What are the common causes of pedestrian injuries?

There are a number of different ways that pedestrian injuries can happen. For instance, inclement weather conditions, dangerous road conditions, or even negligent signage/defective crosswalk signs/traffic lights can result in devastating injuries. Keep in mind, however, that the most common cause of these injuries is driver negligence. Common forms of driver negligence include the following:

  • Drowsy driving
  • Distracted driving (i.e. eating, texting, or applying makeup while driving)
  • Driving through red lights
  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians
  • Injuries Commonly Sustained By Pedestrians

As you can see, the injuries pedestrians face are often devastating, and often permanent. Just some of the most typical injuries we see in collisions involving pedestrians include the following:

  • Spinal injuries/other injuries leading to paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Road rash
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones/sprains
  • Scarring
  • Loss of limb

Can I seek legal compensation for these injuries?

In order to win compensation in a pedestrian injury claim, you will have to collect and present evidence demonstrating that you were hurt by another party’s negligence. Our legal team will use copies of the police report filed at the scene, eyewitness testimony, pictures/videos of the incident, and more to fulfill the burden of proof. As long as we meet the burden of proof, you should obtain compensation to help you fare with the monetary and non-monetary damages you have sustained as a result of your injury. Do not wait to give our Harris County, Texas personal injury lawyer a call to get started. We are committed to ensuring you obtain the compensation you need to heal and move forward.
