How Negligence Leads to Pedestrian Accidents

All too often, motorists and, in some cases, bicyclists are not paying attention. When this is the case, people on foot can be struck and seriously injured or even killed. There is never an excuse for negligence, yet it is the number one cause of pedestrian accidents in Oregon and across the United States.

Examples of how negligence can lead to serious pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers failing to see a pedestrian in the crosswalk
  • Drunk drivers veering onto sidewalks
  • Speeding drivers failing to stop in time for a pedestrian crossing an intersection
  • Motorists failing to check for pedestrians before making unprotected turns
  • People opening parked car doors into pedestrians
  • Bicyclists riding on sidewalks in areas where this is not permitted
  • Drivers failing to stop at red lights or stop signs
  • Motorists failing to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians

These are just some of many examples of how negligence can lead to serious collisions between cars, motorcycles, trucks, bicycles, etc. and pedestrians. Regardless of how your accident occurred, our firm can help you determine who was at fault and, therefore, liable for your injuries and other damages.

Damages in Pedestrian Accident Cases

You may have heard the term “damages” in regards to personal injury cases; damages is a legal term for economic and non-economic losses a person suffers as a result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions or inactions. In other words, the “costs” of your injuries—whether they are financial in nature or physical/emotional costs—are your damages.

Every case is different and, therefore, it is not possible to determine exactly which damages you will be able to recover after your pedestrian accident. Similarly, it is not possible for any attorney to determine the value of your claim without first going over the specifics of your case—be wary of any attorney who promises a specific outcome or recovery.

All that being said, most pedestrian accident victims are able to recover the following damages:

  • All medical expenses related to the accident, including:
    • Emergency treatment
    • Ambulance fees
    • Emergency room/hospital fees
    • Surgeries
    • Rehabilitative therapy
    • Medications
    • Pain management programs
    • Ongoing treatment and care
    • In-home care costs
    • Medical equipment (wheelchairs, crutches, etc.)
    • Medical devices, including prosthetics
  • Lost wages and/or income, including future earnings
  • Lost or reduced earning capacity (when injuries are partially or fully disabling)
  • Counseling for mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD
  • Pain and suffering, including both physical pain and emotional distress

If your loved one was killed in a pedestrian accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim and seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses associated with your loved one’s final treatment, funeral/burial costs, loss of financial support/income, loss of companionship and love, loss of guidance, and more.
