Tennessee Lawyers Explain Why You Shouldn’t Represent Yourself in a Pedestrian Injury Claim

If you have been involved in an accident as a pedestrian, you should receive compensation. In many cases, however, insurance companies will do their best to pay out the least amount in a claim. Working with a pedestrian accident lawyer is almost always the best course of action in a personal injury claim. There are many reasons for this.

A Lawyer Can Help Minimize Stress

After you’ve been hit by a vehicle, you may have serious injuries. Your focus should be on healing—both physically and emotionally—from the crash. Hunting down paperwork, dealing with insurance companies, or attempting to file a lawsuit will only add to your stress. A lawyer can also ensure that your injury documentation is solid, particularly if there are pre-existing conditions that might affect your claim.

A personal injury lawyer can easily work through all the necessary paperwork to help you resolve your claim, lifting a heavy burden from your shoulders. In addition, insurance companies often take claims more seriously if victims have legal representation.

A Lawyer Can Help You Recover More Damages

Most personal injury cases never make it to trial because it is usually in the best interest of all parties to settle and skip a lengthy trial. But it’s not uncommon for an insurance company to initially offer a settlement that is too low. Reaching a fair settlement requires aggressive negotiations, and a personal injury lawyer knows how to value damages, gather the evidence to prove the damages are warranted, and make persuasive arguments in your favor.

A Lawyer Can Help Protect You Against Costly Mistakes

If you decide to pursue a lawsuit because of your pedestrian crash, you have just one year to do so in Tennessee. Having a lawyer can help ensure you do not miss such an important deadline or make other common mistakes.
