Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can unfortunately occur at any time. Whether one is crossing the street or simply walking beside it, the dangers of roadside travel can be significant. Sometimes, pedestrian-involved incidents occur just due to the negligence of the vehicle’s operator. Other times, distracted driving or driving while under the influence can cause reaction time to plummet and unfortunate errors in judgement to occur. Whatever the reason, a Calgary injury lawyer like Timothy Dunlap will fight for your rightful settlement.
The injuries that might occur after a roadside incident are numerous. They involve head injuries like concussions or traumatic brain injuries as well as bodily harm, including broken bones, internal bleeding, fractures and much more. These injuries may completely change a person’s way of life as they learn to operate a wheelchair, adjust to different mobility limitations or participate in rehabilitation. Furthermore, these injuries can affect emotional wellness as time off work may be necessary, and the event could impact our relationships. These changes are among the many reasons why motorcycle accident lawyers in Calgary perform such a helpful service.
What to Do Following an Accident
Immediately following an accident, you should check yourself for injuries. Next, get to safety and contact emergency services. While you wait, exchange the relevant contact and insurance information of those involved. Document the accident as best as possible with pictures, time-related information and witness statements. Once emergency services arrive, receive a check-up from the paramedics. At no point should you admit fault, as the insurers will determine this. Your final step should be contacting Dunlap Injury Law.
