Causes of Pedestrian Injuries

Pedestrian injuries can occur for several reasons. For example, inclement weather conditions, dangerous road conditions, or even negligent signage/defective crosswalk signs/traffic lights can lead to devastating injuries. However, the most common cause of these injuries is driver negligence. Common forms of driver negligence are as follows:

  • Driving through red lights
  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Distracted driving (e.g. eating, texting, or applying makeup while driving)
  • Driving while tired
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians

Injuries Commonly Sustained By Pedestrians

As you can imagine, the injuries pedestrians sustain are frequently devastating, and often permanent. Just some of the most common injuries we see in collisions involving pedestrians are as follows:

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

Getting Your Compensation

To win compensation in a pedestrian injury claim, we’ll have to gather and present evidence proving that you were injured by another party’s negligence. We will use copies of the police report filed at the scene, eyewitness testimony, pictures/videos of the incident, and more to satisfy the burden of proof. As long as we satisfy the burden of proof, you should receive compensation to help you cope with the monetary and non-monetary damages you’ve incurred as a result of your injury.
