It’s only appropriate for EMS crews to be automatically dispatched to any road incident involving pedestrians, simply because this type of accident almost always result in injuries. It’s also prudent to investigate these incidents as quickly as possible so that responsible parties can be brought to justice. These are obvious procedures/steps that follow pedestrian cases. What’s less apparent are the options that victims of these situations can explore and pursue.
