What You Need to Know About Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents in Birmingham and the state of Alabama are on the rise. According to a recent study by the nonprofit traffic research organization TRIP, pedestrian fatalities related to traffic accidents are up 18.4% from pre-pandemic levels in 2019.

When a reckless or distracted driver operates a vehicle, that vehicle’s safety technology protects the occupants, not the pedestrians, who are simply no match for the heavy machinery.

So, if you are in an accident involving another vehicle, follow these steps immediately afterward and contact a Birmingham accident lawyer.

Contact Authorities and the Proper Medical Professionals

Before leaving the scene, a victim should call 911 to file a police report and receive emergency medical treatment.

After the medical evaluation, we strongly recommend seeking follow-up treatment, including physical and psychiatric help, depending on the injury. The documents generated from your appointments, along with a police report, will provide crucial documentation and evidence to support your case.

Contact a Birmingham Pedestrian Lawyer

If you or a loved one have been struck by a vehicle and believe a third party is responsible, it is time to contact the Birmingham pedestrian lawyer best suited for your case.

Under Alabama law, you have only two years to file a claim. According to AL Code § 6-2-38,  actions must be brought “within two years of such injury or death.”
