When a car strikes a pedestrian or bicyclist, the results can be devastating. Even when the collision was caused by the driver’s error or reckless behavior, the pedestrian is likely to be the only party who suffers serious injuries. In 2002, over 4,000 pedestrians across the US were killed in motor vehicle accidents.

Even successful legal action cannot truly correct the injustice that is done when careless drivers harm pedestrians. However, it can at least minimize the repercussions victims face, by helping them afford the medical and sometimes psychological treatment they need. If you have been struck by a reckless driver, call Tampa pedestrian accident attorneys at the Ruth Law Team at (888) 783-8378 to discuss your options.

Causes and Consequences of Pedestrian Accidents

Drivers cannot always avoid accidents involving pedestrians; jaywalkers, poor weather conditions, and the reckless actions of other drivers can all interfere with safe driving. However, many pedestrian accidents are caused by perfectly avoidable mistakes committed by drivers, such as:

Many negligent drivers who injure pedestrians suffer nothing more than damage to their cars. In contrast, the injuries their victims suffer may be very painful, debilitating, or even fatal. Courts try to make up for this disparity by allowing victims to file claims against guilty parties. Call a Tampa pedestrian car accident attorney for more details.
