Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Durham

Contact Our Durham Personal Injury Lawyers Today

Car and truck drivers are responsible for maintaining a safe distance from pedestrians who are walking alongside a roadway or in a parking lot. However, neglectful drivers often don’t notice pedestrians. In these instances, serious consequences can occur.

If you followed all traffic laws but were struck by a motor vehicle, chances are you were not at fault. Our Durham injury attorneys represent seriously injured pedestrians.

If you suffered injuries while walking responsibly on the sidewalk or crossing the street, our injury lawyers can help you seek financial compensation for:

  • Medical treatment, surgeries, hospital bills, and other future treatments
  • Missed wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other emotional damages
  • Loss of use of a body part
  • Other damages caused by the accident

Common Examples of Pedestrian Accidents & Injuries

Pedestrian accidents are, unfortunately, very frequent in North Carolina and across America. Because of the size and speed of motor vehicles, these accidents can cause serious harm.

Common vehicle-pedestrian collisions include:

  • Bumper impact — A car’s bumper can break a pedestrian’s legs or ankles, and cause spinal cord trauma and brain injuries.
  • Hood and windshield impact — If you land on a car or other vehicle, back and head injuries are common, sometimes resulting in paralysis and permanent disability.
  • Run over — These can be the most harmful accidents, causing multiple broken bones, internal bleeding, brain injuries and possibly death.
