Common Injuries In Pedestrian-Vehicle Accidents
A person on foot is no match for a large, multi-ton vehicle. Pedestrians have virtually no protection when they are hit by cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles. Sadly, this often leads to catastrophic injuries and/or death.
When pedestrian accidents are not fatal, victims often suffering the following injuries:
- Brain injuries
- Skull fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia, etc.)
- Accidental amputation
- Broken bones/multiple fractures
- Internal organ damage
These and other pedestrian injuries can result in temporary or lifelong disability, severe disfigurement, and severe physical and emotional pain and suffering. Due to the incredibly serious nature of these types of injuries, pedestrian accident cases often require special care in order to help ensure victims receive the full compensation they need for extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, in-home care, lost past and future earnings, and numerous other economic and non-economic damages. Our Irvine pedestrian accident attorney knows how to navigate these types of claims.
Can A Pedestrian Be At Fault In A Car Pedestrian Accident?
A pedestrian can be at fault for a car pedestrian accident because they are required to follow certain laws when entering the road. Some of the most common scenarios of when a pedestrian can be found at fault are:
- A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
- A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
- A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed
Determining pedestrian accident liability is not always straightforward as there are many factors that need to be considered. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, contact our Irvine pedestrian accident attorneys today to learn how we can help you.
We Are Here For You
At Alpine Law Group, we understand that you are understandably focused on getting the crucial medical treatment you need; bringing a personal injury claim after a pedestrian accident may be the furthest thing from your mind. However, the cost of medical care alone can be exorbitant. This, on top of lost wages/income from time taken off work (or the complete inability to ever return to work), can be financially crippling. Our legal team can help you seek justice and fair compensation from the liable party to help with these and other damages you have suffered.
