Most people forget that walking can be dangerous because a pedestrian accident can happen at any time. Thus, you must always be alert on the streets.
Make sure you follow the road and traffic signs, crossing paths that you are only legally allowed to traverse. Avoid jaywalking, so you do not get into an accident.
If you have been hit by a vehicle and become unconscious, calling for emergency medical services falls on the driver or other witnesses.
– What body parts feel pain? – Do you see any visual injuries with lacerations, abrasions, open wounds, etc? – Are there any areas with torn clothes?
Your insurance company and physical injury lawyer will require a police report of the accident.
Bear in mind, they can use anything you say on the scene or to an insurance adjuster against you if you sue or face any legal proceedings after the accident.
