Why Are Pedestrian Accidents So Dangerous?

Pedestrian accidents are particularly dangerous due to several factors.

Pedestrians lack any physical protection when hit by a vehicle, making them vulnerable to serious injuries such as head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.

Pedestrians are smaller and lighter than vehicles, making them more likely to be thrown or dragged in an accident, exacerbating their injuries. Vehicles involved in pedestrian accidents often travel at high speeds, increasing the force of impact and the severity of injuries sustained.

Additionally, pedestrians can be difficult to see, especially at night or in bad weather, increasing the risk of accidents. Finally, pedestrians may be distracted or not paying attention to their surroundings, leading to them stepping into traffic or failing to react to an oncoming vehicle.

Given the high risks and potential for severe injuries or even fatalities, it’s crucial for both drivers and pedestrians to be aware of their surroundings and to follow traffic laws to help prevent pedestrian accidents from occurring.

What Damages Can I Seek Compensation For?

Some of the damages you can seek compensation for include:

  • Medical expenses — This includes any costs associated with medical treatment, hospitalization, medication, therapy, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost income — If your injuries prevent you from working, you may be able to seek compensation for lost wages, including future lost income if you are unable to return to work.
  • Pain and suffering — This refers to physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional distress resulting from the accident.
  • Property damage — If any of your personal property was damaged in the accident, such as your clothing or personal belongings, you may be able to seek compensation for repair or replacement costs.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life — If your injuries prevent you from participating in activities that you once enjoyed, you may be able to seek compensation for the loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Wrongful death — If a loved one was killed in a pedestrian accident, you may be able to seek compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of companionship.

Do I Really Need a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?

If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, it’s important to seek the advice and representation of an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer.

A lawyer can teach you how to file a personal injury claim, determine liability, and ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries and losses. They can also handle negotiating with insurance companies after the car accident and representing you in court if necessary.

Without a lawyer, you may be at a disadvantage when it comes to obtaining a fair settlement. Therefore, it’s highly recommended that you consult with a pedestrian accident lawyer to get the best possible case outcome.

I am a former New York State Judge. My wife was severely injured in an automobile accident. The Held firm took the case when others said, “There’s nothing here.” We settled for a sizeable amount due to the care, hard-work and diligence of all members of this firm.

This office was awesome. The lawyers and staff were so helpful with all my questions and getting me a great settlement. They always got back to me and they actually cared about me and my case. I never usually write a review, but I felt like these guys deserved a positive review for all of their efforts.

When should I contact a pedestrian accident lawyer?

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, it’s important to contact a pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the better your chances of receiving maximum compensation for your injuries.

How long does it take to resolve a pedestrian accident case?

The length of time it takes to resolve a pedestrian accident case can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the willingness of the insurance company to settle. Some cases can be resolved in a few months, while others can take several years to resolve.

Do I have to go to court for my claim?

In many cases, the insurance company may agree to a settlement without going to court, so you won’t have to go to court. However, if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, your case may need to go to court. If you go to court, your lawyer will represent and guide you through the entire process.
