A Crosswalk Accident Attorney Who Can Fight For You
If you've been injured in Vancouver, call Colin Scott
Crosswalks are designed to make crossing the street safer. But far too often, they are the site of pedestrian accidents that leave people with serious injuries. Recovering financial compensation after these accidents can be complicated. The Scott Law Firm, PLLC fights for the rights of injured pedestrians.
In the state of Washington, vehicles are supposed to stop at crosswalks to allow pedestrians to cross the road. But sometimes, vehicles speed through crosswalks without checking for pedestrians. Other times, drivers are distracted and don't notice pedestrians that are in the crosswalk. Or, a driver may be under the influence of alcohol and have impaired judgment.
The result can be a collision that leaves people seriously hurt or killed. Pedestrians have no protection during an accident. So they can suffer serious injuries. Recovering from these injuries can take months or longer. Some accident victims are left permanently disabled. Pedestrian accident attorney Colin Scott helps the injured recover the compensation they deserve.
Challenges you may face
But recovering financial compensation can be difficult. The driver who caused your crosswalk accident may not admit they were negligent. You may even be blamed for causing the accident. This can put you in the unpleasant position of having to prove it was the driver's negligence that caused the accident.
Insurance companies are supposed to help you when you've been injured in an accident. But their main goal is to protect their profits (which, as a public company, is a duty they owe to their shareholders). To keep their profit margins high, insurance companies often pay as little as possible for claims. They may also blame you for the accident, or they may question the extent of your injuries.
Attorney Colin Scott can help you fight back against these tactics. He can investigate your crosswalk accident to get the facts. This might involve obtaining and reviewing relevant documentation, such as accident reports and medical records. It can also involve identifying and interviewing witnesses who saw what happened. It can also include consulting with one or more experts who are able to piece together the facts and provide opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your case.
