What Is a Pedestrian Accident?
When someone operating a motorized vehicle injures someone on foot or on a bicycle, this is known as a pedestrian accident. Pedestrian accidents usually occur due to the negligence or the impairment of a motorist or a pedestrian. A common example of pedestrian accidents are hit and runs, where a careless motorist harms a pedestrian and flees the scene. Pedestrian accidents can, however, also describe cases in which the pedestrian is the one who acts negligently, putting both themselves and others in danger.

After properly identifying whether your accident qualifies, you can go ahead with finding suitable legal representation.
Does My Accident Qualify?
A pedestrian accident is categorized as a personal injury accident. For an occurrence to qualify as a personal injury accident, the injury must have resulted due to negligence. This means that the injury was caused because one party failed to do something which a person of ordinary prudence would have done in the same situation. Hit and runs usually qualify as pedestrian accidents, thus also qualifying as personal injury accidents.
Our lawyers work to help you prove that your pedestrian accident was due to negligence on the part of the other party. We can work with you to help determine if your accident is a personal injury accident under the subcategory of a pedestrian accident.
I Was the Motorist: Does My Accident Qualify?
Though pedestrians are often the ones injured in accidents with motorists, pedestrian accident claims are not limited only to pedestrians. If you as the motorist were injured in the accident, and negligence on the part of the pedestrian can be proved as the cause of injury, the situation qualifies as a personal injury case. Our personal injury lawyers work with both motorists and pedestrians to help them get justice.
