Pedestrian Accidents

People WalkingPedestrians have essentially no protection if a vehicle strikes them. Seat belts and airbags help protect motorist; helmets and safety gear help protect motorcyclists and bicyclists; but nothing helps lessens the force of the impact a pedestrian endures. Pedestrians who survive being struck by vehicles often suffer very serious injuries or risk of death, even at reasonably low speeds, such as 35 mph.

If you or a loved one is injured in a pedestrian accident, you need to take action and hold the responsible party accountable for their negligence. Attorney John B. Kenison, Jr. has represented personal injury victims for nearly 30 years and is accessible 24 hours a day as a resource for your legal needs.

What are the Most Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries?

Pedestrians hit by cars tend to experience permanent debilitating injuries and disfigurement even if they survive their injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), broken bones, spinal cord injuries (SCIs), internal bleeding, crush injuries or amputation of limbs, impairment of vital organs, or wrongful death.

Unfortunately, serious injuries like these often change the ability of accident victims to return to their lives. Many must either leave their jobs or scale back dramatically. Some require daily care.

What are the Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?

Attorney Kenison has been representing pedestrians for decades, so he knows the many factors may play a part in a pedestrian accident but the chief underlying cause is generally attributed to driver negligence. Drivers who fail to pay attention, who speed, who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks, who are distracted by cell phones or other devices, who disobey traffic signs and signals, make turns without looking, or who drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can all be the cause of pedestrian accidents.

Often, pedestrian accidents turn into “hit-and-run” accidents, especially if the injuries to the pedestrian seem severe and there is very little traffic. Drivers often panic after a pedestrian accident and leave the scene as they know even a slight impact can result in severe injuries to the pedestrian.

In the aftermath of a pedestrian accident, it is always in your best interests to seek the help of a personal injury lawyer like Attorney Kenison to obtain full compensation for your injuries.

"My husband was in a Motorcycle accident on June 11, 2014. He was seriously injured and spent several weeks in a trauma unit and 4 weeks in a rehab facility after several surgeries. I called John Kenison the day after the accident and he walked me through the difficult process of how to handle hospital bills and how to contact the Insurance companies involved. My husband was out of work for 4 months and Kenison Law was able to help us recover all loss wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. They are a caring law firm and are able to explain complex information during a vehicle difficult situation. I would highly recommend this law office." M. H.
★★★★★
"In the late summer of 2015, I had the misfortune of falling in a public place of business through no fault of my own. I was seriously injured, both my legs, which resulted in almost 6 months of modified bed rest and convalescing. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed with doctors; specialists; physical therapists and many other wonderful people. As if this was not daunting enough, it was told to me, in this time of utter chaos, I needed to engage an attorney. I have never had to hire an attorney..." R.W.W.
