Advocating for Victims' Rights and Safety

If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident, it's crucial to seek legal representation from a firm that understands the challenges and complexities of these cases. At the Law Offices of Miller & Mallett, founded in 1986, we have decades of experience successfully advocating for the rights of our clients. 

Pedestrian Accidents: a Growing Problem

Pedestrian accidents occur when a vehicle collides with a person traveling on foot. These accidents can happen in various settings, including crosswalks, intersections, parking lots, and even sidewalks. 

In the last decade, pedestrian accidents have unfortunately become even more common. Some of the causes of these accidents include:

  • Distracted Driving: Drivers who are texting, talking on the phone, or otherwise distracted are less likely to notice pedestrians in their vicinity.
  • Bad Visibility: Very large cars and SUVs may have bigger blind spots that contribute to more pedestrian accidents.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver's reaction time and increases the severity of injuries in the event of a collision.
  • Failure to Yield: Drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians at crosswalks or intersections put pedestrians at risk of injury.
  • Impaired Driving: Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs are less likely to react in time to avoid colliding with pedestrians.
  • Dangerous Road Conditions: Poorly maintained roads, inadequate signage, and lack of pedestrian infrastructure can contribute to accidents.

Serious Injuries, Long Recovery Periods

Pedestrian accidents can result in particularly severe injuries due to the vulnerability of pedestrians compared to vehicles. The physical, emotional, and financial toll of these accidents can be overwhelming for victims and their families. Common injuries include:

  • Fractures and broken bones, particularly in the legs and arms, caused by the impact of the vehicle striking the pedestrian. 
  • Head injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries, are also prevalent, especially if the pedestrian strikes their head on the ground or vehicle upon impact. 
  • Soft tissue injuries such as bruises, cuts, and abrasions are common, often occurring as the pedestrian is thrown or dragged by the vehicle. 
  • Additionally, pedestrians may suffer from internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, or psychological trauma, leading to long-term physical and emotional repercussions.

Working with an attorney can help ensure that you are receiving compensation not only for your medical bills, but also for lost wages, psychological trauma, and pain and suffering.
