Many pedestrian accident victims think that they can resolve their injury claim directly with the other party's insurance company rather than hire a pedestrian accident lawyer. Most who try to do this on their own end up regretting that decision to do so. When an injured pedestrian is not represented by a qualified pedestrian accident attorney, the insurance company, which is in the business of paying out as little as possible, will usually lead the victim to believe they will be dealt with fairly, and will be adequately compensated. The reality is that insurance companies will usually take advantage of the unrepresented party by offering them a grossly insufficient settlement amount. Do not fall victim to this tactic.
