Pedestrian Car Accident Injury Lawyer
For motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, you can recover compensation only if you are 50 percent or less at fault. As a result, the insurance company may try to push as much blame as possible onto the party who is making the claim. In these situations, it is vital to have representation from a lawyer who is experienced in these types of accidents.
