Pedestrian Accidents: Seeking Justice and Support

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents can occur due to various factors, often resulting from the negligence or recklessness of others. Understanding the common causes can help raise awareness and prevent future accidents. Some common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

Distracted Driving: In today’s digital age, distracted driving has become a significant concern. Drivers who engage in activities such as texting, talking on the phone, or using in-car technology divert their attention from the road, putting pedestrians at risk.

Failure to Yield: Many pedestrian accidents occur when drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians at crosswalks or intersections. Failing to acknowledge pedestrians’ right to safely navigate roadways can have severe consequences.

Speeding: Excessive speeding not only increases the risk of accidents but also reduces the time drivers have to react to pedestrians. Higher speeds significantly impact the severity of injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents.

Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or prescription medication impairs a driver’s judgment, reaction time, and ability to perceive pedestrians. Impaired drivers pose a significant threat to pedestrians on the road.

Failure to Obey Traffic Laws: Disregarding traffic signals, stop signs, or other traffic regulations can have dire consequences for pedestrians. Drivers who ignore these laws put vulnerable pedestrians at an increased risk of accidents.

What Type of Damages Can I Recover in a Pedestrian Accident Case?

If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may be eligible to recover various types of damages to compensate for your losses. These can include:

Medical Expenses: Pedestrian accidents often result in severe injuries, requiring immediate medical attention and ongoing treatment. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, including hospital bills, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and therapy.

Lost Wages: Serious pedestrian accidents can lead to extended recovery periods, causing you to miss work and lose income. You may be able to recover lost wages, including future earning potential if your injuries result in long-term or permanent disability.

Pain and Suffering: Pedestrian accidents can cause significant physical pain, emotional distress, and a diminished quality of life. Compensation for pain and suffering is aimed at addressing these non-economic damages and acknowledging the impact the accident has had on your well-being.

Property Damage: If personal property, such as clothing or personal belongings, was damaged or destroyed in the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repair or replacement.

Rehabilitation and Therapy Costs: Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may require rehabilitation, physical therapy, or counseling. Compensation can be sought to cover these necessary treatments and aid in your recovery.
