What should I do after a pedestrian accident?

Knowing what steps to take following a pedestrian accident can be especially important for pedestrian accident victims. It is important that a victim who has suffered harm in a pedestrian accident understands how to protect their legal rights.

Victims of pedestrian accidents may be able to recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional injuries suffered in a pedestrian accident through a personal injury claim for damages. To do that, it is helpful for them to know what to do following a pedestrian accident. To begin with, following the pedestrian accident, and as soon as it is safe to do so and the victim has received whatever medical care and treatment they need, the victim should record, in writing, as much about the accident as they are able, including the nature of their injuries and the damages they have suffered as a result.

Additionally, pedestrian accident victims should record notes related to conversations they had with parties involved in the pedestrian accident that may be involved in a personal injury claim for damages, including witnesses and others. It is also important to ensure that evidence from the accident is recorded and preserved and taking as many pictures as possible is helpful. There are other steps the victim can also take as they consider a personal injury claim for damages.

Victims of pedestrian accidents can suffer devastating injuries and harm. As a result, it is crucial for them to be familiar with the legal protections available to them and how to protect themselves when they have been harmed by a careless driver.
