Common Injuries of Pedestrians Hit by Cars

When we get a call from a client who was hurt by a reckless driver while they were walking down the street, we know that we have a serious case on our hands. Rarely do pedestrians suffer mild or moderate injuries in a pedestrian accident case. Most often, they suffer life-changing injuries that need extensive medical attention and years of rehabilitation.

Catastrophic injuries suffered by pedestrians can include:

If you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, then you should be given ample time to grieve healthily. You won’t be able to do that if the insurance company representing the driver is not respecting your case. Allow us to take over your wrongful death claim for you, so we can manage your case while you focus on your family and wellbeing.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Investigating pedestrian accidents is one of our areas of focus. The goal is to make sure that we can find evidence that proves that the driver was to blame for the crash, not you. Security camera footage, dashcam footage, eyewitness statements, and police reports are all frequently used to prove liability and assign it to the driver. To begin, though, we need to consider the exact cause.

Pedestrian accidents are often caused by drivers who:

  • Speed
  • Drunk drive
  • Text and drive
  • Back up without looking

We can help you no matter where your pedestrian accident occurred. Whether it happened at a busy intersection – where they often do – or a retail parking lot, our team is standing by to assist you to the fullest of our abilities.

Pedestrian Responsibilities & Laws

Pedestrians need to follow the rules of the road, too. Jaywalking or crossing the street where there is no crosswalk is prohibited. Running behind vehicles in parking lots without pausing to see if they are backing up is also unsafe.

How you were behaving at the time of the accident is important. If the defendant can argue that you weren’t adhering to your responsibilities as a pedestrian, then your liability can increase, even if the driver wasn’t following their rules, either. In Nevada, if your liability exceeds 50%, you can’t recover anything from the other party.

What If an Uninsured Driver Hit You?

Were you hit by an uninsured motorist while you were walking down the street? It might seem like a hopeless situation, but you could still have a chance to make a full financial recovery. The auto insurance policy you purchased might be able to take care of some of your damages. We can review your policy and see if you have uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) insurance coverage, which can be used to treat your injuries when you’re hurt by a driver with no insurance, even if you weren’t in a car yourself.
