What should I do after a pedestrian accident?

If you or someone you know has been involved in a pedestrian accident, the first thing you should do is make sure the pedestrian gets the medical treatment that they need. Some people might be tempted to wait and see if their injuries resolve on their own but that would be a mistake, a medical professional should document your injuries, and that they are related to an accident with a vehicle, within days of the accident. It is also very important, shortly after a pedestrian accident, to start to gather evidence. If you were at the scene and you see a pedestrian hurt, it is important that your name and other witnesses' names are on the police report so that attorneys and people investigating the accident can find witnesses later. Witnesses can be very hard to find but are often crucial to determining who is at fault in pedestrian accidents.

You do not want to delay getting an attorney. Attorneys can request and subpoena, if necessary, surveillance videos. We can get to the scene and examine skid marks and look for other clues to determine who was at fault in the pedestrian accident. Don't delay in calling us if you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident.
