After a Pedestrian Accident

What should I do after being injured in a pedestrian accident?
The first you should do after a pedestrian accident is go seek medical treatment immediately and follow the doctor’s orders. That gives you the best chance at recovery, hopefully a full recovery. The next thing you need to do is hire an attorney immediately. Part of the role of an attorney is to act as a detective and investigator and collect all the evidence. Evidence disappears and trails go cold. The attorney needs to find witnesses and talk to them as soon as possible. Lastly, you need to hire the right attorney. The right attorney is a person who focuses primarily on personal injury litigation. If they don’t focus on personal injury litigation, then they might not know everything with regards to the law. Beyond that, it’s important to hire someone who’s a trial attorney. A trial attorney is someone who prepares every case as if they’re going to trial.
