We hope that the pedestrian in this accident has a quick and full recovery. Pedestrian accidents are some of the most serious and sometimes deadly accidents that we encounter. In many cases, the pedestrian has little time even see the accident coming, much less take defensive action to avoid it. Pedestrians sometimes wrongfully assume that a car approaching them will stop or yield so that they can cross the roadway. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
In heavily congested cities and towns, it is extremely important for drivers to use due caution when approaching an area frequented by pedestrians. Similarly, pedestrians must make sure that they are always following all traffic laws and ordinances for their own safety. When a driver fails to use the proper care to ensure the safety of pedestrians and an accident results, the driver may be held civilly liable for their actions which led to the accident. In personal injury law, this is a concept known as negligence.
If a pedestrian is injured due to the negligence another, the pedestrian can recover personal injuries suffered as a result, including medical bills, out of pocket expenses, lost wages as well as pain and suffering. These cases are complicated, however and require assistance from a lawyer to ensure they are properly handled.
