McAllen Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Call Karam if You Were Injured After Getting Hit by a Car

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most serious legal cases we handle at Karam Law Firm. That’s because pedestrians don’t have the same protections as people traveling in cars, trucks or other vehicles. In an instant, you or a loved one can sustain a severe injury while crossing the street or walking alongside a road.

Whatever the circumstances of your pedestrian accident, our McAllen pedestrian accident attorneys want to help you. We have years of experience dealing with injuries involving car accidents. We know the law. We understand how the legal system works. We can help you every step of the way – from filling out forms to filing a pedestrian accident lawsuit on your behalf, if necessary.

Whether you were hit in a crosswalk or while walking alongside a street, our pedestrian accident lawyers can stand up for your rights and demand the financial compensation you deserve. You can count on Karam when it matters most.

What Are Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?

Pedestrian accidents happen for many different reasons. Often, it’s because a driver isn’t paying attention or driving in a reckless manner. More specifically, many pedestrian accidents occur due to:

  • Texting while driving
  • Drinking and driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel

Every pedestrian accident is different. No two cases are ever exactly alike. That’s why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side who takes the time to find out exactly what happened. That’s why we want to meet with you.

What Makes Pedestrian Accidents So Complicated?

Pedestrian accidents often turn into complicated legal cases. Some of the reasons why include:

  • The driver who caused your accident denies doing anything wrong.
  • The at-fault driver claims you somehow caused the accident.
  • The driver’s insurance company denies your pedestrian accident claim.

Attorney Aizar J. Karam Jr. knows the games insurance companies sometimes play after a serious pedestrian accident. That’s because he has extensive experience working with insurance companies. As your attorney, he can use his knowledge to negotiate effectively on your behalf.

  • What if I can’t come to your office?

    That’s not a problem. We understand that an accident may have left you injured and that traveling may be difficult or impossible. We care about your well-being and comfort. So if you can’t come to our office, we will come to you. One of our lawyers can meet you at your home, in your hospital room or anywhere else that is convenient.

    We’ll review the details of your case and ask you some questions. Then we can review your legal options and give you an idea about what to expect. We can also answer any questions that you have about your case.

  • How long will it take to resolve my case?

    It depends on many factors, such as the complexity of your case and how much money is at stake. In general, a case may take anywhere between a few months to a year. If your case goes to trial, it can take even longer.

    Insurance companies try to delay the resolution of a case as long as possible. They don’t want to pay you the compensation you deserve. They are hoping that the longer they delay your case, the more likely it will be that you will give up or accept a lower settlement offer. We will guide you through the process every step of the way.

  • Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?

    Soon after your accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company. They are offering you a settlement! It may not be for as much as you were hoping, but they are promising quick payment. This offer will fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered. The insurance company just wants to save money.

    You should never agree to any settlement unless you have first discussed the offer with an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer. You can get a much better settlement when an insurance company knows you have a personal injury attorney willing to go to trial on your behalf.
