Although walking is normally considered a healthy way to travel, being a pedestrian in a major city, or near a busy roadway, can also be a potential source of serious injury. Even the most common types of everyday activities – like walking the dog, jogging or even crossing the street – can prove hazardous depending on the actions of those around you.

Types of Pedestrian Accident Cases
Some of the most common forms of personal injury accidents are those involving collisions between cars and pedestrians. Not surprisingly, these kinds of incidents often cause serious life-threatening injuries to the head, spine, bones or internal organs of the affected parties. Recovery is never guaranteed, and victim’s lives are often changed forever following these events.
Common types of pedestrian accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding, careless or reckless driving
- Running red lights or stop signs
- Ignoring the “right of way”
- Failing to yield at crosswalks
- Passing stopped vehicles
- Driving too close to the road shoulder
- Texting and using cell phones while operating a vehicle
In most every case, negligence on the part of the driver is the root cause. To be fair, pedestrians sometimes share some of the blame for their injuries, but statistics show in the vast majority of cases it’s the vehicle operator that is usually at fault.

Common Pedestrian Injuries
It goes without saying that in pedestrian accidents involving automobiles or commercial vehicles, those on foot normally come out as the loser. The fragile human body is no match for tons of glass and steel hurtling down the roadway. Because of this lopsided matchup, injuries suffered from pedestrian accidents can be some of the most severe types of personal accident injuries.
It is not uncommon for victims to suffer multiple afflictions:
- Sprains and strains
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
- Head and face traumas
- Brain damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Full or partial paralysis
- Mental disabilities
Pedestrian accidents can be devastating for victims and their families not only on a physical or emotional level, but can pose an enormous financial burden as well. The cost of complicated medical treatments, long-term hospital stays, and extensive rehabilitative care can quickly add up. These kinds of expenses can put a huge strain on a family’s financial resources and often leave them in ruins.

Our client was injured when a vehicle rolled back hitting him on the head and knocking him on his back. The driver had exited the vehicle and forgot to engage her brakes. Our client was picking up the recycling bins at the edge of the sidewalk and never noticed the vehicle until he was struck. This occurred in front of defendant’s home. Our client underwent a discogram which revealed annular tears at L4-5. The doctor recommended surgery; however, the client refused. Our client changed jobs and became a jeweler. His income was significantly reduced, and he was left with no health insurance. We retained an economist and resolved the case for $400,000. The client now owns his own jewelry store, and is now able to afford health insurance.
