What Are the Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 150,000 pedestrians are injured in traffic accidents each year. It is estimated that one crash-related pedestrian death occurs every two hours. While these horrific collisions can result from a nearly endless number of different circumstances, many of these accidents involve some sort of driver negligence.
Pedestrian accidents can be caused by any of the following:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Running stop signs
- Failing to check blind spots
- Failing to yield
- Hit and run
- Swerving onto sidewalks
What Compensation Can I Recover?
If it can be proven that your accident was the result of another driver’s careless actions, you may be able to pursue monetary compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. The other driver will likely be represented by an insurance defense attorney and may attempt to place blame on you for the accident in order to minimize your eligible compensation. Our firm can negotiate with the involved insurance companies and use our vast legal knowledge to pursue a fair settlement on your behalf.
We can help you recover the following damages:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Rehabilitation costs
- Property damage
