Types of Pedestrian Accidents

It is no surprise many pedestrian accidents involve cars. All too often, cars strike people using a crosswalk, waiting for a bus, or walking on a sidewalk. However, there are many other types of pedestrian accidents.

Examples include but are not limited to:

  • A jogger running into a pedestrian because they are not looking or paying attention. 
  • Someone on a bike, skateboard, or motorized scooter crashing into a pedestrian. 
  • A pedestrian falling on a walkway that has a serious tripping hazard. 
  • An object falling onto a pedestrian while walking on a sidewalk. 
  • An uncontrolled dog knocking a pedestrian over.

Regardless of the situation, a person can recover damages if they prove the at-fault party acted “negligently.” Doing so requires demonstrating how the at-fault party violated their duty of care to the pedestrian, whether by disobeying traffic laws, failing to repair their property’s walkways, securing objects that could fall, or anything else.

The Damages You Can Recover 

Every pedestrian accident case is unique. While some might come away with scratches and bruises, others can be hospitalized with anything from broken bones to a traumatic brain injury. Similarly, the dollar amount of available damages will vary. However, there are general things people can pursue. 

These include but are not limited to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Reduced wages
  • Loss of earning capacity 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement 

The Statute of Limitations for Illinois Pedestrian Accidents 

Individuals in Illinois generally have two years from the date of an accident to file an injury claim. Although this might seem like a long period, gathering the evidence and documentation a claim requires can take significant time. It is best not to wait to attempt to recover damages for injuries in a pedestrian accident.
