What Causes Pedestrian Accidents?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost half of crashes that result in a pedestrian death involve alcohol and/or the pedestrian. Drinking and driving is illegal in all 50 states and frequently leads to fatal traffic accidents.

Other common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

Drivers should watch for pedestrians at all times, and they have a duty to drive carefully, follow traffic rules, and keep their eyes on the road. They must also take extra care at crosswalks or in school zones, where pedestrians and children may be present.

If someone harms you because they failed to uphold this basic duty of care, our Starke pedestrian accident lawyers are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

When cars and pedestrians collide, only the driver has the protection of a passenger vehicle. Pedestrians take the brunt of the impact, which is why pedestrian accidents often result in injury or death.

The most common pedestrian injuries we see at our firm include:

If you are harmed in a pedestrian accident, call 911 immediately. Seek medical treatment as soon as possible, even if you do not feel injured right away.
Once you understand the extent of your injury, discuss your situation with our Starke pedestrian accident attorneys.

Types of Damages You Can Recover

Getting hit by a car usually requires time in the hospital and time away from work. These expenses can quickly stack up and cause financial stress for you and your family.
A successful personal injury lawsuit can help you recover compensatory damages to account for all costs associated with the accident, including those that are harder to measure.

Compensatory damages include:

In some cases, such as those where drivers were under the influence or extremely negligent, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. These damages punish the wrongdoer and provide you with additional financial support as you recover.
Rest assured, our pedestrian accident lawyers will fight tooth and nail for full and fair compensation.
