5 Steps In A Pedestrian Accident

slide 2:

Many people tend to think that if you are not in your car then you are not covered by insurance. This simply is not true. If you are a pedestrian and you are hit by a car then the car insurance does cover pedestrians. If you are a pedestrian and you are injured after being hit by a car then you deserve just as much compensation as if you were in another car.

If you or a loved one is suffering from an injury after getting hit by a car while walking then take a look at our 5 steps on what to do if you are in a pedestrian accident: Seek Help Talk To Authorities Seek witnesses Call an Attorney Keep Medical Records

If you have been hit by a car and they choose to commit a hit and run then you need to alert someone for help immediately. If you are able to then call 911. If not then yell for someone to do so. If you were hit and the driver stayed then encourage the driver to call for help if you are not able.
