Pedestrian Accidents

Posted Friday, December 6, 2019 by Chris Thayer

Alternative TextPedestrian accidents with any kind of motorized vehicle typically end in catastrophic injuries. While many people believe that the pedestrian has the “right of way,” this is only the case if the pedestrian has not behaved in a reckless, negligent, or careless manner. Assuming that a pedestrian was not in an illegal area, crossing illegally, or acting recklessly (such as throwing items at vehicles or walking under the influence of drugs or alcohol), a pedestrian may have the right to compensation for any injuries incurred.

*Pedestrian Injuries*Any pedestrian accident involving a vehicle, bicycle, scooter, truck, or motorcycle can result in serious and severe injuries. Statistics show that the most common injuries sustained from pedestrian accidents by pedestrians include:

*Steps to Take After Your Accident *As a pedestrian, if you were a victim of someone else’s negligence and suffered physical injuries, you should take certain steps following the accident to preserve your health as well as any possible legal claim you may have in the future.
