Steps to take if you are an Injured Pedestrian

Pedestrian accidents can range from minor to life changing, based on a variety of factors such as how fast the car was moving. While Massachusetts law typically favors the pedestrian in this type of accident, there are many details that go into deciding whether or not you have a case.

If you are injured as a pedestrian, there are two basic steps you need to take:

  • Seek immediate medical attention even if you don’t believe you have been seriously injured. There is nothing more important than your health.
  • Gather as much information as possible regarding your accident. This can include: insurance information, medical records, names of witnesses, and police reports.

Are you confused as to what you should and should not be doing? If so, you need to contact a personal injury attorney with experience in pedestrian accident cases. Your legal team can explain the law and help protect your rights.

Note: don’t delay in contacting an attorney as the Massachusetts statute of limitations does apply to these cases.

If you are an injured pedestrian and feel that you are in position to receive compensation for your injuries, let an attorney guide you along the way.
