Question: What should I do if I was hit by a car while walking?
If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian in Washington in a car accident case, what you want to do is, at the very least is be able to track down the license plate number of the driver. I know that’s probably not your first priority, but it will become exceedingly difficult to track down that person unless you have at least a license plate.The second thing you want to do is seek medical attention. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may need to go to the emergency room, but if you don’t, at least go to a primary care or walk-in clinic within the next day to document your injuries and that they were the result of a pedestrian accident in Washington.
The third thing you want to do is hire an attorney sooner rather than later. There’s a lot of good work we can do at the very outset of your case while the evidence is still fresh, and we want to be sure to be able to track down witnesses and statements and insurance while that information is still easy to gather.
