Common Injuries Sustained By the Victims of Pedestrian Accidents
Injuries suffered in a pedestrian accident are often severe and life-changing due to the impact from a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds. Rarely will an accident victim walk away with only minor injuries.
Unfortunately, even the most cautious and safest pedestrian cannot prevent or avoid an accident if they're sharing the road with a reckless driver. Over the years, our personal injury attorneys have handled many pedestrian accident cases and have come across the following types of pedestrian accident injuries:
- Spinal cord damage
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Concussions (mild TBIs)
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue damage
- Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
- Crush injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Dental injuries
- Leg, wrist, and arm injuries
- Permanent injuries
- Fatal injuries

Compensation for Pedestrians Hit by Cars
If you were injured in a pedestrian accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you must pursue compensation. Your attorney must prove that the collision was caused by a negligent driver and the driver's negligence resulted in the accident and your subsequent injuries. If your attorney is able to provide proof that will hold the reckless driver responsible for your losses you will be entitled to compensation that can include both economic and non-economic damages, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future medical expenses
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of earning capacity
- Permanent disability
- Loss of consortium
And other non-economic and economic losses
If you lost a loved one due to fatal pedestrian injuries you may be entitled to compensation. In the state of California, a decedent's surviving family, such as their spouse, children, or parents, may be entitled to compensation for funeral and burial costs, loss of love, affection, guidance, and care, and mental pain and suffering. Speaking with an experienced wrongful death attorney at our accident injury law firm will help you determine whether or not you have a valid claim and what your legal rights and options are.
What to Do if You've Been a Victim of a Pedestrian Accident
If you were involved in a pedestrian accident, your first step following the collision is seeking medical treatment. In most cases, the injuries sustained by pedestrians are severe, however the severity of the injuries often depends on the point of impact and how fast the vehicle was traveling at the time of the accident. Even if you feel like the injuries you suffered were mild and do not require immediate medical treatment you must still see a medical professional as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, some symptoms of serious injuries are not obvious until several hours or even days following a collision. These injuries can be fatal if left untreated, which is why it's crucial that you have a medical assessment immediately. After you have received medical care, your next move is contacting an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer in Ontario. An attorney will walk you through this process and go over what your legal options are. They can help you file an insurance claim, speak with the driver's insurance company, and guide you throughout this process. They'll advise you to not post or discuss your case on social media, and ensure that you continue to receive the necessary medical treatment. They will also gather and analyze evidence that will help them build a strong case to prove liability.
During this difficult time, you should not go It alone. With a personal injury attorney in your corner your chances of receiving the compensation you’re owed are significantly higher.
