Pedestrian Accidents

It’s hard to imagine life in southern California without the mobility that comes from driving. Unfortunately, extended commutes are not the only downside to the car heavy culture – car accidents pose a danger to pedestrians. If you’ve been hit by a car, there are a few things to consider. Insurance companies will often pressure you to settle quickly for a low value before you’re represented. We recommend you start with this list and reach out to an attorney before accepting any settlement offers.

I Was Injured in a Car Accident, Now What?

As with any accident, the most important step to take immediately afterward is to care for yourself. Seek the initial medical care that you need, and make sure to document the process when possible. If you’ve found yourself in an accident, we recommend the following steps:

  • Call 911 if anyone is in need of emergent medical care.
  • Get to a safe place. If no one is in need of immediate medical care, the next step is to get to a safe place. You’ll need to get additional information related to the accident.

NOTE: If the other party leaves the scene of the accident call 911 immediately after getting away from the danger of moving traffic. This is important as it will create an accident report of the wreck.

  • Exchange information with the driver. Once you are away from moving traffic gather the following information from the driver:
    • Insurance information
    • Name and contact information of the other driver
    • Description of the vehicle
      • Make and model
    • Physical description of the other driver
  • Photograph the Vehicle and Scene
    • Use your phone to take pictures of any injury or damage resulting from the accident.
    • If possible, take photos of the accident scene from multiple vantage points.
  • Seek any other necessary medical care. After dealing with the situation at hand seek any necessary medical care necessary for lingering aches and pains.

In the state of California there is a limited amount of time allowed within which you can file a claim, after that period you may not be able to obtain legal recourse. To avoid missing this period we recommend reaching out to legal counsel immediately regarding your motorcycle accident.
