Common Situations Leading to Pedestrian Accidents

Unfortunately, there are lots of opportunities for pedestrian accidents to occur in and around Lacey, Washington.

For instance:

  • Distracted driving. Cell phone usage is an all-to-common ingredient for accidents.
  • Driving under the influence. Drivers choosing to drive drunk have slower reaction times. Often, drunk drivers may make other risky decisions, such as running red lights or speeding.
  • Intersections, crosswalks, parking lots. Often, drivers will watch for other cars, and pay less attention to pedestrians and other road users. This is a particular problem when you have a mix of road users coming, going, or turning.
  • Poor visibility or weather. Fog, rain, and ice can increase the likelihood of accidents. Pedestrians should take extra care when heading out in inclement weather and wear brightly colored clothing.

No matter what the circumstances of your accident were, one of our attorneys would like to hear from you. We can thoroughly investigate what happened and inform you of your legal rights.

Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

Without a doubt, pedestrians are vulnerable road users. In fact, 20% of all traffic fatalities and serious injuries on Washington’s roads are pedestrians or bicyclists (source: Target Zero). A pedestrian has nothing to protect herself from the impact of a vehicle.

Here are some of the more common injuries in a pedestrian-involved accident:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries
  • Emotional scarring and distress

The medical costs to treat these types of injuries can place an enormous financial toll on victims. A skilled attorney can fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.
