9 Steps to Take Immediately After A Pedestrian Accident in Los Angeles

It is tough to think clearly after being hit by a vehicle, let alone if you are injured. But what you say and do at the crash scene can significantly affect the outcome of a subsequent claim you file against the at-fault party. These tips may help you avoid doing something that could reduce the value of your personal injury claim:

  1. Call the police as soon as the accident occurs and ensure an officer creates an accident report.
  2. Take photos of your injuries, the scene of the accident, property damage, the weather conditions, the road conditions, and the vehicle that hit you.
  3. Take pictures of the at-fault driver’s license, insurance card, and license plate.
  4. Get the names and contact information of all eyewitnesses or anyone who may have seen anything.
  5. See a doctor or other healthcare professional immediately, and tell them about every affected part of your body.
  6. Keep a journal about your injuries and the recovery process, detailing how you feel, the treatment you receive, and what costs you pay.
  7. Do not speak to the insurance adjuster or accept a settlement offer until you talk to an experienced lawyer.
  8. Stay off social media and avoid posting about being in an accident or the circumstances of your accident.
  9. Contact California pedestrian accident lawyers as soon as possible to discuss your case.
