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.

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.
