What You Should Do If You Are Injured In A Pedestrian Accident

Often people only think of car accidents involving vehicles.  However, it has become more and more common to see accidents involving cars and pedestrians.  In fact, last year there were 451 pedestrian accidents in just Davidson and Rutherford County.  

Why Pedestrian Accidents Are So Dangerous

These cases involve all sorts of  accidents.  Frequently, they can involve accidents that happen at intersections, crosswalks, or to people pulling into or out of parking garages.  We have heard of accidents happening to people sitting on the sidewalk waiting to cross and a driver cuts the corner just a bit short and runs over the pedestrians feet, or worse.  These accidents are often much more serious than a car accident as the pedestrian has no protection and is at the mercy of the car.  

Take Pictures of the Scene Immediately

In Nashville especially, you have tourists walking in areas they are not used too or people driving in areas that are under construction which causes unknown hazards for pedestrians.  When you are injured in this type of accident, if you can take photos of the scene, we highly recommend that you do so.  If you cannot do it immediately at the time, have someone else photograph the area of the accident as soon as possible.  Things change fast in Nashville and Murfreesboro, and getting these photos can be vital to record exactly what the area looked like at the time of the accident.
