Anyone can be significantly injured in a vehicle accident whether the accident is involving a bike, a motorcycle, a traditional passenger vehicle, or a truck. However, pedestrians stand to have their lives changed in significant ways due to a vehicle accident, because pedestrians are not protected by any of the safety features inside a car or a truck. Pedestrians do not even have a helmet like a motorcycle rider or a cyclist. The exposure of a pedestrian to oncoming traffic can cause an individual to be thrown into traffic or projected onto stationary objects. The result of such violent impacts can cause a pedestrian to sustain life altering injuries.
If you find yourself to be the victim of a pedestrian accident, it is strongly recommended to get help from an experienced pedestrian accident attorney. An experienced Chula Vista pedestrian accident lawyer will direct you in the next steps. The right pedestrian accident lawyer will advise you about whether it makes sense to file a legal claim and he or she will lead you through the legal process of settling a claim. Do not wait to reach out for help- you only have a short period of time to file a legal claim, which could allow you to get your life back on track.

Pedestrian accidents can be caused by any situation in which a driver or another individual is negligent or reckless. However, there are several common situations that tend to cause pedestrian accidents over and over again. These include distracted drivers, fatigued or drowsy driving, drivers under the influence of drugs or anchohol and drivers who are reckless and negligent in their general driving behavior.
It does not matter how the accident happened, you have rights as an injured pedestrian. Your health insurance might not cover the full scope of the injuries you have sustained in a pedestrian accident, thus making it essential to identify an attorney who has experience in the field of pedestrian crashes. An experienced attorney will provide a legal perspective to help assist you with a full range of needs you may have after the accident occurs. Along with hiring an experienced attorney, it is very important to gather evidence from the scene of the accident.
To gather necessary evidence from the scene of the accident you must contact the authorities and file a police report. It is also strongly recommended to get immediate medical attention for your injuries. While at the scene of the accident, take down contact information for any witnesses who are willing speak about the situation. Take pictures and video evidence of the accident area. Pictures and videos can be important later on, as you may forget pertinent details of the crash. Any evidenced gathered can assist your attorney in reconstructing the scene of the accident and it help the attorney form a legal strategy.
Pedestrian accidents can run the gamut from minor scrapes and cuts to life altering paralysis. Your situation may be unique, thus making it very important to get medical help as soon as possible. Do not make the mistake of failing to call for medical attention or failing to go to the hospital because you believe that you feel fine.
Many individuals suffering from significant medical conditions such as a spinal cord injury, a traumatic brain injury, or whiplash may have these symptoms shielded by the adrenaline and shock that is a physical response to an accident. Make sure you have a medical professional look at you and complete any diagnostic tests to determine if you have been injured. Along with seeking professional medical attention, the right lawyer can help you in a situation when you have sustained significant injuries as the result of an accident.

When another driver is responsible for the injuries you have sustained, it is strongly recommended to hire a lawyer who will assist you with moving a case forward. Reaching out to a lawyer gives you the opportunity to get all of your questions answered. A lawyer will also help you determine whether it is in your best interests to move forward with a claim. You may be eligible to resolve your case outside of court using mediation or settlement techniques, but you also want a lawyer who will work aggressively on your behalf should the case go to trial.
