Swift action is necessary when you are struck by a vehicle

Being struck by a vehicle when you are on a bike or walking is a devastating experience. You might not have seen the car coming. If you did see the car coming, you likely didn’t have a chance to react. In any case, you should understand that you do have the option of seeking compensation for your injuries.

Seeking compensation might help to reduce the strain you feel because of the accident. Once compensation is awarded, you can take care of your bills and pay for other expenses. Of course, you have to work toward making that happen.

Gather information to use in your case

We understand that you might need time to rest and recuperate from the injuries. If you plan to seek compensation, we need to get started on gathering information quickly. We can handle this aspect of your case while you focus on you. One reason this is so important is that we need to make sure that we don’t miss out on any important evidence. We need to try to get everything we can before it is lost or altered.

Put everything together

Once you are ready to put your case together, we will decide how to show that the defendants caused the accident that led to your injuries. We will then show how the damages you suffered were directly connected to the injury and the accident. All of this needs to be put together and filed in court before the time limit for filing a claim expires. We know that you might need to take some time to heal, but remember that once the statute of limitation expires, you can’t file your claim.
