KaplunMarx - The Experienced Team for Pedestrian Accident Cases
Pedestrian accidents have been on the rise every year in Pennsylvania. As a personal injury law firm, we continually get more and more calls from people (or families of victims) who have been hurt or killed by careless drivers while walking.
Pedestrians are especially susceptible to significant injuries in the event they are hit by a motor vehicle - especially these days as larger vehicles like full size pickups and SUV's have become so much more prevalent.
Additionally, cars, suv's and trucks keep getting more powerful with quicker acceleration off the line. What used to be the acceleration from a green light for a high end sports car is now typical even for a regular passenger car. Impatient drivers with a heavy foot are a real danger to pedestrians.
Pennsylvania also has a lot of issues with outdated traffic design leading to dangerous exposures to pedestrians.
If another person’s negligence is the cause of your injuries, you have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit to seek financial compensation from the responsible party.
If you or a loved one were struck by a negligent driver while traveling by foot, a hardworking Southampton pedestrian accident lawyer could be highly beneficial. A reliable injury attorney could help you build a strong claim against the at-fault driver and hold them legally liable for your resulting damages.

Common Pedestrian Accident Case Factors
Unlike car accidents, in which both vehicles have protective gear, pedestrians are left unprotected. This means that catastrophic injury can occur when a pedestrian is struck by a car, truck, or motorcycle.
A pedestrian is a person walking or running while on foot, usually along a road, sidewalk, or other developed area. This means that just feet away are fast-moving motor vehicles. When a motor vehicle driver is negligent, this can cause them to engage in actions that may lead to significant harm to a person walking nearby.
Pedestrian accidents commonly involve:
- Drivers failing to yield at intersections or crosswalks
- Motorists failing to maintain their lane and colliding with people on sidewalks
- Drivers losing control of a vehicle and crashing into buildings, homes, or stores
- Falls due to holes, broken sidewalks, and other hazards
If another person is responsible for the accident, a pedestrian should consider seeking legal guidance from a diligent attorney in the area.
Common Injuries in Pedestrian Cases
Catastrophic or even fatal injuries often result when a negligent driver strikes a person traveling by foot. Attorneys in Southampton often see accidents involving pedestrians result in:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Severe cuts and bruising
- Traumatic brain injuries
The severity of the injuries depend on the specific circumstances of the collision. In any case, an experienced attorney could prove beneficial in the recovery of fair compensation on behalf of the injured pedestrian.
Compensation Available in Pedestrian Accident Cases
Following an accident, the costs of medical treatment lost work, and long-term care can quickly pile up. This often leaves claimants suffering financial burdens in addition to their pain and suffering resulting from the incident. Fortunately, a skilled lawyer in Southampton could help an injured pedestrian seek financial restitution for their economic and non-economic losses, including:
- Lost income and earning capacity
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation services
- Property damage
- Wrongful death
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
However, to successfully recover compensation, a claimant and their local attorney must prove the defendant was negligent and directly responsible for the pedestrian’s losses.
