Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents | Insurance Obstacles
You’re going to hear from insurance companies that they’re very sorry you are so seriously injured, but you walked in front of that car and they are not going to pay you for your injuries because of that. They may even attempt to obtain a statement from you while you are in the hospital, on pain medications and unable to think clearly. They want to get rid of the responsibility for this accident, so they don’t have to give you anything.
This is especially devastating when you are suffering from serious injury. The injuries sustained from these injuries can take months to heal, and in some cases, you never heal. You do not want to give that statement to the insurance companies or you might not be able to get compensation for any of your injuries that could possibly affect you for the rest of your life.

- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal organ damage
If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you can file for wrongful death to get compensation because that person no longer can provide for your family both financially and emotionally. Because of this loss, you are missing out on the love and support you would have gotten had that person survived.
