Pedestrian Accident Types
To qualify for compensation after a pedestrian accident, you will have had to abide by the rules of the road. Based on this “duty of care” principle, we can fight for your compensation if a driver acted recklessly and didn’t follow the rules.
Some of the most common forms of pedestrian accidents that we assist with include:
Drivers are expected to abide by the rules of the road and be aware of their surroundings. So when a driver causes an accident or injures a pedestrian while texting or being otherwise distracted, they are liable to pay compensation to those they injure.
Driving Under the Influence
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal, and intoxicated drivers frequently injure pedestrians. Impaired drivers are always liable for any injuries or harm sustained by pedestrians they hit.
Left Hand Turns
Everyone knows how much trouble left-hand turns can cause for both drivers and pedestrians. If a driver is focused on quickly getting through an intersection and puts you in danger or causes injury, we will fight for compensation.
Reckless Driving at Crosswalks
When a driver fails to pay attention to the rules at crosswalks and causes injury, Stracci Law can step in. Compensation is owed to anybody injured by reckless drivers, impaired or otherwise, who do not obey crosswalk rules.
Residential Accidents Involving Children
Drivers are required by law to lower their speed when driving through residential areas to protect children and the elderly who may be crossing the road. Drivers not obeying the proper residential speed limits may be liable for any child pedestrian accident resulting from a child running into the street.
Elderly Pedestrian Accidents
Indiana law states that drivers must give way to blind and elderly pedestrians seen walking with a cane or seeing-eye dog. When they don’t, we’ll pursue those drivers for compensation in the event of an older adult pedestrian accident.
Why Do Pedestrian Accidents Occur in Indiana?
No injury is too small for compensation when a driver breaks the rules and causes you harm. Accidents are, unfortunately, commonplace. Whenever there is a pedestrian hit by a car, the first question is how can justice be served? The team at Stracci Law serves as your advocate, achieving the maximum compensation possible.
Common pedestrian accident injuries include:
- Cuts and bruises
- Sprained ligaments
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries (including paralysis)
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Cuts causing bleeding to the face and hands
In Indiana, a driver who is either distracted or otherwise not following the rules of the road is liable for compensation to pedestrians who are injured by their driving.

While it is uncommon, sometimes people are struck by cars and injured while walking. When a two-ton car strikes a person, even at low speeds, serious and life-altering injuries can occur. If the car is traveling at speeds as low as 15 miles per hour, death is possible.
These accidents are horrific, and the injuries they cause can be catastrophic. And whenever the injuries are this serious, the costs are going to be significant for treatment. The insurance companies don’t like that. They’ll question every visit to physical therapy, every bottle of ibuprofen, and every x-ray so that they don’t have to pay. They want to pay as little as possible, and nothing makes them dig in harder than when their insured strikes a pedestrian. They’ll even go so far as to blame you for not being aware of the car or, incredibly, not “dodging” when a car is barreling down on you.
Make no mistake. The entire automobile insurance agency has an army of people trained to deny your claims. We’ll make sure that the insurance companies will pay every penny you’re entitled to.
