Liability for Your Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents can happen anytime and anywhere. Common causes of pedestrian accidents include distracted drivers, speeding, drunk drivers, inattention to crosswalks, low light conditions, and driver impatience.
After a pedestrian accident occurs, it is important to seek the medical attention you need. Any accident involving a pedestrian can result in serious and catastrophic injury as pedestrians are completely defenseless against cars, trucks, buses, and trains. Once medical care has been sought, injured pedestrians should report the incident to local law enforcement and create an incident report. If possible, the pedestrian should also take photos of the scene and their injuries, gather contact information from potential witnesses, and obtain the negligent individual’s contact information.
