  • What Are the Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

    Pedestrian accident causes can range from someone darting out into oncoming traffic to not paying attention in an intersection. Some additional causes of Gainesville pedestrian accidents include,

    • Hitting a pedestrian crossing the street when passing another vehicle.
    • Turning and merging can be difficult on busy roads. A driver may fail to see a pedestrian as they speed up to merge or make their turn.
    • While backing up, a driver might not notice a pedestrian. Typically, this type of accident occurs in driveways and parking lots.  

    Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents in Gainesville. Although texting and driving are usually the culprits, people are also guilty of talking to passengers, eating, reading, and changing the radio while driving.

  • Common Injuries in Gainesville Pedestrian Accidents

    • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
    • Spinal cord injuries (SCIs)
    • Broken bones
    • Amputated limbs
    • Internal injuries
    • Contusions and lacerations

    Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents can also result in a fatality. You may be able to file a wrongful death claim, but every case is unique. Talk to one of the specialists at Morgan & Morgan to learn more.

  • How Morgan & Morgan Can Help with Your Pedestrian Accident Case

    We have a nationwide network of over 1,000 attorneys. If we decide your pedestrian accident case has merit, we can help ensure you receive full and fair compensation by,

    • Getting a copy of the police accident report
    • Collecting any video of the accident
    • Gathering witness statements when applicable
    • Producing expert testimony
    • Reconstruction of the accident

    If you can’t reach a fair and acceptable settlement with the insurance company, we can take your personal injury case to civil court. We will handle all of the details so you can concentrate on your recovery. We do recommend refraining from accepting a settlement from the insurance provider until speaking with one of our specialists. Once you accept a settlement offer, your case is considered closed. You can’t go back and file another claim, even if you still have expenses relating to the pedestrian accident.

    Sometimes, the pedestrian is partially to blame for the accident. You may still be able to file a personal injury claim. Florida is a comparative fault state, so as long as you’re not over 50% responsible for the accident, you may be able to file for compensation.
