What Causes Pedestrian Accidents ?

We do not like to think about how vulnerable we are when we are out and about. However, we know that pedestrians do not have armor. No airbags or metal frames are there to blunt a collision. We are susceptible to injuries in various places, especially in:

  • Crosswalks
  • Intersections
  • Sidewalks
  • Parking lots

Anywhere people are around moving vehicles or other fast-moving objects, they can get injured. For the latest reporting year in Ohio, we see that nearly every single pedestrian accident resulted in an injury or fatality. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of a pedestrian crash:

  • Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

All of these injuries require a person to seek immediate medical attention. In many of these cases, a pedestrian accident victim will need extensive medical intervention and rehabilitation in order to make a recovery. If a victim is temporarily or permanently disabled, they may not be able to return to work. A loss of income can put pedestrian accident victims and their families into serious financial jeopardy.

Who will cover these expenses?

Will insurance companies give a fair settlement?

How Do These Pedestrian Accidents Happen?

We find that pedestrian accidents are often the result of careless or negligent driving behavior. Often, a driver is distracted by their phones or other devices. Any time a driver takes their eyes off the road to read a text or watch a video clip, they are jeopardizing the safety of everyone around them.

Even more deadly are those who make the choice to get behind the wheel while impaired by drugs or alcohol.

In any case of a pedestrian versus vehicle collision that is caused by a driver’s negligence, the victim needs to be fairly compensated.

What Happens If You Are Injured?

You do not have to sit back and wait for insurance companies to determine how much money you should get in a settlement. If the negligent actions of another person have caused you or loved one harm, secure legal assistance immediately. At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we will be your advocate, working to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. This can include coverage for:

  • Your medical expenses related to the pedestrian incident

  • Punitive damages against those responsible
