Steps To Take After a Pedestrian Accident

Seek Medical Attention

If your injuries are extensive and severe, dial 911 while at the accident scene and request an ambulance to transport you to the nearest emergency unit. If your injuries allow you to remain at the scene, getting a complete medical checkup should also be a priority. Once police arrive and prepare the accident report, make sure to go get yourself checked out by a healthcare provider. You may have internal injuries or other issues that are not easily diagnosed by someone with no medical training and not treating them in an opportune manner might have serious consequences on your health. Make sure your doctor specifies on your medical record that the injuries are directly related to the accident.

Document Evidence at The Accident Scene

There is no better time to gather evidence to support your case than while you are still at the scene of the accident. If you are able to do so, take pictures of yourself and your injuries as well as of the car that hit you and its position on the road. If there is anything that might have contributed to the accident, photograph that as well. Get the information on the driver including his driver’s license and insurance policy and write down the details of the car including its make, model, year, color, and license plate. If there are any witnesses around, get their testimonies and contact information. What they saw might become invaluable if your case goes to trial.

Report the Accident to the Authorities

If you are able to get police to come to the scene, let them reach their own conclusion as to what happened. Answer their questions politely and to the point. Try not to speculate as to what caused the accident. You may end up incriminating yourself. Let the authorities do their job. Request a copy of the accident report for your insurance and for your Homestead pedestrian accident attorneys from the law office of Amanda Demanda.

Notify the Insurance Company

Your insurance company needs to be informed about the accident as soon as you can give them a call. It is important to keep in mind that not only do they not have your best interests at heart, they also have an army of attorneys working for them. Let your Homestead pedestrian injury lawyers from Amanda Demanda read any documents and do the negotiating on your behalf. Do not fall for the insurance company’s pressure tactics to accept a low offer that will not cover your injuries and other losses.

Factors Considered in Determining Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim

Before filing a claim against whoever is liable for your injuries and losses, you may want to know how much your case is worth and how much you can expect to receive in compensation. Here are some important factors that play a role in the value of your claim.

The Severity of Your Injuries

This is paramount in determining compensation. The more extensive and severe the injuries and their long-term consequences, the higher the compensation you may receive.

Medical Expenses

You may have incurred costs related to your hospitalization, surgery, prescriptions, doctor’s visits, assistive devices and more. Make sure to keep all receipts and a detailed log of your expenses.

Loss of Earning Capacity

If the injury has kept you from working, you may have lost income, bonuses, commissions, and potential career advancement. Your injuries may also leave you permanently unable to go back to work.

Let the Homestead pedestrian injury attorneys from Amanda Demanda explain to you the compensation you may be entitled to receive and how that is calculated. Set up an appointment today.
