Pedestrian Accidents are on the Rise
When a pedestrian is injured by a motor vehicle, the resultant injuries are usually extremely serious or fatal. It does not take much velocity for a car to cause catastrophic injuries or death when it collides with someone walking or standing nearby. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it is advised that you contact our West Palm Beach pedestrian accident lawyer. At the Law Offices of Casey D.

With the highest peer review rating, and exceptional results in recent cases, we believe that we offer the highest quality legal services in the West Palm Beach area, and beyond.
Pedestrian accidents take place through a range of negligent actions. A person may be walking legally in a crosswalk when a distracted or drunk driver fails to stop. A vehicle may go out of control, jump a curb and impact an innocent person standing or walking on the sidewalk. It must be proven that the driver was driving in a negligent or reckless manner, which may be simple or could require further investigation. There are instances where mechanical failure has caused a vehicle to go out of control. In those instances, the car manufacturer, repair shop, or others may have liability.
A thorough investigation needs to be conducted to determine the negligent party. The serious injuries can include crushed or broken bones, head trauma, deep lacerations, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, loss of limb, and more, including death. An injured pedestrian could easily incur extensive bills for lengthy hospital stays, physical therapy and may have suffered such severe damage that it might render a person unable to ever work again. All of these damages must be sought in a claim or lawsuit.
