Suffering From A Pedestrian Accident? Get The Help You Deserve.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over half of traffic-related fatalities — more than 63% — are pedestrians.
When a loved one or family member dies or you suffer a personal injury when struck while out for a walk or run, it is important that you call the attorneys at Anderson, Moschetti & Taffany, PLLC. The wrongful death of a loved one or serious injuries from an accident could change the course of your life forever.
As in many other cities, cars and pedestrians all have to share the streets and follow the rules of the road. A moment’s distraction at a light can cause a vehicle to collide with a pedestrian, creating tragic consequences. Because pedestrians do not have the protection of a car’s structure around them, the results of such a collision can create a lifetime of physical disability and pain.
Injuries resulting from a pedestrian accident include:
- Multiple fractures
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI), including whiplash
- Spinal cord injuries — including paralysis, fractures, paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Amputated limbs
Even if a vehicle is moving slowly, the impact of an individual striking the ground could cause fractures or organ damage. The medical costs could quickly escalate to thousands of dollars and continue to climb long into the future. Physical therapy, disability equipment and lost wages may result after your accident. The resources required to restore your health may make you feel frustrated and discouraged. Our attorneys will work to get the compensation you deserve.

Many factors can result in a pedestrian accident. Often an accident occurs from driver negligence, but other factors can contribute to injure individuals:
- Weather conditions
- Poor road conditions
- Poor lighting conditions
- Lack of appropriate road signs and traffic signals
- Lack of pedestrian separation areas (sidewalks, overpasses, medians)
