Common Causes of Pedestrian Car Accidents

Usually, except in very limited circumstances, pedestrians have the right of way. Automobile drivers are responsible for yielding to pedestrians who lawfully cross the street. However in some pedestrian car accident cases, drivers do not properly yield and cause injuries to occur. All too often, pedestrians are struck by negligent or distracted drivers who do not have the right of way. In worst cases, pedestrians are struck by drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Please see our drunk driving page for more information about accidents involving the use of drugs or alcohol.

Negligence behind the wheel can take a variety of different forms including, but not limited to:

  • Aggressive Driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failing to signal
  • Failure to yield
  • Distracted Driving
  • Improper passing
  • Not having lights on
  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving

Unfortunately, drivers involved in pedestrian car accidents cause serious harm to people walking on the road. Drivers typically sustain less damages compared to the people they injure in a car accident. Besides common injuries in car accidents such as, cuts, scrapes and bruises, more serious injuries can occur, such as broken bones, head/neck injuries, and even death in worst case scenarios.

Unfortunately, sometimes after a pedestrian has been struck by a vehicle, the driver of that vehicle flees the scene. This is typically referred to a hit and run accident.

Call the police and make sure an ambulance is sent as soon as possible. Make sure everyone involved in the accident is conscious and responsive. Stay at the scene even if the accident isn’t serious, the police should be called regardless and a police report should be filed. It is important when speaking to the police that you stick to the facts, do not speculate, and most importantly do not admit any fault. Make sure you take as many pictures as you can with your cell phone. Also, we suggest taking a picture of the other person’s license plate, their drivers license, and insurance information. The pictures should document any damage that is caused by both vehicles. Seek medical attention as soon as possible if injured, even if you do not feel any pain, you may be in a state of shock and could experience medical issues later on.
After a car accident, it is important to collect as much information as possible. Document the names, addresses, license plates of any other vehicle involved in the accident. Either document the weather conditions at the time of the accident or take pictures of the scene surrounding the accident. If you believe that road maintenance or lack thereof was a factor in the accident – it is important to document this as well. After your immediate medical injuries have been taken into account, it is then time to speak with a lawyer immediately. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the more time you will have to successfully prepare a personal injury case. The team at Kats, Jamison & Associates will analyze your car/motorcycle accident and determine whether or not you have a claim. Through this process we will make sure to protect your rights and guard you from predatory insurance company practices.
If you are experiencing pain, injury, or financial damages as a result of someone else’s negligence. You may have a personal injury case. If the other driver was at fault or failed to follow the legal rules of the road – our car accident attorneys may be able to prove that the other party is liable for those damages. For example, if you were rear-ended in a car accident, typically the other driver is responsible for that accident and the insurance company could be liable for any damages
Within the first few days, you will receive communications from both your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company. You may be contacted by your health insurance company, doctors, and even attorneys. The other driver’s insurance company may request that you sign medical authorizations so they can retrieve your medical records. Before you speak to any of these people or sign any documents, it is important that you seek legal counsel.
You may have a difficult time paying for your medical expenses, even if you have health insurance. Make sure to bill any treatment as you normally would through your healthcare provider. Additionally, you may have medical payment coverage under your car insurance plan. This could be used to cover your co-pays and other medical expenses that your health insurance company may not cover initially.
This is a difficult question to answer because it depends on many factors. If we are successful in proving that the other party is liable for your injuries and damages, you could be compensated for medical bills and any other hospital costs, lost wages, costs of rehabilitation and physical therapy, disability or disfigurement, pain and suffering, wrongful death, including loss of financial support and any other out of pocket expense that was related to your accident.
Depending on the severity of your injuries and the length of time you need to heal from your injuries will determine the length of your claim. We also have to factor in the willingness of the other party to settle as they make their initial offer. If unreasonable offers are made, your claim may proceed to trial, which will increase the length of your claim.
