It is hard to imagine a pedestrian-car accident. It is simply frightening to gauge the impact of a hard, full-metal vehicle body on a soft and fragile human body. This is exactly why there are laws and regulations designed to protect pedestrians. Vehicles have the obligation to yield and practice all necessary precautions to avoid hitting pedestrians.

It’s not easy to think clearly after being hit by a vehicle, but what you say and do at the crash scene will affect the outcome of your subsequent claim. The following tips may help you avoid disputes related to liability and damages and might lead to a fair settlement offer early in the proceedings:

  • Call the police, and make sure an officer creates an accident report;
  • Take photos of your injuries, the accident scene, property damage, the weather conditions, the road conditions, and the vehicle that hit you;
  • For your records, take pictures of the at-fault driver’s license, insurance card, and license plate;
  • Record the phone numbers and names of eyewitnesses;
  • Visit a doctor for an immediate medical evaluation;
  • Tell your doctor about every part of your body that feels pain;
  • Follow your doctor’s treatment instructions, and do not miss any subsequent doctor’s appointments;
  • Keep a journal about your injuries and the recovery process;
  • Do not speak to the insurance adjuster or accept a settlement offer until you have spoken to a lawyer;
  • Stay off of social media; and
  • Contact a pedestrian accident attorney right away to discuss your case.
