The Impact of Pedestrian Accident Injuries

When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, the injuries sustained can be catastrophic. In many instances, broken bones, head and brain injuries, and disfigurement follow such a collision. The damages can extend far beyond the victim. An individual’s family and loved ones may also bear the burden of a pedestrian accident as they watch their loved one suffer.

A pedestrian accident victim must often overcome:

  • Psychological and emotional trauma
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Missed time at work or loss of earning capacity
  • Extensive time in the hospital and / or physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation steps and costs
  • Potential handicaps or disabilities due to injury

No injury victim or family should have to carry this burden alone—when a negligent driver has caused these damages, they should be held liable and accountable for their actions.

How Can I Determine Who Is Liable?

When an accident occurs between a pedestrian and a motor vehicle, liability may be assigned to either the pedestrian or the driver of the vehicle. In some cases, liability may be placed on a third party, such as if a traffic signal malfunctioned or roadway defect led to the accident.

A pedestrian may be found liable if they:

  • Crossed the street against traffic signals
  • Crossed the street outside of a crosswalk or intersection
  • Walked on a restricted or limited access roadway
  • Walked into a roadway without looking for traffic (as in the case of a child running out into traffic)

Pedestrians have the responsibility of exercising care and following all traffic laws. When they neglect to do so, they may not be able to collect compensation for the injuries they suffer in an accident.

Alternatively, drivers can be held liable when they’ve caused accidents due to:

  • Driving above the speed limit
  • Driving carelessly or aggressively
  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on the phone or other distractions
  • Failing to yield right of way to pedestrians in a crosswalk
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol

When drivers neglect to follow traffic laws, they may be held liable even if the pedestrian is in the roadway improperly. That is why it is extremely important to discuss your case with a Kansas City pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible. The team at our firm can review your situation and help you craft a compelling claim.
