Pedestrian Accidents Cause Serious Injury
Accidents involving a motor vehicle and a pedestrian may cause severe injuries to the head, neck, brain, and spinal cord, and may lead to broken bones, the loss of limbs, paralysis, and even death. When the accident is caused by the negligent or reckless actions of the driver, the injured pedestrian can seek compensation from the responsible party.
Our attorneys represent clients injured in pedestrian accidents caused by:
- Distracted driving
- Failure to yield to pedestrian right of way
- Failure to obey traffic signals
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
You may be able to recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages related to your accident. Economic damages include the monetary losses that resulted from the accident, such as medical bills, anticipated future medical care needs, rehabilitation, and lost wages. Non-economic damages include compensation for the pain you have suffered due to the accident, such as emotional trauma and pain and suffering.
Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car Pedestrian Accident?
While pedestrians have the right of way on the road, it doesn’t mean that they can’t be found at least partially responsible for a car pedestrian accident. Some of the most common situations where a pedestrian can be found at fault are if:
- A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
- A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
- A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed
