SERIOUS PEDESTRIAN CRASH EXAMINATION

Cops believe that Kelete drove the wrong method on a ramp and pending the investigation he could deal with added fees. In addition to the diligent work of police, Candice Bond, a knowledgeable automobile accident lawyer, said in cases such as this it is essential to have an independent examination performed by a skilled attorney to safeguard a victim’s rights.
“Time is of the essence in cases such as this and the family of victim should make sure that evidence is reviewed in an efficient manner,” said Bond, Handling Partner at Bond Sanchez-Gordon. “An attorney will thoroughly evaluate what may have added to the crash and has the resources to hire skilled witnesses, conduct chauffeurs’ background checks, locate witnesses to the crash and review suitable insurance protection. Functioning as an advocate, a lawyer can help compassionately guide a victim and their household throughout this challenging time, while safeguarding their legal rights and benefits.”
WASHINGTON INJURY ATTORNEY
Andrew Wright, Of Counsel with Bond Sanchez-Gordon, kept in mind that it is crucial for victims to employ a lawyer when submitting an injury claim, which permits them to negotiate with an insurance company on behalf of a client.
“Insurance companies often try to press victims to opt for a quick payout for far less than the case deserves,” Wright stated. “They are economically motivated to restrict settlement and do not consider the long-term effects and suffering that a victim will ultimately experience. Attorneys vigorously promote for their customers to make sure that they are treated with regard and compensated fairly.”
