Albuquerque Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
An attorney who fights to help you recover compensation
People walk in and around Albuquerque every day. They may be going to school, to work or to the store. Or they’re just out getting some exercise. A negligent driver can quickly cause an accident that leaves pedestrians seriously hurt. If you’ve been injured, you need an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer. The Szantho Law Firm can help.
Pedestrians have no protection in an accident, so they can suffer serious injuries. These can include injuries to the head, neck and back. They may suffer broken bones and lacerations. They may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery can take months or even longer. Some victims are left with a permanent disability.
If you were hurt in a pedestrian accident in Albuquerque, you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. Recovering compensation can be a difficult process. That’s why you need an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer who knows how to get results. Attorney Andras Szantho has been helping the injured since 2007.
An attorney who takes on the insurance companies
One of the reasons recovering compensation after a pedestrian accident can be complicated is that negligent drivers typically don’t accept responsibility. They may deny doing anything wrong and will try to make excuses. They may even try to put some of the blame on you. This puts you in the position of having to prove that negligence led to your accident.
Insurance companies are happy to believe drivers who deny responsibility. That’s because they are looking for any reason to pay you as little as possible. They may question the extent of your injuries or the need for certain types of treatment. They might make you a settlement offer soon after the crash, but it won’t come close to covering all the damages you have suffered.
Attorney Szantho knows all the tactics that insurance companies use to try to limit your compensation -- and he doesn’t put up with them. He focuses on building strong cases that hold negligent parties accountable to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
