In any city, pedestrians are at risk that a car will hit them while crossing the street. This may be every pedestrian’s worst nightmare, but after any accident, it is important to stay as calm as possible.
The city of Denver has a population of almost 700,000 people. Downtown is bustling with cars, buses, bikes, and pedestrians. Accidents happen, especially with the amount of people who call this city home.
Understanding the necessary steps to take after getting hit by a car will help alleviate some of the stress associated with an accident. If you are seriously injured, you may want to think about discussing your situation with a personal injury attorney.
If you or a loved one was hit by a car while crossing the street, call Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a 100% free case evaluation with our Denver pedestrian accident attorneys.
Seek Medical Attention
The first thing to do if you are involved in any accident is to seek medical attention right away. Call 9-1-1 if emergency services are necessary. Even if you do not need immediate medical attention, it is important to go to a doctor soon after the accident.
Injuries may worsen as time goes on, so it is critical to get checked out right away. Seeing a doctor soon after the accident will also help to document any injuries sustained in the accident. Documentation is critical in order to recover in a personal injury claim against the driver.
Get the Police Involved
It may be a good idea to get the police involved after the accident. They can create a police report of the incident that will help in your personal injury claim against the driver. Police can also take down statements of any witnesses.
Even if the accident is not that bad, document everything. Take pictures at the scene of the accident, including the driver’s license plate, car, and area where the accident occurred.
Make sure you retain documentation from any out-of-pocket expenses that are associated with your injuries.
Assess Your Damages
The value of your personal injury claim will be determined in part by the extent of your damages. Damages can take many forms, but they usually include out-of-pocket expenses associated with the accident, such as medical bills for treating your injuries as well as lost wages because you are not able to work.
Damages can also take the form of pain and suffering and emotional distress due to the accident. If you are not sure exactly how to measure your damages, you may want to consult a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney will be able to discuss your situation and give you a better idea of how much your claim may be worth.
