What should I do after being injured in a pedestrian accident?
One of the things that need to be done after a pedestrian accident is you need to make sure that this injury gets reported either to the local police department, DPS, or sheriff’s office, depending on where the accident happened. The second thing is it’s important to seek immediate medical attention. This not only means going to the local hospital right away but also seeking help from your personal doctor. It’s important that you follow up with your personal doctor because you may have injuries that were untreated at the hospital.
It’s also important that you hire a lawyer who’s experienced in these type of accidents because there may need to be additional investigation. For example, there may be cameras from local stores in the area where the accident happened that are going to get erased if they’re not obtained right away. There may need to be a subpoena to get this documentation, or an investigator that needs to be hired to obtain the surveillance video. There also may be evidence at the scene that only an experienced lawyer will know how to preserve. If you have any questions, we are here to help.
