Pedestrian accidents occur when an individual tries to cross a highway or busy street, or encounters hazards along their on-foot route, including parking lot defects, construction sites or poor walkways. In 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), reported nearly 6,000 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States.
A pedestrian accident is usually caused by the negligence of an auto or motorcycle driver, and are often a result of driver distraction. Damages from a pedestrian versus automobile accident case can be very serious, and include high medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or loss of a normal life.

Consequences of Pedestrian Injury Cases
Some states, regardless of fault, allow a pedestrian to receive compensation for an accident involving a motor vehicle even if the pedestrian is at fault. A good lawyer is often needed to navigate the complex laws of each state. Additionally, most pedestrian injury cases spark serious inquiry, and victims need a good lawyer on their team to help stay abreast to what is happening. Pedestrian injuries can include:
- Back and head damage
- Complete debilitation
The last thing most victims want is to be answering questions after they’ve sustained injury, which is where a well-informed Bakersfield pedestrian accident attorney who will investigate each case individually is of benefit.
