Question:

What mistakes should I avoid after a pedestrian accident?

Answer:

One of the common mistakes that we see people make after they’ve been struck by a vehicle is that they don’t report the accident. Reporting is essential to your claim, not only for official documentation, Common Mistakes After a Pedestrian Accident but also so police can make sure that there’s a preservation of evidence on record that we can use later. Another mistake we typically see is that if there are any witnesses to the accident, their names and contact information are not taken down. The more witness testimony that we have, the better we can advocate for your claim. Another mistake that we typically see is that people don’t contact attorneys right away. It’s very important to select an attorney who specializes in personal injury and pedestrian accident cases. Last, people often don’t seek medical attention right away for whatever reason, which can be very damaging to your claim and your health. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We’re always here to help.
