In the United States, pedestrians are injured in a variety of accidents each day. These accidents can greatly alter your lifestyle due to the physical ramifications. A pedestrian is a person who travels on foot sometimes referred to as a walker. Hence, a pedestrian injury is any harm done to a person traveling by foot caused by a motor vehicle on public streets, highways, private property, or other non-traffic location. There are many factors that can cause a pedestrian accident.

What To Do If You’re In A Pedestrian Accident
A pedestrian accident can be caused because of several different variables. Oftentimes they occur because a motor vehicle driver doesn’t pay attention to road signs or doesn’t see a pedestrian. Some common causes of pedestrian accidents are:
- Lack of attention to road signs
- A disregard for a pedestrian crosswalk
- Deliberate disregard of traffic rules and regulations
- Failure to stop for pedestrians
- Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
If you have a pedestrian accident case, it is important to first know that you should not give any statements or sign any authorizations given to you by the insurance company. Doing so might hinder your cash settlement. Secondly, you can work with our Norfolk injury attorneys to determine who was at fault. If we find that a person caused your pedestrian accident due to their own negligence, we can file a lawsuit for damages.
Our team will try to get damages awarded for the following:
- Current or future medical care
- Past, present, and future income lost due to the pedestrian accident injury
- Everlasting physical disability
- Loss of social, familial, or educational events
- Pain and suffering
