Causes of Pedestrian-Auto Collisions

Pedestrian-auto accidents are usually caused by negligent drivers including drunk driving or hit and run situations. Other factors that contribute to this type of accident include poor visibility and failure to properly yield to pedestrians at intersections and crosswalks.

Common Injuries & Compensation

Common injuries for pedestrian-auto accidents include road rash, broken bones, lacerations, head trauma, catastrophic injuries or even death. If you have been hit by a car and are suffering from injuries, you may be able to file medical expenses under the driver’s car insurance coverage or under your own health insurance coverage.
