We Can Pursue Compensation for Your Damages
Following a pedestrian accident, you may be faced with a variety of damages, such as:
- Current and future medical costs
- Lost wages
- Lost potential future earnings
- Property damage expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
Our team is prepared to gather evidence that proves the cost of your damages and the other party’s role in your accident. We will use police reports, surveillance video, photographs, eyewitness testimony, and more to establish these factors.
You Have a Two-Year Window to File Your Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit
If you’re unable to recover compensation through insurance negotiations, you may need to file a lawsuit. According to Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code §16.003, you generally have two years from the date of your accident or loved one’s passing to do this. Negotiating a settlement, interviewing witnesses, and getting treatment do not extend this deadline.
By failing to file your case in the appropriate manner, the courts may refuse to hear your case. This would leave you with few (if any) financial recovery options.
Acting Promptly Could Be in Your Best Interest
Aside from the two-year deadline, pursuing legal action in a timely manner helps because:
- It allows for the collection of time-sensitive evidence, like traffic camera footage
- It gives your lawyer in Lubbock ample time to build your pedestrian accident case
- It gives you options that otherwise may not be available
Our team is ready to start your case as soon as you give us a call.

How Can Our Pedestrian Accident Team in Lubbock Support Your Case?
Here are just some of the ways that we’ll pursue compensation on your behalf:
We Can Prove Negligence in Your Injury Case
If you suffered injuries in a pedestrian accident, Loncar Lyon Jenkins can fight to secure compensation from the at-fault party. Typically, most personal injury claims are filed under the basis of negligence, as explained by the American Bar Association (ABA).
This involves showing:
- You were owed a duty of care
- The other party failed to uphold this obligation
- You were hurt in a pedestrian accident
- You suffered injury-related losses
Understanding these concepts can be difficult without our firm on your side. Yet, you don’t have to learn the law to recover compensation through a claim or lawsuit. You can have our team handle that for you.
We Can Determine Who Caused Your Accident
Our investigation might reveal that one or more of the following parties caused your accident:
- A car, truck, bus, motorcycle, or bike operator on the road
- A company employee working under their employer’s scope
- A construction worker working on or near a job site
- A local municipality that designed a defective or hazardous crosswalk
Additionally, even if you were partially at fault in the accident, you may still be able to collect damages. Texas operates under a modified comparative negligence doctrine. This means that if your negligence did not primarily cause the pedestrian accident, you can still collect a financial award.
We Can File Your Insurance Claim
To advance your insurance claim, we will:
- Handle your claim’s paperwork
- Identify the liable party
- Present the claims adjuster with evidence
- Negotiate a settlement
- Protect you from bad faith insurance practices
- Update you on any potential offers
- Determine how your portion of fault affects your case
Insurance companies make money from selling policies – not paying out claims. As such, they will do anything to protect their bottom line, even taking advantage of injured people and their loved ones. Let our team handle the insurance company. You stay at home and spend time with your family.
We Can File Your Civil Lawsuit
If we can’t settle your case through insurance negotiations, we will:
- File your lawsuit in civil court
- Take depositions from the other party’s witnesses
- Cross-examine witnesses
- Show the judge and jury your case’s evidence
- Object to any unfair motions or questions
- Argue your case
We will continue negotiating even after we appear in court. The insurance company may agree to our terms once they see that Loncar Lyon Jenkins doesn’t play games.
