What to do if you are involved in a pedestrian accident

If you are involved in a pedestrian accident, meaning a pedestrian has been hit by a vehicle such as car, truck or motorcycle, there are some steps you should take to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.

Contact the police to seek help and report the scene

After an accident, call 911 and inform them of the situation. They will send out emergency responders to help anyone injured and a police officer to document what happened. They will create a report containing important information that can play a big role in an insurance company’s decision on liability coverage.

Go to the hospital to look after your health and check for hidden symptoms

You need to go to the hospital right after the accident, or at the earliest possible. Some symptoms can appear a few days after and have to be reported to your doctor in case they may indicate an emergency. Do not forget to follow the instructions of your practitioner as any failure to do so can affect your case adversely.

Start building your evidence report and document the accident

If it is safe to do so, document the accident by taking photos or videos, such as:

  • Vehicle situation;
  • Impacts on the vehicle;
  • Physical and property damages;
  • Property damages;
  • The entire scene;
  • Skid marks;
  • Street signs.

Ask for the contact information of potential witnesses and try to ask for permission to record their statements with your phone.

Inform your insurance company but do not accept anything without having seen a pedestrian accident attorney

Reporting an accident to your insurance company can be tricky- on one hand, you want them to know what happened as soon as possible. But on the other hand, you don’t want to say anything that could potentially jeopardize your claim or absolve the at-fault party of responsibility. It is important that you receive the help from a pedestrian accident lawyer that have all the relevant law knowledge to get the compensation you deserve for your case.

Having an expert and trusted lawyer is essential. Our team of Warriors for Justice will relentlessly fight for your rights.

How to deal with your insurance company following with the help of a pedestrian accident lawyer

Here are some key point for how best to handle this situation:

  1. Call your insurance company right away after the accident occurs.
  2. Do not agree to give a recorded statement or speak with the at-fault insurer before consulting with an attorney first.
  3. Depending on the type of coverage you have, it may be possible for you to file a claim through your own policy if you decide not to deal directly with the other party’s insurer.
  4. Call a Florida pedestrian accident lawyer before you speak with the at-fault party’s insurance company. You have rights and options that might not be apparent, and an attorney can help ensure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
