Pedestrian Accident: What to Do After You’ve Been Injured

The risk of personal injury increases if you are a pedestrian who is involved in a collision. Therefore, it’s important to protect your injury claim in order to recover damages. 

Immediately following a pedestrian accident, you should move out of the roadway, unless there is a potential spinal trauma. In this case, you need to wait for emergency personnel to arrive, so there isn’t further injury. 

Even if you don't feel seriously injured, you should request medical help. Paramedics can give you an evaluation to determine if you should go to the emergency room. 

While you should exchange contact information with the driver, you should avoid saying anything. You don’t want to say anything that may be turned against you later. You shouldn’t even say something as simple as, “I’m sorry.”
