How We Can Help You
The law lets victims of accidents caused by negligence or deliberate harm get financial compensation for their injuries. This is done through filing insurance claims or through lawsuits. Simmrin Law Group can help you with both.
Injured victims have enough to worry about without navigating the legal system on their own. You may not know how much your case should be worth, and insurance companies would be all too happy to offer you less than you deserve in a settlement.
Here are just a few of the tasks we do for our clients:
- Determine who was at fault and your legal options
- Gather evidence for your case
- Calculate the full value of your case so we can reach a fair settlement
- Handle all communication between you, the insurer, and the defendant
- Negotiate for the best settlement possible
- Prepare your case for trial if the insurers fail to come to a reasonable settlement with you
In short, we handle all of your legal headaches and protect your interests. Find out if your case qualifies for compensation by contacting us anytime, 24/7, to schedule a free consultation and case evaluation. Put our years of legal experience to work for you.

Is There an Average Amount for Pedestrian Accident Settlements?
There isn’t an average pedestrian injury settlement because every case has a unique set of circumstances. We can sometimes give a rough estimate based on similar cases, but we will not know for sure how much your case is worth until we see the evidence.
Once that’s done, we will fight to get you the most possible from your claim within the limits of the evidence and the law. We won’t let the insurance companies try to give you a lowball settlement or delay your case.
Some factors that affect the value of cases include:
- Your exact injuries and how hard they will be to treat
- How much time you lost from work, and how much you earn
- The long-term effects of your injuries
- How they affect your family
- How much pain and suffering you’ve experienced because of your accident

What Should I Do After a Pedestrian Accident?
If you’re reading this, you or someone you love has probably been in a pedestrian accident and needs to speak with a pedestrian accident lawyer in Carlsbad. Here are some steps you can take to help your claim.
- If you haven’t talked to the police to make a crash report, do that first.
- If you haven’t seen a doctor yet for injuries, do that next.
- Gather any evidence you may have collected about the accident and how it has affected you like photos, videos, bills, invoices, etc.
- Start keeping a journal of what you’ve experienced, starting with the day of your accident. Date all entries.
- Contact Simmrin Law Group to assess your claim.
These steps will give our lawyers the information we need to evaluate your case before we decide whether to take it. Personal injury lawyers only get paid if we win, which is one reason we give consultations before taking cases. They also help you feel comfortable with us and our approach to pedestrian accident law. There’s no obligation to use our services after a consultation.

Do You Take Fatal Pedestrian Accident Cases?
Yes, we do. The odds of fatality in a pedestrian accident case is much higher than you may know. If you’ve lost a loved one after an accident, the survivors may be eligible for a wrongful death claim. We can help you with this kind of claim.
Wrongful death claims follow different rules from other personal injury cases. For example, only certain people are permitted to file a claim. In a nutshell, only close family members or named personal representatives can do it.
Don’t worry about the details, though. A consultation can clear up whether your case qualifies for a wrongful death claim, who can bring it, and how compensation gets divided should you win. These claims can soften the financial shock of losing a loved one, so don’t lose your opportunity if you’re in this situation.

When Should I Contact a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?
The best time is as soon as you’ve spoken to the police and seen a doctor for your injuries. The sooner you speak with us, the sooner we can start preparing your case. Some pieces of evidence may disappear quickly without a lawyer’s intervention.
Also, your case becomes more difficult as time passes. If you wait too long to see a doctor, an insurer could try to claim that your injuries weren’t as severe as you think, or that something else injured you. It’s easier to protect you from claims like these if you act now.
Also, there is an absolute deadline for starting personal injury claims in California. If you breach the statute of limitations, you cannot file a claim in court for your injuries. Do not let this happen; there’s little we can do if you’re in this situation. Call a lawyer early so they have time to investigate and negotiate before they must file a lawsuit.
