Brian D. Guralnick has been serving the cities in Palm Beach County as a personal injury lawyer since 1993. Mr. Guralnick represents those who are victims of pedestrian accidents, a common occurrence in south Florida.
(Newswire.net — February 12, 2015) West Palm Beach, FL — According to recent statistics, Florida ranks among the states with the highest number of pedestrian accidents. It is very important that those who have been the victim of a pedestrian accident have the advice of a qualified personal injury attorney. Brian D. Guralnick, an attorney in West Palm Beach, discusses what victims should know and do after a pedestrian crash.
“Pedestrian victims are often blamed for their own injuries,” says Guralnick, who has been practicing law in the West Palm Beach area since 1993. “Unfortunately, insurance companies have a strong interest in protecting themselves from these claims and will take any opportunity to deny victims the payment they deserve.”
As a personal injury lawyer Mr. Guralnick believes strongly in educating accident victims of their rights. “When victims understand their rights, they become empowered to act,” says Guralnick. He stresses that motorists have the greatest responsibility in preventing pedestrian crashes and urges them to take pro-active steps, such as installing back-up cameras in their vehicles. Safety features such as back-up cameras greatly reduce the risk of “backing accidents,” which account for a large percentage of pedestrian injuries to children.
However, pedestrians should also be aware of precautions they can take as well as steps to follow after an accident. “The most important thing you can do as a pedestrian is to stay visible,” says Guralnick. “Wear bright clothing, carry a flashlight at night, and stay aware of your surroundings, including traffic.” Guralnick goes on to say that if a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, under no circumstances should he or she talk to anyone without an attorney present. “Vigilance is your best protection before a crash. An attorney is your best protection after,” says Guralnick.
As a car accident attorney Brian D. Guralnick has represented hundreds of pedestrian accident victims in the Palm Beach County communities of West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Boca Raton. In order to ensure these victims can afford the expenses associated with recovery, Mr. Guralnick urges those involved in pedestrian accidents to contact his office as soon as possible after an accident.
