When Can Negligence Lead to Pedestrian Accidents?

Pedestrian accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. While injuries to pedestrians can result from a range of factors, negligence can play a crucial role in pedestrian accidents and lead to severe injuries. 

Common causes of pedestrian accidents due to negligence include: 

  • Distracted driving: This is one of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents. From texting to eating to talking on the phone, drivers who ignore the road can seriously injure others, such as by overlooking pedestrians. 
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol: Inebriated or drugged driving impairs a driver's ability to operate a vehicle safely, compromising their ability to drive safely and react to others on the road. 
  • Traffic violations: Running red lights, reckless driving, speeding, and related traffic violations can lead to accidents and injure pedestrians. 
  • Poor visibility: In some cases, drivers can overlook pedestrians due to poor weather conditions, glare, or inadequate street lighting.

Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians can suffer a range of injuries due to negligence. Common injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents include: 

  • Burns
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Shoulder displacement or dislocation

Who Is Liable in a Pedestrian Accident?

Proving liability is integral to recovering compensation in a pedestrian accident lawsuit. To establish liability in a pedestrian accident case, working with an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer is crucial to fortify your case with concrete evidence and present a robust and compelling argument. 

Various parties can be held liable in pedestrian accidents depending on the unique circumstances of the case, such as: 

  • Motor vehicle operators: Other drivers may be liable in pedestrian accidents if their negligence caused the accident, such as being distracted, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or violating traffic laws. 
  • Manufacturers: Vehicle and parts manufacturers may be held liable in pedestrian accidents if a defective product or part in a motor vehicle contributed to the accident. This type of liability typically falls under product liability law, which holds manufacturers responsible for the safety of their products.
  • City or local governments: Government entities can be liable in pedestrian accidents if poor infrastructure, such as insufficient crosswalks, inadequate street lighting, or poorly maintained roads, contributed to the accident.
  • Property owners: Property owners can be held liable for pedestrian accidents that occur due to property hazards, such as unsecured construction sites or poorly maintained parking lots.
  • Business owners: Businesses can be liable if their employees cause an accident while performing job-related duties. For example, if a delivery driver hits a pedestrian, the company they work for may be held responsible.

When to Seek Experienced Representation

To recover damages in a pedestrian accident, seeking sound counsel from a qualified attorney is critical. At Hilliard Law, our compassionate advocates have an in-depth understanding of personal injury law to help clients navigate the legal intricacies of their claims. 

We can fight to recover total damages on your behalf, including: 

  • Economic damages: These compensate for financial losses, such as medical care, rehabilitative treatment, property damage, and lost earnings.
  • Non-economic damages: These compensate for non-financial losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, and scarring/disfigurement.
  • Punitive damages: Unlike economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages are awarded in rare cases to punish the defendant in cases involving extreme recklessness or negligence.

Remember, having experienced representation on your side is crucial. Sound counsel from a qualified lawyer is especially vital when other parties seek to take advantage of you, such as by pushing lowballed settlements or misleading you with unnecessarily complex legal jargon. 

If you were harmed in a pedestrian accident, Hilliard Law can fight for justice on your behalf.
