What should I do after being injured in a pedestrian accident?
If you’re a pedestrian who has been injured in a car crash in the state of Arizona, the first thing you need to do is make sure you take care of your health. Get to the medical providers you need to and do everything you can to get back to full strength as soon as possible. Also, it’s important to get photographs of the scene, the cars involved, and the area where it happened to the extent that’s possible or have somebody else do that for you. One of the other things that you should do is hire an attorney who can assist you with that quickly so that they can track down witnesses, deal with getting photographs, get the electronic data, and make sure that the evidence that’s needed is preserved.
It’s important that you also hire the right attorney to do that. Hire somebody who has dealt with pedestrian crashes, and makes this a regular focus of their practice. I always like to recommend that you get a trial attorney so that if an insurance company wants to go towards litigation, you’ve got an attorney who knows what they’re doing.
