Pedestrian Accident

The pedestrian accidents in Pittsburgh are more common than you think. Just like any other person on the road, which includes cyclists, motorcyclists, and motorists, the pedestrians are also entitled to rights that are often ignored or taken for granted. As a result, pedestrian accidents are becoming so rampant in the USA.

The responsibility of a Pittsburgh pedestrian accident lawyer is to determine whether you or your relative’s insurance company is liable to pay for the accident or not, or if the Pennsylvania Financial Responsibility Assigned Claims Plan is going to take care of the medical expenses. At Logue Law Group, we ensure that you get the rightful justice you deserve.

Pedestrian Accidents are More Common

According to the reports of the U. S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,

  • In 2009, 4092 pedestrians suffered from fatal injuries from motor vehicle accidents.
  • Every 9 minutes, one pedestrian gets injured in a vehicle crash.
  • Per day, around 11 pedestrians die in the hands of motor vehicle drivers.

Pedestrian accidents can happen at any place at any time, wherever a pedestrian is coming in front of a vehicle. Parking lot, sidewalks, crosswalks, shoulders, intersection, and any other place on the road can be the place where this accident might occur. Also, the risk is higher at night as the pedestrian is not visible in the dark or not wearing any reflective or retroreflective clothing. In any situation, if the motorist or the cyclist or the motorcyclist is not paying enough attention to the road, accident can happen which can cause serious injuries and even death. A Pittsburgh pedestrian accident lawyer will ensure that you get the rightful compensation when you or your loved one has become the victim of such an accident.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Through years, our Pittsburgh injury lawyers have been dealing with hundreds of cases involving pedestrian accidents. The most common thing that they have noticed is that no matter how careful a pedestrian is while crossing the road or at an intersection, someone else’s negligence can completely change their lives. The most common causes include,

  • Texting while driving
  • Being ignorant about the road
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Unnecessary speeding
  • Not yielding at the right time
  • Driving while tired
  • Not following signals
  • Improper passing
  • Keeping the lights off

In such accidents, even though the driver hardly sustains any injury, the pedestrian faces life altering injuries. Scaring, disfigurement, irreversible injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, loss of limb and death, are the common consequences of such an accident. Apart from all this, of course there is emotional trauma, loss of wages, loss of employment, degrading quality of life, and lifelong dependence on assistance. A Pittsburgh pedestrian accident lawyer will make sure in such cases, you get the justice and coverage you are entitled to.

Protecting the Rights of the Pedestrians After Accident

Pedestrian accidents can be a life changing episode for a victim and the surviving family. The extensive bill of medical care and treatment is not the only loss you are looking at. There will be,

  • Expenses of long term medical care that the victim will need in future
  • Lost wages during the time of hospitalization and recovery
  • Lost future potential employment and earning
  • Pain and suffering
  • Irreversible disability
  • Emotional trauma

You or your family must not suffer due to the driver’s negligence in the case of a pedestrian accident. That is why our Pittsburgh injury lawyer makes sure that the driver’s insurance claim pays for your loss. However, insurance coverage has a limit. Often the expenses and loss of a pedestrian accident are not completely covered by it. Our duty at Logue Law Group is to ensure you get the maximum claim benefit from the insurance company of the driver.

If the insurance coverage is not sufficient for you to manage the expenses of injuries and bills, then your next step should be filing litigation with the civil court for personal injury and if needed, wrongful death. We, at Logue Law Group, have enough experience to guide you through such a complex legal process.
