Holding Drivers Accountable for Serious Pedestrian Injuries

In many cases, a pedestrian accident does not simply end with putting the victim’s arm in a cast and sending him or her home from the hospital. The impact from a bumper and hood hitting a person’s legs and hips can inflict serious damage.

If the vehicle is traveling fast enough, the pedestrian may be thrown, causing head or internal injuries. Amputation may be required if injuries to the limbs are severe enough, while the most serious pedestrian accidents can result in death.

Often, these accidents happen because a driver was drunk, speeding, or distracted. In some cases, improperly maintained sidewalks or roads are to blame. Whatever the cause of the accident, an injured pedestrian needs full compensation to cover the costs of medical care and extensive rehabilitation, lost wages, and other damages.
