What should I do after a pedestrian accident?
The most important thing for an individual to do if they’ve been injured as a pedestrian and hit by a car is to call 911, if possible. That way, emergency medical help can get to the scene immediately, and the police can get to the scene to do their investigation and document the scene. It’s very important to not only seek medical treatment, but to get the police to the scene so that it can be documented.
The next very important thing to do is to make sure to get medical treatment, not only for peace of mind and to know the extent of the injuries and begin the road to recovery, but also to document the injuries if that’s needed at a later point in time.
Another very important step to take is to hire the right lawyer. It’s very important that if you’ve been injured as a pedestrian, you hire the right lawyer. If you hire the wrong lawyer, it can make the difference of you getting recovery and full and fair compensation to little recovery or no recovery.
