What to Do After Being Hit by a Car in the Crosswalk

If you are a pedestrian who has been hit by a car in the crosswalk, there are steps you should take to protect yourself and your rights. First, you should seek immediate medical attention, as the shock of being hit by a car can cause feelings that mask the pain of injuries.

If paramedics who respond to the scene of the accident want to transport you to the hospital, you should let them take you for treatment. If you do not require emergency medical care, you should visit an emergency room, an urgent care center, or your primary care physician as soon as possible and inform the doctor that you were involved in a pedestrian accident.

If you don’t seek prompt medical treatment, it will allow the driver and his or her insurance company to claim that you were not injured in the accident or that your injuries are not as serious as you claim. Some injuries such as concussions may not be obvious at first and may only be apparent to a trained health care provider.

You should try to gather evidence from the scene of the accident. If you are not physically able to do so, you can call an acquaintance to the scene or ask a police officer to share contact information for the other driver and his or her insurance.

Photos of the accident scene may provide important evidence. Try to capture the position of the vehicle that hit you and any damage to the vehicle, your visible injuries, the traffic controls at the scene of the accident, any fresh skid marks on the road, and the weather and road conditions.
