How do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?

There are a number of situations that could lead to a driver hitting a pedestrian. Drivers could be:

  • Speeding
  • Committing traffic violations
  • Driving drunk
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Texting and driving or engaging in another form of distracted driving
  • Running a red light
  • Failing to check their blind spots
  • Ignoring pedestrians because they are looking for parking

Getting hit by a car can cause serious injuries that could affect victims for years or even the rest of their lives. That is why you need one of ou experienced personal injury attorneys on your side to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions. The Nye Law Group has the skilled lawyers you need to help you get the compensation you desperately need.

Types of Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians can suffer many serious injuries in a pedestrian accident, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Open-head injuries
  • Fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Paralysis

Pedestrians can also suffer less obvious injuries that they do not notice until years later after an injury has turned into a serious health problem. That is why it is important to get medical treatment immediately after a pedestrian accident.

Seeking immediate treatment will also provide you with documentation of your injuries that will help our Savannah pedestrian accident lawyers demonstrate that you have a case and that you should be compensated.

What to Do If You Are Injured in a Pedestrian Accident

If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, try to get eyewitness accounts of what happened. We can build a much stronger case with eyewitness accounts of the accident. Also, if you wait too long to talk to eyewitnesses, they could become unavailable.

Contact us immediately so we can review your claim. Valuable evidence could be lost if you wait. More importantly, if you wait too long you will not be able to pursue legal action at all. The statute of limitations creates strict deadlines for filing a pedestrian injury lawsuit. If you wait longer than the statute states, you will no longer be able to get compensation for what you have been through.

The Savannah pedestrian accident lawyers at The Nye Law Group are ready to review all the relevant information surrounding your accident. We will review the details of the accident scene, gather evidence from police reports and witnesses, and analyze any available photos or video of the incident. We will work to build a strong case that will help you get the compensation you deserve.

Types of Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, there are many types of compensation you may be entitled to, including:

  • Mental anguish
  • Physical pain
  • Hospitalization and other medical bills
  • Death-related damages
  • Lost income

In situations of gross negligence or reckless or outrageous conduct, we may also be able to seek punitive damages, which are meant to punish the responsible party and prevent similar actions from happening again.

The amount of compensation you may be entitled to depends on the specifics of your case, but you will never know if you do not contact us to review your claim.
