Dallas Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

If you have been seriously injured or suffered significant physical, financial, or emotional losses as the result of being struck by a vehicle, a pedestrian accident lawyer in Dallas can help seek compensation.

The benefits of walking—both as exercise and to lower your carbon footprint—are well documented. Sadly, many thousands of pedestrians are injured or killed in collisions with cars, motorcycles, buses, and trucks around the country every year.

At Chris Lewis & Associates P.C., we combine the resources of a large firm with the compassion and empathy of a home-town team to serve victims of pedestrian accidents in our area. If you’ve suffered injuries, lost income, or experienced emotional trauma as the result of such an accident, an experienced Dallas pedestrian accident lawyer from our firm can help you seek full compensation.

Factors in Pedestrian Accidents

As is often the case in pedestrian accidents, the injuries and losses sustained by the victim are caused by the reckless, negligent, or otherwise unsound decision making of the driver behind the wheel.

Some ways that a driver can be negligent in a pedestrian accident include:

  • By driving drunk or under the influence of another substance
  • By speeding or driving recklessly
  • By ignoring relevant traffic laws, such as by running a red light or stop sign.
  • By driving with distractions, such as by using an app
  • By backing out of a parking spot without properly scanning their environment
  • By failing to yield to pedestrians, bikers, others in a crosswalk or pedestrian zone

Types of Injuries Caused by Pedestrian Accidents

Given the nature of collisions between motor vehicles and pedestrians, the results can be absolutely devastating.

Pedestrians, as opposed to drivers of a car or other vehicles, have little-to-no protection from the impact of the collision.

Some injuries that pedestrians can sustain from being struck by a car include:

  • Death
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Others

When considering the impact of such an accident, an experienced pedestrian collision attorney can help you come to a complete understanding of the losses you’ve suffered.

In addition to your medical bills, the impact of being temporarily unable to work, or of losing your earning capacity completely has the potential to cause financial ruin.

Furthermore, the emotional toll of your accident could contribute to actual economic losses—such as fees incurred for consulting psychological or psychiatric services— or intangible, non-economic losses, such as the trauma of feeling like you can’t enjoy your life the way you did before.

Although these things can feel devastating, it’s important to keep perspective. If someone else’s reckless actions put your life in jeopardy, an attorney from Chris Lewis & Associates P.C. can fight for you tirelessly to ensure that justice be served.
