What do You do After You've Been Hit By a Car?

Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents can occur just about anywhere, whether you are crossing the street legally, walking past a driveway, or are in a parking lot. By knowing what to do immediately following your accident, you can save yourself some time and expenses in the future:

  • Seek medical attention. If you’ve been struck by a vehicle, it’s important that you seek medical attention and call for an ambulance, so you don’t need to make any unnecessary movements. Even if you don’t feel any pain in the moment, your injuries may appear later on, which is why you need to be seen by a doctor who can detect any injuries.
  • Contact the police. It’s also necessary to call law enforcement to the scene. Officers that respond to car accidents are required to file crash reports, which you can obtain a copy of and use as evidence in your claim.
  • Gather evidence if possible. If you’re unable to collect any evidence at the scene of your accident, a pedestrian accident lawyer in Greenville can help.

Our team has the resources we need to strengthen your claim. We know reconstruction experts who can help us investigate the accident and determine liability, and we know to gather crash reports, medical records, witness testimonies, and more to prove that your injuries were directly caused by the negligent driver.

What Is the Typical Settlement for Someone that was Hit by a Car?

While there is no average dollar amount when it comes to personal injury settlements, our attorneys can help you determine how much compensation you should ask for based on a few different things:

  1. What medical bills you have been forced to pay as a result of your injuries
  2. Whether you have been forced to miss work due to your injuries
  3. If you will suffer permanent disability as a result of being struck by the car
  4. If the driver of the car demonstrated severe negligence or malice in hitting you
  5. Pain and suffering that you may have experienced as a result of your injuries

We will take all of these factors into account when determining what a fair settlement would be for your claim, and we will then fight to get you every penny you deserve.
