Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents can be the result of many types of negligent actions:

    Driving through a crosswalk without paying attention
    Drunk driving
    Distracted driving or reckless driving
    Driving too fast through a parking lot
    Not paying attention to pedestrians

Were You Hit By a Car?

In the aftermath of a pedestrian accident involving a vehicle, your entitlement to benefits typically stems from the insurance company representing the driver responsible for the collision. Two insurance adjusters are typically involved in this process: one tasked with handling your claim and another representing the interests of the individual who struck you.

Ensuring that the adjuster assigned to your case comprehensively assesses your situation is paramount. Often, these adjusters may lack complete information regarding the full extent of how the accident has impacted your life. It's imperative to communicate any and all repercussions you've endured due to the incident. This includes notifying the adjuster if you've experienced:

    Broken bones
    Concussion or other head injury
    Spinal or neck injuries
    Loss of a limb
    Serious strains
    Psychological effects
    Other injuries

All of these may cost you time off work as you recover, as well as medical costs and rehabilitation fees. Some may even cause you permanent disability, which can prevent you from going to work and making a living.
