Pedestrian Accidents

Foot traffic on Minnesota streets has increased as a part of individuals simply going green and becoming healthier. They leave the car parked, they take off for a walk, and then the unexpected happens. All of a sudden a driver did not obey traffic laws and this resulted in a very unexpected accident.

You knew that you were to walk defensively, which is why it was such a shock when you were suddenly hit and put in unbearable pain. This changed your world emotionally and physically. It also changes your world financially.

While nothing can be done about the physical and emotional aspects of the accident, something can be done about the financial impact. When someone else is responsible for the accident, it is best to speak with an experienced lawyer who can file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf and pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, childcare, pain and suffering, and other costs that have been accrued as a result of the accident.

Pedestrian Accident Injuries

It is estimated that there are nearly 5,000 pedestrians injured or killed in collisions with motor vehicles each year. These injuries and fatalities are often the result of drivers who do not observe traffic signs or they are speeding. Pedestrian accidents have also occurred with bicyclists and motorcyclists. Poorly designed intersections, poorly maintained and designed safety equipment, bridges, and guard rails have also contributed to pedestrian accidents and caused many injuries including the following:

  • Head or brain injury
  • Back or spinal injury
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation of limbs
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Eye and ear injuries
  • Internal and organ damage
  • Death

All of these injuries, with the exception of death, can cause lifelong disability. This means never being able to go back to work and having a compromised quality of life. With the help of your lawyer, you can ensure the financial aspect is something you don’t have to worry about.

Helping You Pursue Compensation

After your injury or the death of a loved one, it is important to call your attorney as soon as you are able. You deserve compensation for your suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses. You have to live with the physical and emotional pain, but you don’t have to live with the monetary impact. Instead, the party responsible can absorb the financial impact of the accident.
