Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians may be injured in a variety of situations. An injury can occur when children are playing in urban or residential areas, for instance, or when an individual is out for their morning jog. Additionally, cars parked illegally may create a visual obstruction for pedestrians.

What most pedestrian accident claims come down to is human error. Typically, motorists are not looking out for people on foot (not to mention cyclists, skateboarders, and others), so many pedestrian accidents are actually preventable.

Common causes of such accidents include motorists:

  • Making left turns without looking left
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Driving while distracted
  • Speeding or otherwise driving recklessly

Crashes involving pedestrians can be difficult to evaluate without the assistance of an experienced attorney. You may have other things going on in the immediate aftermath of a crash, such as serious injuries that must be tended to. Our team can investigate your claim and bring your claim to court while you focus on recovery.

What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident

Do the following as soon as possible after a pedestrian accident:

  • Call 911: If you or anyone else has been severely injured, call 911 immediately. Otherwise, make sure to seek medical attention shortly after leaving the accident scene.
  • Take pictures: Photograph as much of the accident scene as possible. Make sure to also take pictures of any injuries you have sustained.
  • Exchange insurance information: Get the motorist’s insurance and contact information for the insurance claim.
  • Talk to eyewitnesses: If anyone witnessed the accident, they may be able to provide testimony on your behalf. Make sure to ask any eyewitnesses for their contact information just in case.
  • File an accident report: Call the police to the scene to file an accident report. Ask for the report confirmation number for your records.
  • Reach out to an attorney: Before accepting any settlement offers from the insurance companies, contact a local pedestrian accident lawyer for a free consultation. That way, you can learn about your rights and whether you have a viable case worth pursuing.

When Should You Consider Contacting Page Law Firm, P.C. When You've Been Injured As A Pedestrian?

The answer to this question is whenever you've been injured as a pedestrian, you should contact an attorney. The State of Virginia recognizes the defenses of contributory negligence and assumption of the risk. Without an attorney, it can be very hard to stand up against insurers and others who are experienced with such procedures.


The first and foremost consideration is the nature and extent of your injuries and losses. Minor injuries and losses sometimes can be settled quickly with the insurance company. Serious injuries, such as a brain injury, may take several years to resolve because you must first determine the ultimate outcome of the injured person. The insurance companies will try to get you to accept a quick settlement offer before determining the full extent of your injuries—we will fight for your right to maximum compensation.
