Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Understanding the common causes of pedestrian accidents is essential in establishing liability and building a strong legal case. Some of the common causes include:

  • Distracted Driving: With the prevalence of smartphones and other distractions, drivers may take their attention away from the road, leading to accidents involving pedestrians.
  • Speeding: Excessive speeds reduce reaction time, making it challenging for drivers to stop in time to evade colliding with pedestrians.
  • Failure to Yield: Drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians at crosswalks or intersections can result in severe accidents.
  • Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs greatly increases the risk of accidents, putting pedestrians at serious risk.
  • Poor Road Conditions: Inadequate signage, poorly marked crosswalks, and other road dangers can contribute to accidents involving pedestrians.

Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents can be devastating and life-altering. A pedestrian can suffer severe injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even death. If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident, you need a dedicated pedestrian accident lawyer to help you get the compensation you deserve.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Pedestrian Accident Claim?

Pedestrian accidents often result in a range of damages for victims. Seeking compensation for these damages is a critical aspect of the legal process. Potential damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents can lead to substantial medical bills. We work diligently to ensure that all current and future medical expenses are considered in the claim.
  • Lost Wages: Pedestrian accident victims may face extended recovery periods, preventing them from returning to work. Compensation for lost wages aims to alleviate the financial burden caused by the inability to earn an income.
  • Pain and Suffering: Physical injuries, emotional distress, and the overall impact on a person's quality of life can be considered in a claim for pain and suffering.
  • Property Damage: Pedestrian accidents may also damage personal property, such as clothing, bags, or electronic devices. Recovering costs for these damages is a key component of seeking compensation.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: Tragically, some pedestrian accidents lead to fatalities. In such cases, surviving family members may seek wrongful death damages, including funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional distress.
