Virginia Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

In Virginia, the number of pedestrian accidents is increasing every year. In 2018, 1,623 pedestrian accidents occurred, and 1,502 pedestrians were injured in those accidents. The most common pedestrian accidents occur at crosswalks and roadways where sidewalks aren’t available for pedestrian use. These accidents are caused by distracted or drunk driving, poor street lighting, lack of safe sidewalks, and other factors that the pedestrian cannot control.

Filing a Claim for Your Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrians who have been injured after being hit by a vehicle are entitled to file a claim against the at-fault party like any other automobile accident. This claim can cover any medical fees that have accumulated since your accident, like emergency room treatment, surgery costs, therapy, treatment center fees, medications, etc.

Your pedestrian accident claim could request compensation for not just your medical fees, but compensation for the negative inflicted upon on your quality of life. For example, you may be restricted from participating in your hobbies like you normally would. Those involved in pedestrian accidents are usually injured and are unable to return to work.

If you or a loved one was involved in a pedestrian accident at no fault of your own, you could be entitled to compensation for any economic and quality of life losses you have suffered.
