When you witness a serious pedestrian accident in Southern California, you should call 911. If you are the victim and you are conscious, you should wait for police to arrive and seek medical treatment immediately. You should also explain the details of the accident to your doctor to ensure your medical report reflects the pedestrian accident.
If you have a cell phone with you, take pictures of the accident scene from different angles, damaged vehicles, and your injuries if you are capable. If you are not capable, ask a witness to take photographs. Photographs will serve as powerful evidence of your pedestrian accident in Southern California.
After you seek medical care, you should speak with a CA personal injury lawyer to discuss filing an injury claim.
It also helps to gather the following evidence for your case:
- police report;
- your written report of what happened;
- damaged clothing and other belongings; and
- contact information for drivers and witnesses.
Your CA personal injury lawyer will study the evidence to determine who was at fault and should be held accountable for your injuries. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, the accident's effect on your daily life, and lost income. To learn more about pedestrian accidents, please visit our article library.
