Sadly, pedestrian accidents are all too common. If your loved one was injured as a result of a pedestrian accident, there are a few steps you should take for resolution.
- Get seen by a doctor. Whether at the local hospital emergency department or with your primary care provider, get examined. Very serious injuries can take days or even weeks to surface.
- File a police report. In the city or town of the accident, make sure a police report is filed documenting the accident.
- Call an attorney. When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, the injuries sustained are often quite severe: spinal cord, brain injuries and even death.
