Important factors for pedestrian-vehicle accidents

As pedestrians, people are more likely to sustain serious injury in an accident. Thankfully, when it is not the pedestrian's fault, it is possible to seek compensation through a personal injury claim.

Someone who is considering filing a claim should understand the different elements the process entails. There are a few important factors to consider in regard to pedestrian-vehicle accidents.

Evidence

One of the essential factors to consider after any accident is the preservation of evidence. If there is any visible damage, it is good to take photos. In the case of a pedestrian accident, the pedestrian should photograph any visible injuries and collect many medical records regarding treatment.

With any traffic collision, it is customary for the parties to exchange information, and it is no different when a vehicle strikes a pedestrian. If there are any witnesses, it is a good idea to collect their information as well. In fact, if possible, parties should gather a written testimony at the scene. If not, it is important to collect it as soon as possible, so that hopefully witnesses do not forget key details.

Negligence

The state of New York works very hard to support the safety of pedestrians. Considering the number of commuters in the city, this is a valid concern, and as such, the laws are very clear as to the responsibility of pedestrians and drivers. When drivers do not exercise the proper amount of care, and their failure results in an accident that leads to damages, they are negligent in that instance. The right evidence can help to support negligence claims, and a knowledgeable attorney may be a strong asset in presenting the case.

These are the main factors to consider in a pedestrian-vehicle accident. However, depending on the circumstances, there may be additional things to keep in mind.
