Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

While bikers, pedestrians, and drivers should be able to share the road by abiding by simple rules, drivers often are careless and injuries to others are the result. When you are walking through an intersection, you are forced to place your trust in the ability and attentiveness of drivers. When that trust is betrayed and you are injured, a pedestrian accident lawyer may be able to help. We handle many types of auto accident cases and other personal injury matters. Contact us for a free consultation to see how we will fight for you.

What You Need to Know About Pedestrian Injuries

First, if you have auto insurance, or if your household has auto insurance, then that insurance policy’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits apply.  PIP will cover reasonable and necessary medical treatment for the injuries that resulted from the collision for up to two years from the date of the incident. It will also pay a portion of your lost wages if you are unable to work as a result of the injury. Similar to motorcycle accidents and bicycle accidents, pedestrian accident injuries are often severe.

Pedestrian Accidents

Auto accidents involving pedestrian can lead to some of the most disastrous injuries that occur on the road. Victims that survive being struck by a car or a truck are often left with lifelong pain and impairment that affects every facet of their lives. The human body is simply not able to withstand the extreme forces of a collision with a vehicle. This commonly results in injuries such as broken and fractured bones, extreme soft tissue wounds, and head trauma.

If a pedestrian is lucky enough to survive being struck by a car or truck, then they will likely face a long and arduous road to recovery. This is why it is imperative to seek out an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer to assist you in protecting your legal rights. Remember, the personal injury attorneys at Johnson Law offer free consultations to any pedestrian injured by a negligent driver.

What If I Do Not Have Auto Insurance?

If you do not have auto insurance but you do have personal health insurance, then your health insurance will cover the cost of treatment for the injuries you sustained. If you do not have personal health insurance, then assuming the driver who hit you is at fault, their insurance will pay for the medical bills that result from the collision.

Investigating a Pedestrian Injury Case

There are a number of factors that go into most pedestrian injuries that should be ascertained as soon as possible. This is why an experienced personal injury attorney can be a valuable asset in pedestrian accidents.

Unfortunately, insurance companies often blame pedestrians for the accident, resulting in liability disputes that go on for years. This is why if there is even a chance that the pedestrian will be blamed for the collision, it is important to investigate the accident as quickly as possible. 911 calls that result from the accident can be requested to identify witnesses. The police can be contacted and involved in the investigation to obtain any video evidence that may be available. The scene of the accident can be extensively documented by an investigator and an accident re-constructionist as soon after the accident as possible. An experienced pedestrian accident lawyer can take all these steps and more to preserve you legal rights if you have been injured by the negligent conduct of a driver.
At Johnson Law, we focus on helping vulnerable accident victims in their time of need.  We will assist with navigating the maze of medical bills, insurance claims, and doctor’s visits that accompany these devastating accidents.  It may be tempting to settle with the insurance company right away, but keep in mind that the insurance companies always low-ball you and try to settle as cheaply as possible.  At Johnson Law, we will fight to get you the compensation and justice you deserve.

The initial consultation is always free, and there is no cost to you – we don’t get paid unless we win your case for you.
