Pedestrian Accidents

Fairfax Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Personal Injury Firm for Fairfax, Woodbridge & Fairfax & Prince William Counties

Pedestrian accidents can be life-altering events. Unlike car accidents, where occupants are shielded by metal and airbags, pedestrians are entirely exposed to the impact of a collision. This makes pedestrian accidents statistically more dangerous, with a higher risk of severe injuries and fatalities.

At Law Office Of Andrew S. Kasmer, we recognize pedestrian accidents' devastating impact on individuals and their families. Our seasoned attorneys have a wealth of experience and a proven track record of securing the compensation and justice that accident victims deserve. 

We leverage over 30 years of professional experience to challenge insurance companies and at-fault parties, working to secure the full support you need for recovery and future security. We know this may be one of the most challenging times in your life. We never take that for granted or the trust you place in our firm to help you successfully navigate the legal process.

Pedestrian Injuries

As mentioned above, pedestrians are more at risk for severe or even fatal injuries than motorists and their passengers. Even at slow speeds, such as 30 mph, pedestrians struck by cars can sustain life-changing injuries. 

These injuries can include head and brain injuries, multiple broken bones, internal injuries, such as organ damage, soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, muscle tears, and more.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are more likely to be injured in accidents in urban areas with dense traffic. However, any pedestrian can become the victim of a negligence-based accident when various factors occur. 

Common causes of these accidents can include:

  • Driver distraction: This is a leading cause. Things such as using a mobile phone, adjusting the car radio, or using navigation systems divert attention from the road.
  • Failure to observe traffic controls: Drivers who ignore stop signs, traffic lights, or pedestrian right-of-way at crosswalks significantly increase the risk of accidents.
  • Speeding: Exceeding speed limits reduces a driver's reaction time to unexpected pedestrian movements and increases the severity of an impact.
  • Driving under the influence: Alcohol and drugs impair judgment, coordination, and reaction times, making it difficult for drivers to respond appropriately to pedestrians.
  • Poor visibility: Accidents are more likely to occur at night or in conditions like fog and rain, where drivers' visibility of pedestrians is compromised.
  • Turning vehicles: Many accidents happen when vehicles turn at intersections, when drivers fail to notice pedestrians crossing, or when drivers misjudge their speed.
  • Backing-up accidents: Vehicles backing out of driveways or parking spaces pose significant risks, especially to small children and other pedestrians who might be in the vehicle's blind spot.
  • Infrastructure issues: Inadequate pedestrian infrastructure, such as missing sidewalks, crosswalks, pedestrian signals, and poorly designed intersections, make it challenging for pedestrians to navigate streets safely.
  • Pedestrian behavior: Jaywalking, walking while intoxicated, or engaging in distracting activities (e.g., using smartphones) can also lead to accidents, underscoring the importance of vigilance.

Pedestrian accidents frequently occur at crosswalks, parking lots, public transportation hubs, marked and unmarked intersections, and on roadsides without sidewalks.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer? 

In most pedestrian accident cases, you will deal with the at-fault party’s insurer. Insurance providers, driven by profit motives, often employ strategies to minimize payouts. These tactics can include disputing the severity of your injuries, questioning your account of the accident, or offering settlements far below what is fair and necessary for your recovery. 

Our seasoned personal injury lawyers are familiar with these practices and know how to support your claim for effective negotiations. We are here to protect your rights and fight for compensation that reflects the true extent of your injuries and losses. 

Without legal representation, you may be disadvantaged, potentially accepting settlements that do not cover long-term medical costs, rehabilitation, or lost income. Law Office Of Andrew S. Kasmer not only levels the playing field but also provides invaluable peace of mind, allowing you to focus on your recovery while our legal team navigates the legal complexities.
