      Question:

      What are some common mistakes to avoid after a pedestrian accident claim?

      Answer:

      There are several mistakes injured pedestrians commonly make that can put their pedestrian accident claim at risk. One of these is agreeing to give a recorded statement to the insurance company about the accident. This is always a mistake, because the insurance adjuster is sure to take advantage of the conversation to try and poke holes in the victim’s side of the story. 

      It’s critical to be aware that the insurance company is calling to help the insurance company, not you. They will take any opportunity you give them to shift as much blame as possible from them to you. The less they are to blame for your injuries, the less they must pay you in compensation.

      Your best course of action when it comes to the insurance company is to turn all communications over to your attorney. Our Spokane pedestrian accident lawyers know how to communicate with the insurance company in a way that protects the value of your claim.

      Another huge mistake that can jeopardize your pedestrian accident claim is not getting a medical exam after the accident. This will put your health at risk and could be life-threatening if you’ve got internal bleeding or a head injury you are unaware of. Protect your health and see the doctor whether you feel injured or not.

      Seeking a medical exam is also going to protect the value of your pedestrian accident claim, because it generates a medical report the insurance company can’t ignore. Having a dated record of an exam and any injuries you’ve suffered is powerful proof to support your claim.
