What To Do After a Marietta Pedestrian Accident
Being struck by a car while walking can be traumatizing. You may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next after being hit.
First, call 911 and seek medical attention. Even if you feel “OK,” you may have suffered injuries such as a concussion or internal bleeding that could be life-threatening if left untreated. Making sure you are taken care of is the top priority.
Then focus on documenting your injuries and the care you received.
Take as many photos and videos as possible of the scene: your injuries, the other vehicle, and anything else you may find relevant.
Identify the parties involved. Try to get the other driver’s name and insurance information. You can also reach out to any witnesses who may have seen the accident happen or may have video surveillance from nearby businesses or homes.
Reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney. You will only have two years to get your claim filed before the statute of limitations expires. The sooner we can start building your pedestrian accident case, the stronger your odds of being awarded maximum restitution for your suffering.
What Are Your Rights As A Pedestrian?
When another party’s negligence or misconduct is the cause of a pedestrian accident and resulting injuries, you may be able to pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit. Keep in mind; there may be multiple insurance policies that apply. For example, an injured pedestrian’s own uninsured motorist coverage or a resident relative’s policy may be liable, so it is crucial to identify and alert all the appropriate insurance companies after an accident.
You have the right to be made whole. This means that you should be repaid for every single loss you have suffered because of the liable party’s negligent actions. You will need a pedestrian accident attorney to help navigate the often-complex pedestrian accident claims process.

Can Pedestrians Be at Fault for an Accident?
Many pedestrians are worried about how their case will be affected if they share responsibility for causing the accident. For example, maybe you were crossing the road without utilizing the crosswalk.
Georgia is a modified comparative fault state.
This means as long as you are 49% or less at fault, you can still be awarded compensation. But you should expect your award to be reduced proportionally. If you were 25% liable for your injuries, you could expect your settlement to be reduced by 25%.
