Types of Cases We Handle
Pedestrian crashes happen in a variety of circumstances. Whatever your situation, we can represent your interests.
- Crosswalk accidents; right of way violations
- Failing to watch for people walking on the side of the road
- Backing up without yielding to a person behind, in parking lots and on roads
- Distracted driver accidents; texting while driving
- Construction workers who are on the roadways
- Circumstances where a vehicle leaves the roadway
- Accidents while getting in and out of vehicles; embarking and disembarking
- Drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs
- Utility workers and waste management professionals working on and near the roads
- Road rage and intentional assault
- Speeding and other traffic violations
Pedestrian accidents happen in the morning, afternoon and evening. The roadway may be dimly lit or brightly lit. A pedestrian has the right to expect others to use reasonable care. When negligence is the cause of a pedestrian accident, the victim may claim compensation.
Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Victims
With injuries in pedestrian accidents often being severe, the compensation that you receive is especially important. You may claim compensation for physical injuries such as:
- Brain trauma, concussion, traumatic brain injury, skull fracture
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis
- Broken bones
- Road rash and whiplash
- Scars and disfigurement; disability
- Internal injury, internal bleeding
- Crushing injuries and amputations
Many people think that their compensation is just for short term medical treatment. That isn’t the case. Future care needs, nursing care and rehabilitation can all be a part of your claim. You can claim pain and suffering, too.
In addition to injuries and medical treatment, you may claim compensation for other economic losses, including:
- Lost income
- Damage to your career long term
- The cost to care for family members, if you provided caregiving services
- Costs of travel to medical appointments
- Property damage like your phone, clothes or other items you may have had with you
As any accident victim knows, damages extend far beyond financial losses alone. You already know that your injuries may prevent you from returning to life as you knew it before the accident. The loss to your lifestyle should be compensated. You have a right to claim compensation for your personal losses, including:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental health injuries like anxiety, PTSD, flashbacks and stress
- Emotional anguish
- Damage to your lifestyle
Punitive damages may also be available in some circumstances.
When our lawyers meet with pedestrian accident victims, they’re naturally curious about the value of their case. The law allows for comprehensive damages. There’s no deduction for the fact that you were not in a vehicle or that your injuries may be especially severe as a pedestrian. You deserve fair compensation. As experienced lawyers, we can determine what your claim is worth and assist you in taking the correct steps to fully claim it.

Do I have a pedestrian accident claim?
To receive compensation for a pedestrian accident claim, you must prove: duty, breach of duty, causation and damages. All drivers have a duty to be careful. Even people who are not driving a vehicle have a duty of care for others in and around the roadways.
Breach of duty can be negligence, recklessness, or intentionally harmful conduct. It is any behavior that falls below the standard of care. If a breach of duty results in an accident, and you are injured as a result, you may have a pedestrian accident claim.
