Pedestrian Accidents

At some point during the course of the day, we are all pedestrians. Pedestrian traffic accidents with injuries or fatalities are all too common, despite campaigns to increase public awareness and knowledge of pedestrian safety. In the United States, a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle every seven minutes.

In most of these cases, the driver is to blame. But it is the pedestrian who experiences the most suffering in these types of accidents, physically and emotionally. Many victims suffer from road rash, broken bones, nerve damage, spinal injuries, brain trauma, and paralysis. Thousands are injured each year while doing nothing more than crossing the street or using a sidewalk; many are killed.

The medical expenses and emotional suffering related to these traumatic incidents are not something you should have to endure alone. A personal injury lawyer with pedestrian accident experience can help you work through this difficult time and collect the compensation you deserve.

Victims of pedestrian accidents are eligible for a wide variety of damages from the careless drivers who hit them. You might be entitled to medical expenses, therapy expenses, and lost wages in addition compensation for your pain and suffering. If the driver was drunk or otherwise reckless, you may also be able to collect punitive damages meant to punish him or her for driving so dangerously. Your accident attorney will help you understand how much compensation you may be entitled to collect.

If you or a loved one was hit by a car while walking, call the skilled, experienced personal injury attorneys of Bolt Hoffer Boyd to discuss your potential case.
