Car versus Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrian Injuries

Those who suffer from pedestrian injuries due to car versus pedestrian accidents will likely be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, losses and mental anguish.

Those who suffer from pedestrian injuries due to car versus pedestrian accidents will likely be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, losses and mental anguish.

Although any type of traffic accident can result in severe, life-threatening injuries (depending on the point of impact, the vehicle speeds at the time of the collision, etc.), car versus pedestrian accidents tend to be the most serious type of traffic accidents, as:

  • Pedestrians have little to no protection from the impact of vehicles.
  • Vehicles weigh far more than pedestrians, meaning that they can cause significant injury or death upon impact with pedestrians even when the vehicles are traveling at very slow speeds.
  • They most often result in fatalities.

Some of the most common pedestrian injuries that can result from car versus pedestrian accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (particularly severe traumatic brain injuries that could result in temporary or permanent loss of consciousness)
  • Other head injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Loss of the hands, feet, legs and/or arms
  • Severe burns
  • Severe nerve damage.

Causes of Car versus Pedestrian Accidents

Some of the specific causes of car versus pedestrian accidents that can result in serious pedestrian injuries may include (but are not limited to):

  • Driver intoxication
  • Driver distraction
  • Driver fatigue or distraction (which can be as dangerous as drunk driving)
  • Drivers’ failure to comply with traffic laws
  • Poor roadway conditions (such as a lack of signage or indicators for crosswalks).
