If you were seriously injured in a car-vs-pedestrian accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you can likely file a claim against the driver for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. If a loved one (such as a spouse, child, or parent) was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party or parties.
After a serious pedestrian accident injury, it is vital to determine why the collision took place and who was at fault. There are a number of causes of pedestrian accidents:
- Speeding drivers or reckless drivers.
- Drunk drivers.
- Distracted drivers or fatigued drivers.
- Poor road design or poor sidewalk design.
- A trucker or truck company breaking federal regulations.
- Careless, distracted, or drunk pedestrians.
