Pedestrian Accident Attorney in Minneapolis

Fighting to Hold the Responsible Parties Accountable

Pedestrian accidents happen too often. They occur when an individual is simply walking along a roadway off of the driving surface itself, when walking along a sidewalk, or when legally crossing the road. Some of us like to walk on a nice day while others use walking as their form of transportation. You may like to take your dogs for a walk or walk to the park with your children. No matter what you are doing, a pedestrian accident in which you are the victim is not what you have in mind.

Even when walking defensively, an accident can still happen. In an instant, your whole world can change and life as you know it will never be the same. Nevertheless, there are solutions, and a Minneapolis pedestrian accident lawyer can help.

Call our firm at (612) 200-1526 or fill out an online contact form to learn more about how we can help you after a serious accident.

Pedestrian Accident Facts

Thousands of pedestrians are killed on an annual basis due to an automobile coming into contact with them. Some of the most common causes include drivers who do not observe road signs, drivers who are speeding, and drivers failing to obey stop lights and signs. However, drivers are not always the ones at fault. If public safety equipment is poorly maintained, guardrails or bridges are not maintained well, debris flies from a vehicle or a vehicle goes out of control due to a faulty part, then a pedestrian accident can occur.

The following are some of the most common injuries that occur in pedestrian accidents:

  • Head or brain injuries
  • Spinal cord and back injuries
  • Limb amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Tibial plateau fracture
  • Organ damage and other internal injuries
  • Permanent disability
  • Wrongful death

What to Do after an Accident

After the accident, you do not want to turn away any medical care even if you feel that you are okay. If you did turn away care and your injuries became evident later, you will need the opinion of a doctor regarding the cause of your injuries. Your Minneapolis pedestrian accident attorney can work on gathering more evidence in your case, such as police reports, witness statements, and working with experts that reconstruct the accident scene. Medical professionals can also be called upon to provide an expert opinion in the case.

Right after the accident, you need to get the names and contact information of witnesses if you are able. This can be difficult to do, as there can be a lot of chaos and confusion right after an accident. You also should contact an attorney to discuss the accident as soon as you're able. You can then work together to form a strong case in which you can obtain the compensation that you deserve for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damages you have incurred.
