Pedestrian Accidents And Driver Negligence

Although it is not necessarily true that pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way, the law expects drivers to recognize their vulnerability and take extra care when driving past. The cause of most pedestrian or bike accidents involving vehicles is driver negligence, including:

  • Driving while under the influence
  • Running a stop sign or red light
  • Driving too fast when children are present in the area
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Failure to look for pedestrians or bicycles in crosswalks
  • Distracted driving, including using a mobile device or texting

It is never acceptable for a car to strike a bicycle or a pedestrian with a motor vehicle regardless of the circumstances. Most cases involve driver negligence and could entitle the victim to compensation for their injuries.

What Financial Damages Can You Recover?

Regardless of the cause of the injuries, rely on our attorneys to complete a full investigation of the case. This will help determine whether or not there is a legal avenue to recover compensation for injuries.

Examples of common reasons to receive financial compensation for damages include:

  • Compensation for current and future medical expenses
  • Lost earnings or work wages
  • Loss of potential for future work earnings
  • Loss of parental or spousal support due to injuries
  • Compensation for pain and suffering

By no means is this an exhaustive list. Therefore, it is vital that anyone injured in an accident seek the services of an attorney for more information.
