What Should You Do If You Have Been Hurt In A Pedestrian Accident?
If you are hurt in an accident, you should seek medical care promptly, within the first 24 hours or shortly thereafter. Visit a nearby hospital Emergency Room or your family doctor. If you need a specialist, you may want to ask your family doctor for a referral. Keep in mind that the longer you wait to get medical attention when you need it, the easier it will be for an insurance company to argue you weren't hurt in the accident. Once you visit a doctor, follow his advice.
- Comply with all of his directives.
- Take the medicine he prescribes according to the directions on the bottle.
- If your doctor refers you to a specialist or physical therapist, schedule an appointment immediately.
- Keep all medical appointments. If you can't make an appointment, call to cancel it and schedule a new appointment immediately. You don't want the words "No Show" to appear on your medical chart.
- Return to work as soon as your doctor says you can. If you have reservations about your ability to go back to work given the nature of your job or its requirements (repetitive heavy lifting, for example) discuss the specifics with your doctor or bring your concerns to your lawyer's attention promptly.

The experienced lawyers at the Allen Law Firm have a long history of working with clients whose injuries in pedestrian accidents range from modest to catastrophic. A few years ago, Allen & Allen attorneys were asked to represent the family of a resident of Buena Vista, Virginia. The plaintiff was crossing a local street within the crosswalk when she was struck by a Greyhound bus. She died of her accident-related injuries three months after the accident leaving a husband and two grown children. A local jury returned a verdict against Greyhound in the amount of $3.7 million.
In another case, the plaintiff was walking on the grass in front of a paved residential parking area when the defendant failed to properly park his vehicle nearby. The vehicle moved onto the grass and rolled onto plaintiff's right leg and ankle causing significant injury to her ankle. Her attorney took her case to trial and won a $125,000 verdict for her.
