Maine Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Our Portland car accident lawyers hold negligent drivers accountable
People can be seen out walking every day – in Waterville, Portland and throughout the state. Most people usually don’t think about the possibility of getting into an accident while they are out walking. The experienced attorneys at Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC fight for their rights and help them recover financial compensation.
Drivers and passengers have some protection when there’s a car accident. Pedestrians don’t have any protection. When they are hit by a car, they can suffer serious injuries. These include broken bones, as well as injuries to the head, neck or back. Recovery can take months or years. Some never fully recover.
Following an accident, injured pedestrians may face surgery, hospitalization, medication and months of physical therapy. Medical expenses can add up very quickly and seem impossible to pay. If an injured pedestrian is unable to return to work, there is less money coming in. It can be a very difficult time physically, emotionally and financially.
Our Portland car accident lawyers never back down
If a negligent driver caused your accident, you deserve financial compensation. For example, the driver may have been texting at the time of the crash. Or the driver was speeding, driving recklessly or operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Negligent drivers typically deny doing anything wrong, making recovering compensation more difficult.
Don’t expect much help from insurance companies. They’re supposed to help after an accident, but they are always thinking about their bottom line. They want to keep profits up, so they will try to keep payments down. They have lawyers looking out for their best interests.
That’s why you need a Portland car accident lawyer who will fight for you. Our attorneys are very familiar with the tactics that insurance companies use to try to limit your compensation. They’ll question the extent of your injuries or argue they were pre-existing. They may even try to put some of the blame on you.
