“Can I represent myself in a pedestrian accident case?”

Why Hire a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer - Riddle & BrantleyYes, you are allowed to represent yourself in a pedestrian accident claim, but we don’t recommend it.

According to recent research, those who hire a personal injury lawyer to represent them in their injury claim recover 3.5 times more compensation.

Insurance companies are incentivized to pay as little as possible on your pedestrian accident injury claim, and often use “tricks” to deny liability. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help counter these arguments and strengthen your case for compensation.
