into preparing for the claim. Pedestrian accident victims pay no legal fees until after we successfully recover compensation on their behalf. If we do not win, our clients do not pay. The final legal fees will be calculated based on an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement or jury verdict.
Pedestrian accident victims in Anaheim need to file their claims as soon as possible. The deadlines put in place by insurance carriers could be as quick as a day or two after the incident occurs, and incidents involving other vehicles almost always revolve around insurance settlements. Report the incident to insurance carriers as soon as possible.
The overall personal injury statute of limitations in California is two years from the date the incident occurs. This means that an Anaheim pedestrian accident victim has a two-year window with which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party, and failing to do so likely means they will not be able to recover the compensation they are entitled to.
Many pedestrian accident victims wonder if they have to actually go to a courtroom and present their case in front of a jury to recover compensation. In most situations, this will not happen. Pedestrian accidents are generally resolved between victims and insurance carriers. However, insurance carriers are not always willing to pay a victim the compensation they are entitled to.
In the event the insurance carrier refuses to offer fair compensation, or if they deny the claim, a victim and their attorney may need to file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. Even though this does put the case into the court system, there will still be a significant discovery period and likely continued negotiations. Only if two sides cannot reach an agreement will the case need to go to a jury trial, and the victim will have to go to court.
