Legal resources for victims of pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents can cause significant harm to victims which can last a lifetime. As a result, victims of pedestrian accidents should be familiar with the legal resources available to them when they have been harmed. Different legal options and remedies are available and pedestrian accident victims should know what they are.

Unfortunately, the National Highway Traffic Safety Association reports that close to 5,000 pedestrians die annually in motor vehicle-related accidents and approximately another 76,000 pedestrian accident victims suffered injuries in pedestrian accidents during 2012. A pedestrian accident can leave victims with serious injuries including physical injuries and other damages including financial and emotional damages.

Fortunately, when a pedestrian has been injured by a negligent driver legal options are available to help victims of pedestrian accidents recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages they have suffered. The victim of a pedestrian accident may be able to recover damages including those for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering associated with a pedestrian accident which can result in catastrophic injuries and a long recovery process.

When a negligent driver has carelessly harmed a pedestrian, such as by failing to yield the right of way or speeding, it is essential for pedestrian accident victims and their families to be familiar with personal injury protections available to help them. Bringing a personal injury claim for damages can help injured victims and their families hold negligent drivers accountable and get the help they need as they struggle to heal from their injuries following a pedestrian accident.
