Building Your Case for Compensation
When you work with our pedestrian accident attorneys, we have a specialized process in place for successfully building your case for compensation. We take calculated steps to use the legal discovery system to your advantage to build strong evidence to show the other side why you deserve the compensation you are asking for. First, your injury attorney works with you to gather all the facts surrounding the incident, including the initial police or injury report. If possible, they may also investigate the actual scene of the accident. Next, we utilize our extensive network of specialists, including accident reconstruction experts, medical specialists, and forensic specialists to help us use the facts of your accident to prove your claim.
We may also work with your doctor to identify your prognosis and a complete care plan for recovery. Throughout your case, we file essential legal documents, including the initial complaint, a summons, and motions if necessary. Our attorneys also work to diligently and accurately value your claim. Valuing your case is a crucial part of getting the full amount of compensation you are owed, so we make sure to include all categories of damages possible, including both economic and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress. While we are building your case, we also participate in negotiations with the other side in hopes of getting you a settlement before trial.

Don’t Settle With Insurance Companies
Winning Compensation After a Pedestrian Accident
Winning compensation after a pedestrian accident requires taking action. In most cases, you need to file a legal complaint to initiate a court case.

Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I was at a stoplight and I heard some screeching and I looked in my rear-view mirror and I saw a truck go around me real quick, but the car behind him didn’t have a chance and hit me. A friend of mine told me about Adam Kutner and so I went in to see them and it was very, very pleasant under the circumstances and they handled everything, and I wasn’t worried about anything, it was great. The first thing they did was they helped me find a chiropractor and I went a few months and I feel better now. I was really happy with my settlement, in my opinion he is the best lawyer in as Vegas.”
