We Investigate Pedestrian Accidents Thoroughly
You may not know why you or a loved one were injured in an accident. This is part of the reason to call an attorney. Our team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will thoroughly investigate the incident. We will gather all evidence immediately available, including the police report, eyewitness testimony, your medical records, and photos and videos of the accident scene. We will thoroughly analyze all of this and prepare to gather additional evidence during discovery. Discovery is a pre-trial phase of litigation that enables us to obtain information from the other side. We will use various legal tools to get more information about the at-fault party or their employer. This evidence can help us build our case against the liable party.
We Create Custom Legal Strategies
One of the benefits of working with Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is that we never treat one pedestrian case like another. We know each situation is unique and must be looked at with fresh eyes and ideas. After an independent and thorough investigation into the accident, we will have a good idea of what happened, who was directly at fault, and who is liable for compensating you for your injuries. We will use this information to determine how to pursue compensation and from whom. We also work closely with you, your medical providers, and experts to calculate the value of your physical, psychological, and financial injuries. We identify all of the ways in which you have been harmed. We calculate your actual expenses and losses, and then we determine an appropriate value for your intangible injuries. Custom strategies not only improve the chance of you receiving compensation but also enables us to maximize the compensation we pursue through an insurance settlement or from a jury.
