Pedestrian accidents happen more often these days near your home and usually include children and teens. With the invention of cell phones and the texting phenomenon there are more distracted motorists and more serious injuries then years prior. Pedestrian accidents are caused by many factors such as speeding, distracted drivers, drivers ignoring road signs and failing to yield to pedestrians in the cross walk. Additionally, with the high number of Drivers Under the Influence (DUI) on the road, pedestrians need to be weary of drunk drivers and drivers under the influence of drugs. These individuals increase the risk for pedestrian accidents when they enter their vehicle. Obviously, when a vehicle hits a pedestrian the injuries are often very serious and sometimes result in a wrongful death. Severe brain and head trauma, damage to limbs, and spinal cord injuries are very common with pedestrian accidents. Victims of these accidents should consult our pedestrian and wrongful death injury lawyers to discuss the compensation that you may be entitled. Pedestrians injured by negligent drivers are entitled to compensation for payment of medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering.
