Addressing Auto vs. Pedestrian Collisions

Pedestrians are clearly at a greater risk of serious injury because the human body is not equipped with safety equipment such as seatbelts and airbags. Drivers today are more distracted than they have ever been. Unfortunately, that means the trend of auto vs. pedestrian crashes is likely to continue rather than decrease. 

If you were injured in a pedestrian accident or lost a family member or other loved one, you need an injury attorney that will obtain the compensation you deserve from the insurance company.

How Do Most Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Occur?

As mentioned earlier, distracted driving often ends up being the leading cause behind a pedestrian getting hit by a car or other vehicle. Other factors include:

  • Failure to Yield the Right-of-Way
  • Speeding or Aggressive Driving
  • Impaired Driving
  • Poor Visibility
  • Failure to Ensure the Way is Clear When Backing Up
  • Failure to Stop for a School Bus
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Failure to Check Crosswalks for Pedestrians While Turning at Intersections
  • Mechanical Failures and Vehicle Malfunctions

Beware of an Offer for a Quick Settlement for Your Pedestrian Accident Claim

Insurance companies may try to push for a quick settlement to your claim with the hope that you will accept a much lower amount than your actual damages warrant. We protect our client by doing a thorough investigation of your accident and making sure your claim adds up to the full damages arising from your injuries—now and later on.

The negligent party should be held responsible for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Income
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Disfigurement or Scarring
  • Loss of Future Income
  • Rehabilitation and Assistive Devices
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Wrongful Death
