For a San Diego pedestrian who has just been in an accident, it can be a very confusing time. With hospital bills, time off of work, and lawyers from insurance companies calling, most people have no idea what to do or who to turn to. Little do they know that signing something quickly presented by a lawyer from an insurance company could cost them thousands of dollars. But when an accident happens, the pedestrian might be entitled to compensation from the driver—if the victim knows what to do.
The law firm of Farar and Lewis, LLP can help in cases like this. With over 30 years combined experience, the lawyers at Farar and Lewis understand that to many, the legal process surrounding accidents can seem overwhelming. Farar and Lewis’ attorneys are experienced in dealing with such details as accident investigations, audits of medical records and other important parts of the case.
Medical bills and doctors
If the other person is at fault, you shouldn’t have to bear the financial burden of hospital costs. You may be eligible to be compensated for not only your injuries, but your hospital bills as well. Farar and Lewis have trained physicians who will audit your medical records and then advise our team of personal injury attorneys. We also take depositions from treating physicians and other medical personnel involved.
Investigating the accident
In the pedestrian vs. car battle, the car usually always wins—and usually at great injury to the pedestrian. There is any number of factors that can lead up to an accident like this, and negligence of the driver is a prime suspect. Speeding in crowded areas, ignoring stop signs and stop lights, ignoring the surroundings of the area, and driving while texting are all things that can cause a driver to lose focus and hit a pedestrian—sometimes fatally.
Our firm’s lawyers know what to look for in cases of this type; we go through law enforcement reports, have accident reconstruction experts go over the site if necessary and determine who exactly the driver was and who actually owned the vehicle.
We don’t get paid unless you win
If you’re concerned about lawyers’ fees, understand that all consultations are free. We’ll give you an honest assessment of your case; we take our cases on contingency, which means that unless we win your case, we don’t get paid.
