Pedestrian Accidents

Each of us is a pedestrian at some point on any given day. We’re pedestrians when we cross the street, stroll down a sidewalk, or hail a ridesharing vehicle. Unfortunately, this regularity also means we are more often at risk of being involved in a pedestrian accident than we would like to think.

If you have suffered injuries as a result of a pedestrian accident due to a negligent driver, a good attorney helps put your life back on track. Call our experienced personal injury team for a free consultation and the settlement you deserve.

Common Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are open to a variety of potential personal injury accidents on a daily basis. Many of these accidents are, by their very nature, unexpected as they are often the product of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The most common pedestrian accidents result from collisions with automobiles and their inattentive drivers. These accidents can be caused by:

  • Distracted driving — when the person behind the wheel is on their phone or eating instead of paying attention to the road
  • Unmarked intersections — where no clear delineated crosswalk is available for reference by oncoming drivers
  • Alcohol impairment — on the part of either driver or pedestrian, account for 48% of crashes resulting in the death of a pedestrian
  • Hybrid vehicles — whose battery-operated systems make it impossible for pedestrians to hear one navigating a turn
  • Left-hand turns — often a result of the driver and pedestrian looking in different directions when the turn is made

Common Injuries In a Pedestrian Accident

Injuries as a result of a pedestrian accident can range from mild to severe, especially involving a vehicle at high speed or with a drunk driver behind the wheel. These injuries can include:

  • Abrasions
  • Cuts
  • Pelvic injury
  • Head trauma
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal injury
  • Soreness
  • Stiffness
  • Broken bones
