Pedestrian Accidents


Ensuring That Pedestrian Accident Victims Recover the Compensation They Deserve

As pedestrians, we assume that crossing the street using designated crosswalks will keep us safe. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. Distracted drivers, motorcyclists, or bicyclists may fail to stop their vehicles in time, leading to a collision and possible injuries. When the accident involves a commercial truck or large motor vehicle, the injuries can be especially severe and even catastrophic, requiring extensive and costly medical treatments with lengthy recoveries. Suddenly, you can find yourself weighed down by the unanticipated medical bills, lost wages, and other considerable costs associated with the accident. It’s natural for pedestrian accident victims to feel overwhelmed and concerned about supporting their loved ones while coping with injuries that prevent them from working. At Henderson Taylor Law Firm PLLC, our highly experienced and compassionate personal injury attorneys are committed to obtaining justice on behalf of all of our clients, regardless of the specific challenges they are facing. You can trust that we will treat you with the empathy and care you deserve during this challenging time, and we will work hard to implement the most strategic course of action to ensure that you secure the compensation you are owed.

Pedestrian Accidents Can Cause Complex Injuries With Lasting Consequences

Pedestrian accident injuries can be severe, especially if the victim is struck by a large vehicle or truck. Common pedestrian injuries include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and other debilitating conditions that may require extensive surgeries and ongoing treatments. Not only must you cope with astoundingly expensive medical bills—but you’ll also need substantial emotional support during your recovery. Many victims develop symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other concerning mental health challenges. Additionally, the stress over your financial future can undoubtedly make it harder for you to focus on your physical recovery. Our attorneys understand how overwhelmed you may feel during this difficult time, and we will work hard to prepare and file a successful personal injury claim that secures you the compensation you need in order to rebuild your life and move forward with greater certainty and stability.

Successful Personal Injury Claims Start at the Scene

The site of a pedestrian accident is often confusing, chaotic, and overwhelming. Your primary concern should be your physical safety, so call for an ambulance if you have suffered any injuries. Although you may not believe that your injuries are severe enough to justify a visit to the hospital, be sure to schedule a visit with your doctor within the next day or two for a complete physical examination. The medical records established by your hospital stay, doctor’s office visit, or follow-up appointments will be critical pieces of evidence to include in your personal injury claim, as they will serve to quantify the extent to which the accident has impacted your health, mobility, and quality of life—not to mention your finances. Another step you should take at the scene of the accident is to gather the names and contact information of the other parties involved in the incident, as well as any witnesses who can provide insight into the events leading up to the collision. Contacting local law enforcement so that the responding officer can compile a report can also help to strengthen your personal injury claim later on.
