Life-Changing Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

Whether a pedestrian accident occurs on the street, in a parking lot, or elsewhere, our law firm can investigate the case and help you seek fair compensation. Also, we are able to navigate any pedestrian accident lawsuit, regardless of the severity of our client’s injuries. Although, we tend to focus on claims involving catastrophic injuries because those cases require our professional assistance and insight more than those that involve minor injuries.

Pedestrians injured by motorists often report these injuries and more:

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Internal injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of limbs
  • Paralysis
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Wrongful death

Furthermore, the overall value of your claim will be affected by the severity of your injuries or how you have been affected by the loss of your loved one. The worse the injuries, the higher the value of a claim, typically. We will want to fight for full compensation that pays for medical costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, disability hardships, and more.

What Is the Most Common Cause of Injury to Pedestrians?

There are a number of forms of negligence that commonly lead to pedestrian accidents, including:

  • Driving while distracted or intoxicated
  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks
  • Failing to signal while turning
  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals

Other common causes of pedestrian accidents that do not necessarily indicate negligence on the driver's part include: poor visibility (especially at night) and pedestrians crossing the street improperly.

Do Pedestrians Always Have Right-of-Way?

Although pedestrians are said to “always have the right-of-way,” this is more of a colloquial tip to motorists than it is an actual law. Pedestrians must follow the rules of the road and do what they can to prevent an accident, just like everyone else. With this said, there are times when a pedestrian does not have the right-of-way.

Pedestrians do not have the right-of-way when:

  • Crossing the street when the crosswalk does not currently permit it.
  • Crossing the street without a crosswalk, especially when a crosswalk is available.
  • Entering the street suddenly and while vehicles are approaching.
  • Walking along a strict no-pedestrian zone, like most highways.

When working on your case, we will want to make sure that your liability is as low as possible, ideally down to 0%. To make this happen, we will have to investigate the accident and argue against any indications that you did not have the right of way.

We Can Help You Sue a Negligent Driver

Bringing a case against a negligent motorist that hit you while you were walking will not be easy. They are almost guaranteed to deny any wrongdoing because no one wants to be liable for hitting a pedestrian. They could even face criminal charges if it is determined that they were criminally negligent in how they operated their vehicle.

To prepare your case for anything, team up with our pedestrian accident attorneys in Detroit now. We take pride in winning difficult cases that other law firms do not want to attempt.
