Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
A pedestrian accident often offers special challenges such as the following:
- Pedestrian accidents are often hit-and-run accidents.
- Pedestrians are not protected by a vehicle, and thus often suffer serious injuries.
- A pedestrian’s injuries may involve three points of contact. The person’s body may have struck the front of a vehicle, and then the car’s windshield and finally, the street. Each of those impacts may result in injuries to different parts of the body.

Common injuries in pedestrian accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) or head injury
- Back injury
- Neck injury
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injury
Compensation may be available through a negligent motorist’s auto insurance policy, or through the pedestrian’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. These sources will normally apply whether or not a pedestrian accident is work-related. If you were injured while walking or running on a street, on a sidewalk or in a parking lot, you may have a valid workers’ compensation claim as well as a third-party liability claim.
