Common pedestrian accident injuries
An average road car weighs over two tons, and, even when travelling at slow speeds, that 2,000 lbs hunk of metal against human flesh rarely loses. Serious damage can ensue, and when the speeds are increased… forget about it.
For these reasons, pedestrian auto accident victims sustain catastrophic injuries, such as:
- Bone fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Amputation injuries
- Internal organ damage
When accidents like these occur, not only do they cause tremendous physical pain in the moment, and for many years into the future; they also produce massive, seemingly impossible-to-pay hospital bills.
It is extremely important that you hire a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to help guide you through the proper steps to seek the proper medical treatment. Working with an award-winning pedestrian accident attorney can also help you pay for these illustrious sized bills up front, so you don’t have to worry about your family’s wellbeing while you continue your recovery.

How do pedestrian accidents happen?
Poor motor vehicle operation is the most common cause of pedestrian accidents and injuries. Of course, sometimes pedestrians are to blame, and you can read more about that on our blog [link to latest pedestrian blog post https://wilshirelawfirm.com/pedestrian-safety/pedestrian-accident-fatalities-rise/].
However, the burden is on the driver to make sure pedestrians are reasonably safe so long as they are located within protected territory set forth by the state of California (see: Vehicle Code 21950).
That doesn’t give you an excuse to walk into the middle of oncoming traffic whilst looking at social media on your phone!
The top causes of pedestrian accidents:
- Drunk driving
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Making a right turn against a red light without looking for pedestrians
- Making a left turn without looking for pedestrians
- Distracted driving, such as texting while driving
- Failing to yield right-of-way at marked crosswalks
