How Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?
Pedestrian accidents are rarely the fault of the pedestrian. Instead, motorists who are not paying enough attention when driving near pedestrians are often to blame for a pedestrian accident. For example, a distracted driver is far more likely to hit a pedestrian who has lawfully entered the road to cross or reach their own vehicle. Speeding drivers also pose a serious threat to pedestrians, including those on the side of the road.
Where Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?
Locations where pedestrian accidents tend to happen the most include:
- Crosswalks: Crosswalk intersections are common locations for pedestrian accidents because it is where most pedestrians enter the street.
- Parking lots: A driver who is racing through a parking lot might crash right into someone who is approaching or leaving a building attached to the lot.
- Residential streets: Anywhere that kids play in the street or where people go for nightly walks around the block is at a heightened risk of a pedestrian accident caused by a negligent driver.
- Rural roads: Surprisingly, many pedestrian accidents happen along rural roads due to a lack of lighting and crosswalks.
Common Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents
There is very little chance that a pedestrian will not be severely injured when hit by a car. Without the metal frame of a vehicle around them, there is no way to mitigate the impact and the damage. Paramedics responding to pedestrian accident calls know to expect the worst.
Pedestrian accident victims often suffer these life-changing injuries:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Broken bones
- Permanent scarring
Compensation You Can Receive Through Your Claim
How much money should you be provided by the driver who hit you? It depends on the severity of your injuries, how much pain you have endured, and what has changed in your life due to the accident. When you work with our attorneys, you can be confident that your case is pursuing the most amount of compensation because we know how to carefully calculate our clients’ damages. Leaving behind even a single penny is unacceptable in our minds.
Compensation you might get from a pedestrian accident claim includes:
- Lifetime medical care
- Lost wages
- Reduced ability to earn income
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Lowered enjoyment of life
Be Prepared for Anything the Opposition Tries
You can be certain that the driver and their insurance company will not be on your side or looking out for you when you file your claim against them. They will want to deny liability and use any tactic available to defeat your case. Be ready for their strategies by relying on the strength of our pedestrian accident attorneys in Pontiac.
