Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Many pedestrian accidents are caused by a driver who fails to yield the right of way to the person on foot. Oregon laws regarding pedestrian accidents are similar to those of automobiles. The laws are clear, but they have many stipulations. If you have Personal Injury Protection insurance, your bills from an accident when you were injured as a pedestrian may exceed your coverage. You will need a lawyer with an exemplary, winning record and in-depth knowledge of how the insurance company works against you. You may be entitled to reimbursement for medical bills for your injuries, lost wages, property damage recovery, and compensation for projected future medical expenses because of the accident. Further, you may be entitled to punitive damages to ensure the kind of accident and injury you suffered does not happen again.
In most instances, Oregon law requires filing a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the accident. This holds true for most pedestrian accidents as well. You will need an attorney who will fully investigate your accident. The Steele Law Firm offers specialized services in pedestrian accident cases.
