Pedestrian Accidents in the Texas Panhandle

Amarillo Area and Pampa Injury Attorneys

Being involved in any type of accident can be devastatingly life changing for the individuals involved and their family. Due to the fact that pedestrians do not have any type of protection around them when they are struck by a moving vehicle or bicycle. The individuals in the car or truck that may have hit you were probably unharmed, with seatbelts, airbags and a metal framing surrounding them, but you probably were not as lucky. On a daily basis, pedestrians are injured by others when crossing in a crosswalk, walking in a non-crosswalk area and even on the sidewalk. When a negligent driver drives his or vehicle off the road or breaks a traffic law and strikes you as you are walking, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

No matter how vigilant a pedestrian may be, they can still suffer extensive and life-altering injuries at the hands of a careless or reckless motorist. A driver who chooses to focus on something either than the task of operating their vehicle safely, they are far more likely to miss stop signs, traffic lights, a pedestrian crossing the street, or a child that has wandered into the road. Some of the distractions that can result in a driver striking a pedestrian with their vehicle include:

  • Reading or writing a text message
  • Talking on the phone
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Reading a map or using a GPS
  • Eating or drinking
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Speaking with passengers
