Pedestrian pain and suffering calculators don't account for many factors
It's natural to want to know what fair compensation would look like after you were hit by a car or truck, but even the best pedestrian accident settlement calculators can't determine the value of your injuries. Your lawsuit isn't something that can just be plugged into an equation. There are too many variables that are taken into consideration when determining the value of your case - including factors like the severity of the accident and all the small details unique to your case.
The largest factor in determining the value of your injuries, by far, is the quality of your legal representation. "Settlement mills" only have one goal - to get you to accept a settlement as quickly as possible so they can move on to the next case. Steve Caya understands that you are a person going through an extremely traumatic time that needs help, not just another case number to settle. Our main goal is to relentlessly fight the insurance company to get you every penny you deserve. We will make this process as easy on you as possible so you can focus on what's really important - your health.

How To Choose The Right Pedestrian Injury Lawyer
Record & preserve evidence of your injury and the accident
Evidence is the most important aspect of determining liability. The other party’s insurance and legal team will do whatever they can to prove your fault.
Seek medical attention
Get medical treatment, even if you're not sure of the extent of your injuries.
Hire a personal injury lawyer
The other party’s insurance team is going to fight to pay as little as they can. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney like Steve Caya will help ensure no stone is left unturned to get you the settlement you deserve.
Document your expenses
Having a complete list of your financial losses due to your injuries is the best way to help your attorney determine the settlement you deserve.
Do not talk to driver's insurance company
After your claim is filed, their insurance will begin an investigation to determine liability. It is in their best interest to put any percentage of fault they can on the victim. They will use everything they can from your conversations to do so. Leave any contact with them to your experienced attorney.
Negotiate a settlement
Though difficult in some cases, it is important to remain patient and allow your lawyer to negotiate the best possible settlement. Insurance companies will do what they can to get you to quickly accept their first offer, even more so if you are experiencing financial hardships and need that money quickly. Steve Caya and his experienced team will fight for every dollar you deserve.

Do I need to hire a pedestrian accident lawyer?
If you were injured after being hit by a vehicle, it's almost always worth hiring a lawyer right away. Insurance companies will always try to pay as little as possible, and they know how to take advantage of the situation. They know that if they apply pressure, most people without quality legal representation will accept their lowball offers. When your claim is handled by an experienced trial attorney, there are two main benefits:
- Your lawyer has been through this process before and will ensure that your claim value is high enough for a full recovery.
- Insurance companies know that a jury trial does not bode well for them and will make much higher settlement offers when facing a proven trial attorney.
By working with a network of experts, skilled personal injury lawyers are able to determine all the sources of liability in your accident. Digging into every source possible, like pictures/videos of the scene and police reports, allow them to determine the exact specifics of the accident. Establishing factors like how fast they were going and who had the right of way can determine fault in the accident. This will drastically strengthen your case, forcing the insurance companies to take it seriously and maximizing your compensation, especially if your case has to go to court.
