Pedestrian Accident FAQs

What to do after getting hit by a car

After a collision with a motor vehicle, you will likely be in a state of shock. The most important thing is to remain calm and assess yourself for injuries. Don’t move if you feel injured unless you are in immediate danger where you are. Wait for paramedics to arrive and safely move you. If you suffered an injury to your neck, back, or spine, moving the wrong way can worsen the damage. Always call 911 and request an ambulance after a pedestrian collision. Injuries are highly likely, even if adrenaline from the collision prevents you from feeling them at first.


If the other driver remained at the scene, gather his or her information. Get the driver’s full name, phone number, license plate, and insurance information. Your cell phone can be a helpful tool for recording this information after a crash. Take photos of the scene of the collision and your injuries if you can. If you are too injured to collect information, ask the reporting police officer to take down information for you. In most cases, the officer will create a police report with critical information.


In the event of a pedestrian hit-and-run, remain on the scene and find out if anyone witnessed the collision. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses. If possible, note the license plate numbers or make/model/color of the vehicle that struck you. Take note of all nearby businesses or parking lots to revisit later. They may have security cameras that captured footage of the vehicle that struck you. Call the police and report a hit-and-run. Visit a hospital for your injuries as soon as possible. Keep a copy of your medical records, police report, bills, and other documents relating to the crash. Once you receive treatment for injuries and can think clearly, contact an injury attorney.

What Makes Pedestrians More Vulnerable?

There are thousands of deaths and serious injuries in the United States every year. The reason for the high number of pedestrian injuries and deaths is a combination of driver/pedestrian negligence and confusing city infrastructure. Pedestrians are vulnerable to collisions for reasons such as:


  • Age

    • Elderly pedestrians may not see or hear crosswalk signals correctly and walk out into the road when it’s not safe to cross. The elderly may also cross more slowly, increasing potential chances for collisions. Children are also at increased risk, as they may dart out into traffic unexpectedly.
  • Alcohol use

    • Intoxicated pedestrians are at a higher risk of collisions because they may walk in the roadway or jaywalk. In about 48% of fatal pedestrian accidents, either the driver or the pedestrian was alcohol-impaired.
  • Speeding

    •  Speeding drivers increase pedestrian vulnerability because they are less able to come to complete stops before crosswalks and intersections. They may run red lights or roll through stop signs, increasing the likelihood of striking pedestrians.
  • Unsafe intersections

    •  Intersections can be confusing and unsafe for pedestrians. They cater to vehicles and don’t make it obvious who has the right-of-way. Lack of marked crosswalks and pedestrian control signals can also increase the danger of walking.
  • Lack of visibility

    • Walking at night is more dangerous than walking during the day. At night, pedestrians can be difficult to see. Wearing bright, reflective clothes or carrying a flashlight can improve pedestrian safety.
  • Negligent drivers

    • Drivers who are drunk, drowsy, distracted, or otherwise negligent put pedestrians at the greatest risk. They can make fatal mistakes that injure and kill pedestrians. These accidents are always preventable with due care behind the wheel.


Pedestrians are our most vulnerable roadway users. All motorists must take due care to prevent pedestrian collisions as much as possible. Pedestrians do not have the hard metal shell that motorists do to protect them in collisions, nor do they have a bicycle to act as a buffer. When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, it hits the vulnerable, unprotected body. Areas such as school zones and construction zones are particularly dangerous for pedestrians because they must come in close proximity to traffic. Collisions in these protected areas may result in greater penalties on the at-fault driver. You could seek advice from a car accident lawyer to see what your options are.

Common Injuries When Vehicles Strike Pedestrians

Adult victims most commonly sustain injuries to the lower extremities, including the knees and lower legs. The front bumper of the oncoming vehicle typically first strikes the lower extremities, causing the pedestrian to fold toward the point of impact. The pedestrian’s upper body and head may then come into contact with the hood of the vehicle. Finally, the pedestrian may collide with other parts of the vehicle, such as the windshield or roof, or the roadway depending on the speed of the crash.


The severity of pedestrian injuries will depend on the speed of the vehicle, the height of the vehicle, and the height of the person. Child victims will more commonly suffer injuries to the chest, neck, and head, as the front of the vehicle collides with these areas first. The most common types of injuries in pedestrian collisions are bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, and superficial injuries.


Minor pedestrian accidents can result in lacerations, contusions, and broken bones, while serious collisions can lead to traumatic injuries to the brain, spinal cord, and internal organs. While most people will eventually recover from pedestrian accident injuries, some will live with lifelong disabilities, disfigurements, or chronic pain. These are what the court calls “catastrophic” injuries – they are eligible for the greatest amount of compensation in a personal injury case. If a loved one died in a pedestrian collision, you may be able to file a lawsuit for wrongful death.

Establishing Negligence and Liability in Pedestrian Collisions

At Fielding Law, we have the ability to go up against virtually any defendant in a pedestrian collision case. We’ve handled cases where the defendant was a driver, a product manufacturer, and a government entity. There may be many entities at fault for a single collision. It often takes help from an attorney to investigate the pedestrian crash, identify the defendant(s), and choose the best outlet for recovery. The right choice for you may be settlement negotiations with an insurance company, a claim through your own insurer (if involved in a hit-and-run), or a personal injury lawsuit.


To prove your claim and receive damage recovery, you must establish the other party’s negligence. This involves showing the defendant owed you a duty of care, breached this duty, and caused or at least contributed to your collision. Examples of a breach of duty of care are a driver who was texting behind the wheel, a product manufacturer that created a defective crosswalk signal, and a city that failed to incorporate a safe place for pedestrians to cross. There are many possible breaches of duty that may have caused your accident. An experienced pedestrian accident lawyer can help you prove your case in front of a judge or jury.


There is a chance that you may have been at least partially at fault for your recent accident. You may have entered a crosswalk without waiting for the signal or jaywalked where there was no crosswalk. Even if you contributed to your injuries you may still have options so contact our personal injury lawyers at Fielding Law to discuss your options. You could be eligible for compensation, contact our Salt Lake City pedestrian accident lawyers or the Mesquite pedestrian accident lawyers to help you get the compensation you deserve..
