"What should I do after a pedestrian accident in Worcester?"
We strongly recommend taking the following steps if you or loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident in Worcester:
- Call the police - Even if your accident seems minor, it's critical that you have the police investigate. Worcester police know what evidence to look for after an accident. They know what questions to ask. That way, you'll have an official report after your accident, something insurance companies often look at very carefully when determining how much to compensate you.
- See a doctor - Even if you feel fine, don't try to diagnose yourself. Leave it to the professionals. You could have a life-threatening internal injury. And if you don't receive medical treatment immediately, your life could be in danger. By having a doctor examine you, you'll also create an official record of your injuries. That way, you can prove you were hurt when trying to obtain compensation for your accident.
- Talk to witnesses - Worcester is a big city. Odds are someone saw your accident. If they did, have someone get the witness' full name, address and phone number. That way, you or your attorney can reach them in the future if they want to know exactly what happened.
- Take photographs - Either you or someone you trust should take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, damage to the vehicle - anything that you think might be important. Details help build strong legal cases.
