Pedestrian Accident

Law Office of Teresa P. Williams Pedestrian Accidents

Auto Accident Attorney in Clearwater, FL. Also Serving Palm Harbor, Pinellas Park, & Largo, FL.

Reckless drivers are not just a threat to other drivers – they can also cause life threatening pedestrian accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there was a 3% increase in the amount of pedestrians killed in traffic accidents. If you or a loved one are struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian, the experience can be terrifying and because of the speed and weight of even the smallest vehicles, the result of that crash can leave you or a family member dealing with significant and devastating injuries as well as financial burdens.

Pedestrian Accidents – What Do I Do?
The impact sustained when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle often results in life-threatening, serious injuries that include broken bones, spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries as well as lacerations.

The consequence of such force against the unprotected human body frequently begins the family’s worst nightmare of their loved one being transported by an ambulance to the emergency room, wheeled into surgery, a post-surgery hospital stay as well as rehabilitation in a rehab facility – and all this care costs many thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages – all incurred while that pedestrian is out of work trying to recuperate, with their family dealing with the physical aspects and limitations of the injuries and the financial impact to the family as well.

It is always recommended that you:

  • Call 911 to receive medical help. Get to safety – if possible – get to the side of the road and out of traffic.
  • Do not leave the scene of the accident before help arrives – You might not realize how severe your injuries are.
  • Ask for names and phone numbers of witnesses.
  • Don’t make any statements to anyone, including the driver or their insurance carrier. If possible, take photos of the scene, the vehicle involved, their tag number as well as their auto insurance card
For some, the need for extended long term care resulting in months or years of being unable to work, is a reality most families are ill prepared for.
