Proving liability For Pedestrian Accident in Austin Texas

If you can prove liability for the accident in which you were injured, you may be entitled to recover “damages from the at-fault driver. Damages refer to compensation for financial losses, such as the cost of your medical treatment and any loss of income that you have suffered. 

In addition, if you can prove that the other party is liable, you may also be entitled to recover damages for every negative experience that you had to endure because of the wrongdoer’s carelessness. In the legal industry, we commonly refer to these negative experiences as “pain and suffering.” 

This issue of proving who is at fault is called by lawyers the liability issue. To prove liability, an early, prompt, and effective investigation must be performed. 

What to do After a Pedestrian Accident in Austin

If you were seriously injured, the police will come to the scene of the accident, perform an investigation, and draft a report. When that report is available, you should definitely get a copy of it, but we recommend that you do the following as well:

Write Down Everything

As soon as you can do so, write down and record every fact that you can think of about the accident:

  1. Where did it happen? 
  2. When did it happen? 
  3. Why did it happen 
  4. Who was involved? 

Write down every fact you can think of, and hold on to those records as they will be vital to your pedestrian accident claim.

Take Video and Photographs

Videos and photographs of the scene of your accident are critically important. Take photos and video footage of the scene of the accident and your injuries. 

Also, look for any other video recording of the accident itself. Perhaps there were traffic cameras that saw and recorded the incident. Maybe security videos from local businesses recorded the accident. 

It is even possible that public transportation, such as a bus with onboard cameras, might have recorded your accident. Identify any such sources of evidence, get copies, and hold on to those as well. 

Identify Eyewitnesses

Identify eyewitnesses, collect their contact information, and get their statements. Eyewitness testimony is one of the strongest forms of evidence that can be presented to establish fault for the accident and your injuries.

Hire an Experienced Austin Pedestrian Accident Lawyer to Assist You

Pedestrian accident claims are rarely routine injury claims, and we typically advise pedestrian accident victims to, at the very least, consult with a qualified pedestrian accident lawyer before going it alone. 

If you have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, you will most certainly need the assistance of a skilled attorney to ensure that you recover all the compensation that you are entitled to receive. In addition to a qualified and experienced pedestrian accident attorney, the assistance of an accident reconstruction expert may also be necessary, or at least helpful. 

If you elect to hire an experienced Austin personal injury attorney (like the ones at our law firm), your lawyer will ensure that your pedestrian accident claim is investigated promptly and thoroughly, and will have access to the types of expert witnesses and accident reconstructionists needed to testify in your case.
