Kenosha Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Each day, public sidewalks, crosswalks, and streets are filled with pedestrians making their way to and from work, school, and social events. In many cases, these individuals may find themselves walking next to areas of heavy traffic. If a pedestrian is struck by a car, truck, motorcycle, or other vehicle, he or she may suffer serious injuries or loss-of-life.
Accidents involving pedestrians can be very traumatic for the individuals involved and their family members. If a person is injured in an accident, he or she may be eligible for compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and other damages. If a pedestrian is killed by a motorist, surviving family members may be able to pursue compensation for emotional and mental trauma, loss of support, and probate costs.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Because of the close proximity of pedestrians and automobiles on many roads, it only takes a tiny mistake to result in the tragic death of a pedestrian. Common causes of pedestrian-automobile accidents include:
- Drunk Drivers
- Failure to obey traffic signals and stop signs
- Driver Error
- Aggressive or negligent driving
- Auto defects or malfunction
Pedestrians who are injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle may face expensive medical costs, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket expenses that are not covered by their health insurance coverage. In the event of an accident, they may be eligible for compensation from the driver responsible for the collision.
