Tampa Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Remember, the Insurance Company IS NOT Working for You

Whenever you step off your porch to go for a walk in the park or a run across town, you instantly put yourself at risk. In fact, according to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, a pedestrian is killed every 100 minutes, and this doesn’t even touch on the number of people who are injured in pedestrian accidents. The reason why these numbers are so staggering is that, as a pedestrian, you are unprotected and at the mercy of automobile drivers who are reckless and negligent and fail to watch for pedestrians.

Needless to say, a pedestrian accident can cause many injuries and damages. This is why the law has set specific regulations to ensure that a victim of a pedestrian accident is fully compensated for all of his or her losses. These losses include medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses, other economic losses, pain and suffering, spousal loss or loss of the services of a spouse, among others.

Sounds straightforward enough, right? The law says you should be compensated for your loss, so now all you need to do is wait for the insurance company to send you the money?

Unfortunately, the process is not so easy.

In fact, the insurance company – who represents the driver – will do everything it can to ensure you receive as little compensation as possible. Within 24 hours of the accident it is likely that they have already fully investigated the claim, collecting witness statements, obtaining a copy of the accident report and taking photographs of the accident scene. They’ll even contact you to get a statement and then use that statement out of context in order to limit the amount they owe you.

All of this while you are busy taking care of your injuries and well-being!

This is why it is essential to immediately contact an attorney such as James O. Cunningham to represent you. A Tampa pedestrian accident attorney will know how insurance companies work and will be able to start putting together your claim so you can devote your time to recovering from your injuries.

    I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver ran a red light and my car was a total loss. I was referred to James Cunningham due to the fact that our attorney’s have been very impressed with James Cunningham’s work. This fact turned out to be very true as Mr. Cunningham helped me win my case to a full and maximum settlement.
