DEFINITION

Pedestrian accidents occur when pedestrians are struck by moving vehicles. This can happen in an intersection, parking lot, or along any road or street. The majority of pedestrian accidents are attributed to a driver’s negligence. The vehicle involved could be a car, truck, motorcycle, RV, four-wheeler or scooter.

These accidents typically occur when drivers do not obey the speed limit, fail to stop for pedestrians crossing the street, when a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or when the driver is pre-occupied and not paying attention to the road. Distracted drivers cause many auto accidents and pedestrian accidents every day in the U.S.

YOUR LOVED ONE HAS BEEN INJURED

If someone you care for has been hurt in a pedestrian accident, you are likely thinking about his/her well-being and your family may be facing financial difficulties as well. We wish to assist you and your family as you get through these difficulties and guide you through to recovery as quickly and smoothly as possible. As a personal injury attorney, Humberto Tijerina is fully aware of the challenges when there is an injury in the family. We know this will be a tough road for you and your entire family.

You are not only concerned about the health of your injured family member, but facing medical expenses and lost income, and wondering if your family will be compensated. It is a wise step to seek out the advice of an experienced, proven personal injury attorney in the Brownsville / McAllen Texas area, who will guide you through the process of dealing with insurance companies, and identify all the parties accountable in the pedestrian and vehicle accident that took place.

WHAT THE INSURANCE COMPANIES DO

Insurance companies are businesses with a focus on generating profits from policy sales. Their secondary aim is to keep payouts for claims to a minimum in the interest of retaining their earnings. Thus, their agents work closely with teams of experts and lawyers with the intention of denying claims or successfully reducing the amount paid on an injury claim. The insurance company will attempt to disprove or invalidate various aspects of the accident that took place, in order to reduce the liability of their policyholder.

Even in the case of your own insurance company, they will “whittle away” at your claim and often attempt to convince you into a quick settlement for a lower amount than your pain and injuries may be worth. This is why you want a knowledgeable and skilled personal injury attorney on your side– and especially, an attorney who understands pedestrian injury claims and all laws pertaining to auto accidents and pedestrian accidents. It is not easy for an individual to go through the process on their own and receive a fair and just payout on their claim.
