Why do pedestrian accidents occur? Driver negligence is the primary cause of car-pedestrian accidents. Drivers distracted while changing the radio, eating, talking on the phone or even texting are just a few reasons a tragic accident may occur. Add a pedestrian walking or running along a narrow roadway and the chance of injury increases greatly.
Causes of Pedestrian Accidents:
- Drunk driving;
- Running red lights;
- Right turns through crosswalks;
- Distracted driving, i.e. texting and driving; and,
- Hitting pedestrians in crosswalks.
Common Pedestrian Injuries
When a negligent driver is barreling down the road toward a pedestrian, likely the pedestrian will have nowhere to hide. If stuck, the pedestrian faces significant serious injuries including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and significant skin injuries. These injuries will incur massive medical bills. The injured pedestrian can ask to be reimbursed for pain, suffering, lost wages, and medical bills.
After you contact Emerson Divorce and Accident Injury Attorneys, L.L.C. our injury attorneys will investigate the cause of your injuries, document your lost wages and medical bills, and begin negotiating on your behalf.
