Pedestrian Accidents Are Extreme Emergencies
If you are ever a witness or involved in a pedestrian accident, you must act quickly. These situations can easily lead to death if medical treatment is not administered immediately. If you were the driver, make sure that the person that was struck is ok. Contact a medical facility and exchange as little info as possible. Definitely avoid admitting guilt and/or fault. Anything you say and do can be used against you in a court of law. If you were the one struck by the vehicle then you are warranted to a large quantity of compensation if the driver was proven to be driving recklessly.
Establishing Which Side is Negligible
In order for you to be compensated, you need to establish that the driver was being negligible. As a pedestrian you have a responsibility just as the driver does to exercise a reasonable standard of care. Situations where a pedestrian would be at fault would be walking at an undesignated time across the crosswalk. Make sure to report your entire side of the story to the authorities as long as you have retained consciousness. These accidents are very dangerous and trying on a person who has just been in a very serious accident. If you or someone you know has been in a Pedestrian Accident, call The Inserra Law Firm.
