Pedestrian Accidents

All drivers are responsible for obeying all traffic laws, including yielding to pedestrians when they have the right-of-way. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents occur because drivers either do not see people crossing streets or they do not understand who has the right-of-way.

Being hit by a vehicle can alter the course of your life in just a few seconds. These accidents can result in injuries such as fractures (broken bones), head injuries, various back & neck injuries and even death. The courts may award financial compensation to victims of accidents caused by the negligence of others. Our team of dedicated personal injury lawyers will work tirelessly to help you make a monetary recovery for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of income, disfigurement, and any other losses sustained in the accident.

If you or a loved one was injured in a pedestrian accident involving a vehicle, let us help you determine whether you have a legitimate case.

Pedestrian accidents can happen when drivers not careful in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Failing to yield for pedestrians in crosswalks
  • Backing out of parking spaces in parking lots
  • Speeding in residential areas where there are children playing
  • Turning right on a red light, and not looking for pedestrians in the crosswalk
  • Talking on a cell phone or texting on a mobile device

Common Types of Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

Even a small, compact car is bigger and weighs much more than a person. Even at a slow speed, the chance for injury is great. It is not uncommon for pedestrians who have been hit by cars to suffer:

  • Broken bones
  • Concussion or other head injury
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Herniated disc in neck or back
  • Nerve damage
  • Dislocated joints or limbs
  • Painful soft tissue injuries
  • Cuts, scrapes and bruises
  • Paralysis or death

Some of these types of injuries can take a considerable amount of time to heal. Some may result in permanent damage that affects your ability to work or perform simple tasks for the rest of your life.

Recovering Damages

An experienced personal injury lawyer will discuss with you not only your existing medical bills, but what costs you expect to incur for future treatment or therapy, and whether you’ve lost income or will lose future income as a result of your injuries. Other types of damages you may be able to recover include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of normal life, and disability and disfigurement. Your attorney’s goal will be to convince the driver’s insurance company or a jury to compensate you for all of those costs or as much as is possible given the limits of the driver’s insurance coverage.
