This post concludes our series on the handling of Austin, Texas pedestrian accident cases. We decided to write on this topic due to the fact that we see that many people do not know how to proceed after they have been hit by a car. The goal of our last several posts has been to provide information which will allows residents of our area to make a better decision when selecting a personal injury attorney to assist them. It cannot be stressed enough that you should immediately seek counsel if you have been injured through no fault of your own.
We have addressed several topics over our recent articles. Subjects which we have analyzed include:
- Using discovery in a pedestrian injury case
- The importance of expert witnesses in catastrophic loss situations
- Taking a pedestrian injury case to trial
These are important topics for several reasons. First, such matters often involve disputes over who was at fault. The pedestrian will claim it was the driver’s fault and vice versa. The discovery process can be crucial in establishing liability. Second, the establishment of liability may require the use of expert witnesses known as “accident reconstructionists.” Third, a Plaintiff should know what it is they should expect from the trial process so that they may be better prepared. These are topics you should ask of perspective counsel when choosing an injury lawyer to handle your case.
When selecting counsel there are other factors to consider. It goes without saying that a victim can suffer serious injuries if they are hit while in a crosswalk. It is important that you hire an attorney, with significant financial resources, to handle such a case. Catastrophic loss cases can last many years and counsel may have to expend large amounts of money to get the case ready for trial. Hiring an attorney with the resources necessary to handle such a matter can help to ensure that your case is prosecuted properly.
