Oakdale Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

When a negligent driver makes an error behind the wheel that leads to a collision with you as a pedestrian, you could suffer life-altering injuries. Unlike when you are riding in a car, you do not have any safety gear available when you are walking, leaving your body to take the brunt of the impact. You could have a long recovery ahead of you after suffering serious injuries, and you could have significant financial losses from medical costs and lost wages.

You have the right to seek damages from the at-fault driver. However, filing a personal injury claim on your own can be a challenge, especially when you are attempting to recover from your injuries. Consider relying on Tyroler Leonard Injury Law’s Oakdale pedestrian accident lawyers to represent you in your injury claim. We’ll use our multiple collective decades of experience to benefit you in your case. You then have more time to focus on your recovery.

Attorneys Isaac Tyroler and Rachel Sperling Leonard both have a passion for helping victims protect their rights against insurance companies that are trying to take advantage of them. Members of our team often receive requests from other law firms to have us help with their cases because of our attention to detail and our tireless efforts. Some of the steps our pedestrian accident lawyers in Oakdale will take on your behalf include:

  • Listening to your concerns about the case
  • Investigating the facts around the accident
  • Speaking with your doctors about your health outlook
  • Hiring accident recreation experts, as necessary.

How Do You Figure Out How Much My Pedestrian Accident Case Is Worth?

When we have all of the facts about your accident, our Oakdale pedestrian accident attorneys will meet with you to determine the best way to move forward. We develop an estimate of what your case could be worth. We then begin negotiations with the insurance company for you. Should the insurer refuse to negotiate fairly, we will prepare to represent you at a trial.

To determine the amount we believe we should request, we look at the awards we have won in past cases that are similar to yours. However, we primarily focus on the severity of your injuries, on the way the accident has reduced your quality of life, and on what kind of health and employment future you may have going forward. We calculate your actual losses from medical bills and lost wages, along with estimating the future losses related to your injuries.

Even though we are asking for a certain amount, we cannot guarantee that you will win that amount in your case. Such promises would be unethical behavior for our legal team. However, we do have a strong track record of winning six- and seven-figure settlements for our clients. Generally, victims with the most serious injuries have a greater chance of winning a large award than those who are able to return to their normal life within a few weeks.

If we do not think we can help, we will tell you. We would not lie to you in an effort to convince you to hire us. If we believe we can help, we explain the steps we will take on your behalf. You then can decide whether you want to hire us.

As the case progresses, we promise to continue to be honest with you. We do not exaggerate how the case is going. We never want to give you a false idea about your prospects in the case, only to deliver an unwanted surprise at the end. We seek to build trust with you at all times.

FAQs: Learn More About How Our Attorneys for Oakdale Pedestrian Injury Accidents Can Help with Your Claim

One of the key services we provide for our clients is a promise to answer any questions they may have at any point in the claim process. Our Oakdale pedestrian accident attorneys know that you probably are going through a situation like this for the first time, meaning you likely will have many questions. Here are some common questions we hear from clients.

How Long Does It Take to Settle A Pedestrian Accident Injury Claim?

Our Oakdale pedestrian injury accident law firm always works to try to settle your case as quickly as possible. However, we will not sacrifice the amount we can win for you just to speed things along. A case with short-term injuries where the facts are clear could settle in a few months. A case with long-lasting and life-altering injuries could require a few years to settle.

What Can I Do to Improve My Chances of Winning a Large Pedestrian Injury Accident Award?

The most important things you can do are to tell the truth about what happened and to take care of your health by following your doctor’s advice. Be completely honest with us and with the insurance company about any pain or emotional trauma you are feeling. Do not tell the insurer one thing and then say something different to your friends or on social media. Always be truthful.

What If I Have a Concussion After a Driver Hit Me While I Was Walking?

You can include the symptoms you are having from a concussion as part of your injury claim. Concussions can lead to head pain, sensitivity to light, memory loss, and other health issues that tend to linger. These issues can be part of a pain and suffering judgment for your personal injury award.

Is There a Time Limit For Bringing An Injury Claim From My Pedestrian Accident?

Under Minnesota statute 541.05, victims have up to six years from the date of the accident to file an injury lawsuit. Our Oakdale pedestrian injury accident attorneys recommend that you contact us as early as possible after the accident. However, as long as we can file the lawsuit claim within the six-year time frame, you have the right to seek damages.

If I Was Jaywalking at The Time of The Crash, Does It Affect My Ability to Win an Injury Award?

Because the Minnesota Crosswalk Law requires pedestrians to only cross intersections in a crosswalk, you could be in violation of the law if a car hits you when you are jaywalking. If you are violating the law, it may affect the determination of fault in the case. Because Minnesota follows a comparative fault system, if our team can show that the driver was still primarily responsible for the crash, you may be eligible to receive a partial award. Reach out to Tyroler Leonard Injury Law to discuss the facts in your case, and we can give you advice on what we believe you should do.

Keeping you informed is important to us. We never want our clients to be unsure about where the case stands or on what steps we are taking. Along those lines, our pedestrian injury accident lawyers in Oakdale strive to work with our clients as a team. We provide advice on what steps we believe we should take in the case, but you always have the final say.
