What’s Next after a San Francisco Pedestrian Crash
According to NHTSA, pedestrian accidents continue to rise in the United States. More pedestrians died in 2018 than in any year since 1990.
To avoid any involvement in such accidents, be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Driving defensively prepares you for emergencies.
It is also crucial that everyone remain calm to properly handle the immediate aftermath of a collision. Moreover, the most valuable step you can take in response to a crash is hiring a personal injury attorney.
