Pedestrian Accidents in Nebraska
Sadly, thousands of pedestrians are injured or killed in accidents each
year, many of which are caused by the negligence of motorists. In 2010
alone, there were 4,280 pedestrian fatalities and another 70,000 pedestrians
injured in accidents. Many of these accidents could have been prevented
if the motorists had not been
driving while distracted or intoxicated, or operating their vehicles recklessly.

attorneys at The Robert Pahlke Law Group can help you seek fair compensation.

Compensation for Pedestrian Injuries
The large weight and speed of passenger vehicles and commercial trucks
can cause victims to suffer minor damage to
catastrophic injuries. After being struck by motor vehicles, pedestrians often sustain broken
bones, lacerations, back injuries, neck injuries, joint damage, organ
damage, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. Victims'
lives are affected in numerous other ways as well, and depending upon
the circumstances of your accident and the extent of your injuries,
your claim could seek to recover the following damages:
- Medical expenses, including medication, supplies, and rehabilitation
- The cost of future medical treatment for your injuries
- Wages lost during your recovery
- The loss of future earing capacity or wages, if you suffered permanent injuries
- The accident's impact upon your mental wellbeing and physical health
If you believe you have grounds to file a personal injury claim against
the driver who caused your pedestrian accident, don't wait to obtain
knowledgeable legal representation for your case.
