What Should a Pedestrian do After Getting Hit by a Car?
After an accident, it's important to immediately call the police. You can file a police report, which may help your case against the driver and/or vehicle owner. Then, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you don’t believe your injuries are serious, a doctor will be able to independently evaluate the injuries you may have sustained and recommend treatment. Finally, document everything at the scene. Take photos of the vehicle that hit you and collect the contact information of the driver that hit you and any witnesses at the scene.
