If You Are Injured As A Pedestrian Or Bicyclist
Madison is a beautiful city and one that is made for walking and biking. However, there are also roadways where bicyclists and pedestrians have to compete with cars. This leads to an elevated number of accidents that involve small children, college students, athletes and others.
Contact An Attorney If You Have Been Hit
Insurance companies are not seeking to help you or to pay out what is required for you to return to your most optimum state of health — the state you were in before the accident. A skilled and seasoned attorney will work to ensure that not just any settlement is accepted but only a settlement that is just and fair.
Three Steps To Take If You Have Been Hit
If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, bike accident or hit while walking or running around campus we can help. You or someone close to you may be able to strengthen your case if you provide valuable evidence. There are three things you or someone close to you should do if you are hit while walking or biking:
- Gather the evidence: broken bicycle pieces
- Document the scene: use video or photos, get witness contact information
- Adequately investigate the scene: locate what caused or contributed to the accident
It may not be always possible for you or a loved one or a friend to do this given the situation. If your injuries are severe, a qualified personal injury attorney can help. Your attorney can:
- Order police reports
- Subpoena any videos of your accident
- Investigate the cause of the accident
- Obtain witness statements
- Gather, document and assess your medical records and bills
- Enlist the help of experts to determine the extent of your injuries and loss
We Are Not A Settlement Mill
The lawyers at Atterbury, Kammer & Haag, S.C., are not under pressure to meet quotes. Nor do we process hundreds of cases per year. We are a client-focused firm whose mission is to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they are due after an accident. We understand that the first settlement offered is often not the best, nor the most just and fair offer. After decades of experience we understand what it takes to thoroughly assess each case. Sometimes it takes the filing of a lawsuit to let the insurance company know we are serious. More than 90 percent of cases settle out of court. In our experience many of these settlements are made after a lawsuit is filed. We are not afraid to pursue matters in civil court if an insurance company does not cover the damages incurred by the accident. Call us if you were hit by a car while walking, biking or on a moped or motorcycle.
A settlement is meant to cover the costs and damages incurred by the accident.
- Your medical expenses
- Your pain and suffering
- Your lost wages
- Your property damages
