What Steps Should I Take Immediately After A Pedestrian Accident?

If you're involved in a pedestrian accident, it's crucial to take specific steps to protect your health and legal rights. 

Here's what you should do immediately after the incident:

  1. Seek Immediate Medical Care: Prioritize your health above all else. Even if you think you're uninjured, some conditions might not show symptoms right away. Obtain medical attention promptly and adhere to all medical recommendations.
  2. Notify the Authorities: Contact the police and report the incident. Having an official police report can be crucial for supporting your case.
  3. Collect Key Details: Get the driver's contact and insurance information at the scene. If there are witnesses, gather their contact information too. Take photographs of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage to serve as valuable evidence.
  4. Watch Your Words: Be mindful of what you say following the accident. Avoid offering apologies or admitting fault, as these statements can be used against you in future legal proceedings.
  5. Preserve Your Evidence: Retain the clothing and footwear you were wearing during the accident, and meticulously document your injuries and medical treatments. This thorough documentation can play a critical role in your case.
  6. Spek With a Long Beach Pedestrian Accident Attorney: Contact a seasoned pedestrian accident lawyer near you at your earliest convenience. The expert legal counsel provided by professionals at our firm can profoundly influence the success and outcome of your case.

Elderly Pedestrian Accident Victims

Elderly pedestrians are more likely to be the victim of a pedestrian accident. They are more vulnerable. They take longer to cross the street, giving them more opportunity to be struck by a negligent motorist. An elderly pedestrian's reflexes are slower, making it harder for them to move out of the way of a negligent driver. An elderly pedestrian's hearing and vision can be less acute, which also makes them more vulnerable and reduces the chance they'll hear or see an approaching careless driver.

Elderly victims of a pedestrian accident generally suffer more serious injuries. Elderly people are more fragile and more vulnerable to injury. When they are injured, they can take longer to recover. As a body ages, it does not heal as quickly. Read more about injuries to elderly accident victims here. A senior's health and independence are precious. When the carelessness of a negligent driver takes that away, the motorist must pay for the harm caused.

Our firm will aggressively pursue the compensation that our clients are due for their injuries. In many cases, insurance companies will do everything in their power to avoid giving accident victims the compensation they deserve. That is why it is so important to have the assistance of a highly skilled attorney at your side. Why should you be responsible for medical bills that were someone else's fault? Why should you and your family suffer from the consequences of your inability to work and bring home a paycheck? Our attorneys will make the negligent party pay for the harm caused.
