“It is dangerous to be a pedestrian these days—auto accidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists are shockingly common,” says The Jones Firm, a law firm based in Bellevue, WA that focuses on auto accident, personal injury, and wrongful death cases.
Their recently released article says that a recent survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed over 60,000 accidents involving pedestrians occurred in a single year.
In their article they provide legal advice on how to proceed following an auto and pedestrian or bicyclist accident.
They emphasize that remaining calm and collected is very important in being able to, first, move everyone to safety and contact the legal and medical providers. Additionally, staying calm and truthfully answering all questions from the police and their individual insurance agent is vital.

Following the day of the accident, The Jones Firm explains that communicating regularly with their insurance company and their auto accident or personal injury attorney will be important.
Because of the frequently serious effects of a pedestrian and auto accident, typically on the part of the pedestrian, there is usually a long legal process that will follow. Proper medical examinations, claims, and establishing of responsibility will usually be a complex and lengthy procedure.
“An accident involving pedestrians is a truly traumatic experience for everyone,” says The Jones Firm, “While in some cases, it may be entirely the fault of the driver, it may be the fault of the pedestrian—or a combination of both. Sorting out the fault and responsibility for damage and injuries is a difficult and complex task and one that you shouldn’t set out on alone.”
