Injured by an Inattentive Driver? Take These Steps Now

If you’ve been hit by an inattentive driver in Santa Fe and have to receive medical care, one of the first questions you might have is, “Who is going to pay for all this?”

The first step is to file a pedestrian accident claim.

How do I file a pedestrian accident claim?

The process typically commences with filing a claim for compensation with the insurance company of the at-fault driver. Your lawyer will negotiate with the insurer after filing the claim to reach a mutually agreeable settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney may proceed to file a lawsuit in court to pursue the full payment you deserve.

How long does it take to settle a pedestrian accident claim?

Several factors can influence the time it takes to reach a settlement in a pedestrian accident claim. If the at-fault party accepts liability and your injuries are promptly treated, a settlement might be reached within a few months. However, contested liability or significant financial losses can extend the process, and for complex cases, settlements may take years.
