What To Do After a Pedestrian Accident
Motorists can be held liable if their negligent or reckless driving caused a pedestrian accident. Each year, tens of thousands of pedestrians are involved in an accident, and nearly 5,000 of them are killed. In order to establish negligence, the plaintiff must prove that the driver caused the accident by committing dangerous acts such as speeding, ignoring a traffic light or stop sign, driving under the influence, or driving distractedly.
There are also several things that you can do to strengthen your case after the accident such as:
- Taking pictures of the accident scene
- Taking pictures of their injuries
- Speaking to witnesses and getting their contact information
- Keeping their medical records and receipts
- Filing a police report
- Never admitting blame
Pedestrian accidents can be alarming, but taking proper steps like those above can be instrumental in the success of your case. If you're ready to fight for justice, our pedestrian accident attorneys are prepared to help.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit for Pedestrian Accidents
There are two options when pursing legal action after a pedestrian accident:
- Filing a Claim: With the at-fault driver's insurance company
- Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit: In civil court. You have 2 years from the accident to file the claim against the driver in the state of Georgia.
However, if you receive an insurance settlement from the at-fault driver, you cannot file a lawsuit.
