Are You Protected on the Streets? Understanding Your Rights and Options after a Pedestrian Accident

As we step into February 2024, our office has seen many new requests for incidents of pedestrian accidents. Unlike those protected by vehicles, pedestrians face a unique vulnerability on our roads, often resulting in severe injuries and life-altering traumas.

Pedestrians occupy a position of unparalleled vulnerability. In the unfortunate event of a collision with a vehicle, the consequences can be devastating. Unlike motorists, motorcyclists, and even bicyclists, pedestrians lack the protective shell of a vehicle or the sturdy frame of a bicycle.

Pedestrian accidents can lead to a range of traumatic injuries, including but not limited to:

Head and Brain Injuries

The initial impact with a vehicle can cause severe head and brain injuries, with consequences ranging from concussions to more debilitating conditions.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Pedestrians are at risk of sustaining spinal cord injuries, which can result in long-term disability and significant life adjustments.

Internal Bleeding or Other Internal Injuries

The force of a collision can cause internal injuries, sometimes not immediately apparent but with serious long-term implications.

Crush Injuries and Amputations

In the chaos of a collision, pedestrians may suffer crush injuries or even face the grim possibility of limb amputations.
