Who's to Blame?

Pedestrian Accident Causes

Pedestrian accidents in Buffalo are no rarity; in fact, they occur virtually every single day of the year. Most auto accidents, however, are avoidable and occur only when one or more motorists behave negligently. Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents are as follows:

 

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Dim lighting
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Driving while tired

After a Pedestrian Accident

If you were struck as a pedestrian, the first thing you need to do is dial 911. Law enforcement will arrive at the scene, give you any necessary on-the-spot medical treatment, and write up an accident report. You should also ask witnesses for their contact information and take pictures of anything relevant to your accident. Once you’re treated in a hospital and get copies of all relevant medical documentation, you should hire a Buffalo pedestrian accident lawyer who can file a personal injury claim on your behalf.

It was a very long and sometimes difficult process, but in the end it all came as a great relief, as if a heavy burden had been lifted from my back.

Your Initial Consultation

An accident of any kind is devastating, but fortunately, most accidents leave a trail of evidence behind that a skilled personal injury lawyer can use to prove a future personal injury claim. If possible, you should do what you can to document your accident and then bring all relevant information to your initial consultation with our firm. This can include:

  • Pictures or videos of your accident
  • Witness statements/contact information
  • Your insurance information
  • The other party’s insurance information
  • Any record of correspondence you may have had with the other party’s insurance company
  • Any history you have had with filing personal injury claims in the past
  • Medical documentation and bills associated with your injuries

File Today

The moment you’re injured in an accident, the clock starts ticking on your personal injury claim. New York State has a statute of limitations in place, which means that if you wait too long to bring a claim, you’ll likely permanently lose your right to do so. This is why it’s paramount that you retain the services of a competent personal injury lawyer as soon after the date of your accident as you can.
