Pedestrian Accident Cases in Connecticut

Modern vehicles come with many safety features to protect drivers and passengers if they collide with other cars or stationary objects. The problem is when they hit vulnerable pedestrians.

The aftermath of a car hitting a person walking can be catastrophic. Several factors come into play here, like the speed and how the person was struck. Regardless, you know that the pedestrian will suffer injuries.

The challenge in these situations is gathering evidence to prove that the driver was at fault for the accident, which allows you to get fair compensation.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

The most common reason for pedestrian accidents is the negligence of the motorist. Most times, the driver is not paying attention to the road, or they fail to be cautious when driving near people who are walking in their vicinity.

Common reasons for pedestrian accidents include:

  • Failing to follow the right-of-way
  • Not following traffic rules like speeding
  • Not stopping at signs and intersections
  • Aggressive driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Not checking for pedestrians when making a turn

The Doctor Lawyer Team can help you with your pedestrian accident claims. Contact us to set up a consultation with a competent Connecticut pedestrian accident lawyer.

Pedestrian Accident Claims in Connecticut

Pedestrians are likely to suffer injuries if hit by motor vehicles. This can lead to brain trauma, spinal injuries, or broken bones. The victim may need extensive medical care that could take years.

On top of that, the injury can be severe enough to prevent the person from working for some time. In worst-case scenarios, victims are unable to work for the rest of their lives. That makes a significant change in their financial situation and quality of life.

Depending on the specific facts of the case, a victim can recover compensation for:

  • All medical expenses involved in the injury, potentially including future costs
  • Loss of income
  • Losing the ability to make money due to disability
  • Pain and suffering damages, including both physical and emotional
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Counseling services

Understanding the Comparative Negligence Rule in Connecticut

Comparative Negligence Rule in Connecticut can impact any pedestrian accident case. The law states that the victim can make a claim even if they are partially at fault for the accident. You need to prove that more than 50% of the cause lies with the other party.

An insurance company will automatically try to blame the victim to avoid paying out on the claim. The claim is reduced if the jury finds you are partially responsible for what happened. You will not be able to collect compensation if the other party proves you played a more significant role in the accident.

A competent pedestrian accident lawyer can help you build the best case for your situation. Contact The Doctor Lawyer Team to schedule a consultation.
