Determining fault after a pedestrian accident will require gathering witness and police statements on the speed of the driver and the actions of both the driver and the pedestrian, and surveying the scene to note any signs, sidewalks, crosswalks, and traffic signals. An injured pedestrian should seek immediate medical attention after an accident even if they don’t believe they are injured because injuries can present themselves later after the initial shock of the accident has worn off. Insurance companies will often attempt to minimize injuries by arguing that because medical treatment was delayed, the injuries must not have been serious.
