Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
It is vital to the safety of pedestrians and motorists to stay alert anytime they are in the presence of one another. Drivers have an advantage over pedestrians while riding, surrounded by the safety of their vehicles. In contrast, pedestrians lack any protection from oncoming cars.
Driver negligence is the leading cause of pedestrian accidents. Drivers collide with passengers when:
Failing to stop at crosswalks;
Failing to yield at intersections;
Driving on sidewalks;
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Pedestrians may suffer severe or even life-threatening injuries when hit by a car including, but not limited to:
Head and neck injuries;
Brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI);
Spinal cord injuries;
What to do After a Pedestrian Accident
After a pedestrian accident, call for emergency help and contact the police. Many accident injuries can take days to become apparent, especially brain injuries. Therefore, get medical care immediately.
Try to take down the name of the driver, vehicle registration, and insurance information. If unable to do so, the officer will do so when he or she arrives. Do not give a statement or sign any documents from the insurance company representing the driver.
Finally, call an experienced pedestrian accident attorney to explain your legal rights and guidance on proceeding with a claim. Ramsey Law Group can review your accident, the extent of your injuries, and your medical records to estimate the value of your claim.
