What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident
Getting hit by a vehicle is a horrible experience and can leave you in a state of shock. You may feel powerless, but there are some steps you can take to help protect your legal rights:
- Call 911 or contact local law enforcement. The officer who arrives at the scene will prepare an accident report. This report can serve as critical evidence in your pedestrian accident claim. The police officer will provide you with an accident report number that will allow you to obtain a copy of the report once it is ready.
- Get the name, vehicle registration information, and insurance information from any motorist involved in your accident. But do not discuss the accident with anyone.
- Collect contact information from any eyewitnesses to your accident. Your attorney may later need to take a statement from them. Eyewitness accounts can help your claim greatly.
- Document the accident scene. Take photos and video of the damage to the vehicle that hit you. Also photograph the traffic controls at the scene, the lighting, weather, traffic and road conditions, and any of your visible injuries.
- Seek medical treatment immediately. Whether you see your primary physician or go to the emergency room, get treated as soon as possible. This will ensure your injuries are properly diagnosed and documented.
- Finally, schedule a free consultation with a Los Angeles pedestrian accident attorney at Custodio & Dubey LLP. An attorney can explain your legal rights and answer all your questions.
