What is the Primary Cause of Pedestrian Accidents?
After being in a pedestrian accident, you should not be surprised if the driver tries to blame you outright for what happened. They might even have a full story about how you jumped out in the middle of the street without any warning. If they do this, then it’s probably because they know they were the one who caused the accident.
Most pedestrian accidents are not caused by a person’s negligence. Instead, a driver’s negligence can be traced as the source.
Driver mistakes that can cause a pedestrian accident include:
- Running red lights
- Speeding in neighborhoods
- Backing out of parking spots without looking
- And more
When & Where Do Pedestrian Accidents Most Often Occur?
Pedestrian accidents can happen anywhere that a driver is acting negligently around people who are walking through or near the street. However, many pedestrian accidents happen at intersections with or without crosswalks. They also happen often in busy parking lots, where drivers sometimes race through the lanes without paying enough attention to who is walking to and from their cars.
Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Jackson have helped clients with all sorts of cases. No matter where you were hit by a reckless driver, you can be confident that we know how to investigate the crash and build your case to the fullest.
What Types of Injuries Happen in Pedestrian Accidents?
The consequences of a pedestrian accident are rarely minimal. At most speeds, a car that strikes a pedestrian can cause catastrophic injuries. There is just no way for a pedestrian to be well protected from the impact of a much larger, heavier vehicle.
Let us know if you suffered any of these severe injuries after a pedestrian accident:
The compensation that you are owed after a pedestrian accident will vary largely depending on the severity of your injuries. The worse you have been hurt, it makes sense to expect that you will need a larger amount of compensation to pay for your related damages, like medical bills and missing wages. Our team will be careful to calculate your damages to be as accurate as possible because we do not want to leave a single penny behind if it should be yours.
