Pedestrians are no match for vehicles. Speeding vehicles, regardless of their size, can cause severe injury to pedestrians, resulting in broken bones, fractures, and traumatic injuries, including death. If you or a loved one has been injured as a pedestrian due to someone else’s negligence, contact a pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible.
Pedestrian ‘Knockdown’ Accident Causes
- Vehicles that do not yield the right of way to pedestrians
- Speeding vehicles
- Inattentive drivers
- Distracted driving
- Running traffic signals
- Impaired driving or driving while intoxicated
- Reckless driving
- Hit and run accidents
The law states that every driver shall exercise extreme caution to prevent a collision with a pedestrian.
Driver negligence is responsible for the majority of pedestrian accidents and a moment of distraction can result in a fatality on the road.
Pedestrian Accident Compensation
Pedestrians are able to legally recover compensation for their financial losses, property damages, and pain and suffering. Your attorney will set out to prove that the driver’s negligence caused your injuries and damages.
A fair compensation may be in the form of a negotiated settlement, an insurance claim settlement, or an award won in court following the resolution of a trial. Damages that a plaintiff may seek in a pedestrian accident lawsuit include:
- Ambulance costs
- Medical and hospital expenses
- Prescription costs
- Rehabilitation costs
- Transportation costs for medically related appointments
- Punitive damages
- Loss of current and future wages
- Pain and suffering
A pedestrian accident can change your life in an instant. The compensation you are awarded will go a long way in providing economic relief while you concentrate on healing from your injuries.
