A pedestrian is injured every 8 minutes in the United States. As a Sacramento Pedestrian Accident attorney for many years, I have handled hundreds of pedestrian injury cases.
In every case, a quick investigation of the scene is necessary. The accident scene may have tire tracks that show the vehicle’s direction of travel, skid marks as well as debris that can show the point of impact. There may be parts of the car still present such as broken headlights or mirrors and these should be collected. Road markings should be measured and photographed.
