Pedestrian Accidents

You know the drill. Look both ways. Stay in the crosswalk. Stick to well-lit sidewalks. Wait your turn to cross the street.

You do all the right things, but you still can’t guarantee your own safety at all times. Collisions happen, unfortunately – even to the most conscientious pedestrians.

If you’ve been struck while walking, it’s not your fault! It’s the fault of a negligent driver. You can receive compensation for losses related to your injuries by pursuing a personal injury claim.

Ways You Can Be Injured By A Car Crash

If you’ve been hit by a car, your injuries can range from minor bumps and bruises to major trauma. Many of these injuries can have long-term complications, especially if left untreated. Be sure to get medical care as soon as possible after a pedestrian accident.

Typical Pedestrian Accident Injuries

  • Broken Bones
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Cuts
  • Burns
  • Head Trauma
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Depression
  • Anxiety / Panic Attacks

You may also suffer injuries that aren’t physical. It’s common to experience depression while adjusting to a permanent disability. Many victims of a car crash experience anxiety around traffic.

You can pursue compensation available for damages related to your injuries, including mental health treatment and reduced quality of life. We can help you with your personal injury claim.

What to Do If You’ve Been Injured As A Pedestrian

When you’re injured because a driver acted irresponsibly, you can file a personal injury claim with their auto insurance provider to seek compensation for your injury-related losses.

Typical Compensation for Car Accident Victims

  • Your Medical Expenses
  • Your Lost Wages (and other career-related losses)
  • Your Pain And Suffering Damages (ie, losses that can’t be easily quantified)

You’ll want to provide evidence that proves the driver’s negligence directly caused your injury. This evidence will support your personal injury claim.

Helpful Evidence for a Personal Injury Claim

  • Photographs of the Accident Site
  • Your Police Report
  • Testimonies from Witnesses

Every case is different, and many factors affect your personal injury claim. Your best option is to get in touch with a trusted attorney. Here at Emery Law Office, we know how to maximize the compensation you receive.
