In case of a pedestrian accident who is impacted by a vehicle and becoming injured, it is crucial to get medical help quickly, even if you feel at the moment that pain is not significant. Adrenaline and shock combined can easily distract someone from realizing that they may have suffered grave injuries. It is beneficial to report the accident to the police and obtain the driver’s, vehicle, and insurance information. In the event that there are witnesses of the accident, it is a great help to obtain their contact information. Taking pictures of the scene can also be very valuable in the event that the victim needs to open a claim.
