Pedestrian crossing the street

If you suffer personal injuries as a pedestrian crossing the street or otherwise, then you should know about the process of pursuing a personal injury claim.

What Steps Are Involved In Pursuing A Pedestrian Car Accident Case?

Every personal injury presents a unique situation so at the outset, please understand that we are available at the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC 24/7 to provide you with a free confidential consultation.

That being said, there is a general flow to making a claim for personal injuries when injured as a pedestrian.

First, you need to obtain the best local personal injury law firm, and obviously I am biased here at the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC! When you retain our firm, we will get to work investigating the case properly and getting to know you and your case.

Second, in getting to know you, we want to educate you about the process and provide you with legal advice on what to do and not to do, etc.

Third, as you progress with treatment, our personal injury lawyers and legal team will assist you however we can and also continue to gather the evidence needed to get you a great settlement.

Fourth, when you have finished your treatment we can move towards evaluating your case and also providing any negligent party with the opportunity to settle your case outside of court.

Fifth, as we continue to keep in touch with you and work through the issues, if you do not wish to settle out of court, than we begin the litigation process of filing a lawsuit in Superior Court. With Covid-19, there are some new procedures and delays in the Rhode Island and Massachusetts courts that we keep on top of as we proceed.

The litigation process is its own separate topic. The time it may take once your case is in litigation, if it does not settle beforehand, really varies on several factors. Again, this is unique to your case.  It is the best personal injury lawyer’s job to keep you updated and involved along the way.
