Causes & Consequences of Pedestrian Accidents

A pedestrian accident can leave you with serious or catastrophic injuries. These injuries can require a lengthy recovery time during which you may be unable to work and earn the money you need to pay all of your bills. As an accident victim, you have suffered enough without also having to suffer the financial consequences of an accident that you did not cause. Personal injury law exists to protect your rights to pursue compensation for your losses when you have suffered harm due to another person’s carelessness.

Most pedestrian accidents result when motorists fail in their duty to share the road, and can involve negligence in the form of:

  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driver inattention
  • Ignoring stop signs and traffic signals
  • Failing to yield
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while fatigued

Pedestrian accidents can also be caused by other factors, including:

  • Crumbling pavement
  • Lack of sidewalks/crosswalks
  • Unsafe intersections
  • Debris from nearby construction

If you have been injured in a preventable car accident or an accident on a city street as a pedestrian, do not delay in contacting a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer at Kelley/Uustal to discuss your potential case. You may be eligible to collect substantial compensation for your losses, including but not limited to medical bills, rehabilitation costs, property damage, pain and suffering, and lost income.
