Do NOT try to negotiate with the insurance company yourself! You may not get far, and doing so will likely only work to limit the potential value of your case. Never accept their terms, and do not bargain!
Pedestrian accidents often involve unsuspecting pedestrians who become struck by a vehicle in spite of making reasonable attempts to protect them selves from injury. Many reported pedestrian accidents are linked to the negligent actions of drivers who fail to take proper safety precautions in ensuring they do not harm pedestrians in crosswalks and other areas where they are supposed to share the road with or respect the right of way of those traveling on foot.
The most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
A failure by drivers to check for pedestrians in crosswalks prior to driving through them
Drivers failing to stop at stop signs or lights
Texting and other dangerous driver distractions
Drivers choosing to make turns without paying attention to their surroundings
Driving under the influence
