Ventura Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Compensation for Pedestrians Hit by Cars in Ventura
Not many people think twice about walking down the street, to the grocery store, or even to and from work. More and more people are walking, not just for recreation, but to transport themselves from point A to point B. It saves money, reduces pollution, and is healthy. Whether you are a student at Ventura College, or just a city resident, walking is an everyday routine, especially if you live near the beach. Just because something is routine, however, does not mean it is always safe.
Being a pedestrian has many benefits, but there are also risks. With so many drivers on the road, especially in Ventura, which has such a strong tourism industry, the safety of pedestrians is often in the hands of drivers, many of whom fail to yield the right-of-way and/or pay proper attention. If you’ve been injured in a Ventura pedestrian accident, the knowledgeable Ventura personal injury attorneys at NordstrandBlack PC can examine the details of your accident and gather the appropriate evidence to present a strong case on your behalf.

Pursuing a Valid Claim
Filing a personal injury claim can be complicated and to be successful, you must prove that the negligence of another party caused your injuries. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still have a valid claim. In addition, it is possible that your accident resulted from more than one cause or type of negligence.
It is important to know that at-fault parties and their insurance companies are not in the habit of paying fair compensation because they take responsibility for their actions. They will use any and all information they can gather to prove that it was not negligence on their part that caused your injury accident. To stand tall against these obstacles, you must be equally prepared to present evidence to prove that negligence was the cause.
Overcoming Insurance Obstacles
Insurance companies are in the business of making money and may resort to a number of tactics to avoid paying out a fair settlement. Insurance representatives of the at-fault party may attempt to obtain an official statement concerning the accident that they can manipulate to use against you; they may delve into your medical records to attempt to contest the seriousness or impact of your injuries; they may even deny compensation for your injuries outright; or they may even attempt to pass a case off as frivolous at trial. The bottom line is that insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying, which is why it is important to have strong legal representation on your side that is prepared to fight their tactics.
Committed to Obtaining Justice
Being hit by a truck, car, or other motor vehicle is a traumatic experience. Recovery after suffering serious injuries, such as broken bones, brain injury, and/or spinal cord injury, is dependent on getting the proper medical care. Medical treatments, rehabilitative care, medical at-home accommodations, and even counseling may be necessary for the rest of your life after a serious injury. Getting the services you need is necessary for recovery and those services are dependent on financial security.
