Common Pedestrian Accident Scenarios
Each accident is unique, and no two cases will be the same. However, what most pedestrian accidents have in common are negligent drivers, and it is rare to see a case where the pedestrian is at fault.
The following are examples of what negligent drivers were doing right before the pedestrian accident:
- Driving drunk or intoxicated
- Swerving between lanes
- Failing to yield
- Texting and driving
- Talking on their cellphone
- Using a navigation system
- Driving drowsy
Drivers are not the only possible liable parties in pedestrian accidents. We have handled cases where there were malfunctioning vehicles, faulty traffic lights, missing signage, etc.

What Am I Entitled To?
When you file for a pedestrian accident claim, you are seeking financial compensation from the liable party’s insurance company.
For instance, if you were hit in a crosswalk during a red light by someone driving recklessly, they would bear fault for the accident. The driver’s insurance company would be financially responsible for covering your damages and injuries.
Your compensation award is made up of economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages include lost wages, benefits, and medical bills. They are relatively easy to calculate, and you can also receive compensation for past and future monetary damages. Medical bills can be costly for injured pedestrians. We fight to ensure your compensation includes every medical expense you have paid and everything you expect to have to pay in the future.
Non-economic damages are more subjectable. They include factors such as a loss of life quality, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering. You may be suffering from significant injuries that have permanently affected how you live your life. Physical, mental, and emotional damages deserve adequate compensation from the liable party.
