Q: Is there anything I can do to help my pedestrian accident claim?
A: If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, there are several key things that you can do to help your pedestrian accident claim. Once you have received medical attention after your pedestrian accident, the first thing that you should do is gather evidence from the scene, if your injuries will allow you to do so.
This may include photographs of the pedestrian accident scene as well as your personal injuries, a copy of the official police report, and the names and contact information of any witnesses. If your injuries prevented you from gathering evidence at the time of your accident, you can still retrieve the police report and return to the scene to take photographs. Likewise, maintain copies of all medical records and bills, keep a daily log of your injuries and keep track of any lost wages that you suffer as a result of the injury.
After the pedestrian accident, be careful in what you say to others about the incident. Never admit fault or apologize for what happened, as this may be seen as an indication of liability. Answer the police and insurance adjuster questions honestly and clearly, but do not elaborate on anything and stick to the most basic facts.
Once you have gathered evidence of your pedestrian accident, you should consider getting in touch with a pedestrian accident lawyer. A lawyer who has experience with accident claims that are very similar to your own can listen to the details of your case and help you to determine whether you have the grounds for a claim.
When speaking with your pedestrian accident lawyer, you should be as honest as possible. Tell your lawyer exactly how the accident occurred, what injuries you have suffered, and any other information that they need to know. Being honest with your lawyer will only help your pedestrian accident claim.
While you can’t predict whether a pedestrian accident will happen to you or someone you love, you can be sure of your best course of action following an accident: Seek medical attention and contact a pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Recovering from your injuries after a pedestrian accident should be your main priority, not dealing with insurance adjusters and complicated legal paperwork. Before accepting a settlement offer, contact our Law Office to set up a no-cost consultation with a pedestrian accident lawyer about your case. More on this website
Common sense tells us that using a cell phone or other hand-held device while driving is going to increase your chances of causing or being involved in a personal injury accident. So, in states that have banned the use of such devices personal injury car accidents and collisions should have been reduced. Right? Wrong.
A new study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety just released and reported on by the New York Times concludes that these laws have not impacted the total number of personal injury accidents of car crashes at all.
And, of course, there are a few flaws in the study.
First, the study determines the reduction in use of hand-held devices by drivers in these states through not exactly scientific methods. Researches went to street corners and exit ramps and observed people using cell phones or not using cell phones and compared that number to the number they obtained before the bans. Seriously. That’s what they did.
Second, and the researchers concede this point, drivers may have simply switched to hands free devices (ya think). Practically every driver I see is talking on a cell phone, has a visible ear-piece, or they are simply mad and talking to their imaginary passengers or co-pilots.
A better study would have examined personal injury accident statistics and compared when car accidents or trucking accidents took place as well as their total numbers after the ban as compared to before – did those numbers move? Also, it would be nice to know if actual cell phone use has decreased during peak driving times. My guess is that it hasn’t.
The Times article seems to indicated that the researchers may feel that talking on our cell phones while driving isn’t quite as distracting as we thought. This is simply the wrong conclusion and a dangerous one.
Cell phone use while driving causes thousands of needless personal injuries, car accidents, and trucking accidents that involve serious brain injuries and even death every year. I am not naive enough to think that people will stop multitasking while driving.
But what is needed is better technology that allows drivers to keep as much of their attention as possible on driving and stricter laws, and penalties that would encourage the use of this technology. Or at least, that would be a good place to start.
