If you or a loved one was hit by a car while traveling on foot, you might not know what to do. It is important to know what steps to take after a pedestrian accident in Gwinnett County to prevent further losses. An accomplished injury attorney could explain these steps in a free initial case consultation.

What Should Someone Do Immediately After Being Hit by a Car?

If someone has been involved in or witnessed a pedestrian accident, they should call the police immediately. To ensure that oneself and others involved are safe from further harm, they should first be treated by medical providers. Secondly, they should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible so that accident reconstructionists can be sent to the site to obtain evidence that the police may have missed.

Involving a lawyer could help ensure that the case is investigated promptly. It is extremely important to gather documentation immediately after a pedestrian accident so that it is not ruined. Evidence can deteriorate, be lost, or be destroyed over time, but an attorney could help preserve and leverage it to build a compelling case against the at-fault driver.

Importance of Seeking Medical Care

After an accident, injured pedestrians need to follow up with their doctors after their initial treatment. Failure to do so could result in a gap in their treatment. Treatment gaps are problematic because Gwinnett County insurance companies can claim that the pedestrian was not injured or that their injuries were not caused by them being hit by a vehicle.

Gathering Evidence Immediately After Pedestrian Collision

Injured pedestrians can collect an at-fault driver’s information following an accident by calling the police or asking the driver and taking a picture of their information. However, if the pedestrian is hurt as a result of the accident, they should also call emergency medical responders and the police to ensure that they respond to the scene and obtain the driver’s information.

The at-fault driver’s information should be collected at the scene of an accident, and pictures should be taken of the intersection, vehicle, injuries, and anything pertinent to the losses suffered by the pedestrian. Witness statements and information should also be obtained, as well as anything else relevant to the accident.

Taking pictures of the accident scene is important because it can provide compelling evidence regarding liability. If there is a disagreement about whose fault it was, and one party has pictures, they can try to recreate what happened. Without the pictures, they are reliant on testimony and memory.

What Should Someone Do If the Driver Flees the Scene of the Accident?

If the driver flees the scene, someone should call an attorney or the police immediately. An attorney could send a knowledgeable investigator out to try to find information about the driver from witnesses or local businesses with cameras that might have footage, which can be critical.

Discuss What Steps to Take After a Pedestrian Accident in Gwinnett County with a Lawyer

A knowledgeable attorney should be immediately contacted following a collision involving a pedestrian. People traveling on foot are exposed to catastrophic harm if they are struck by a vehicle. A lawyer could gather and preserve evidence to build a claim against the at-fault party.

Knowing what steps to take after a pedestrian accident in Gwinnett County could protect you from severe harm and legal liability. Schedule a consultation with an experienced lawyer today to learn more about how to protect yourself in the event of a wreck.
