Common Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents

Because pedestrians don’t have any protection when hit by a motor vehicle, they often suffer catastrophic, life-altering injuries — even when the collision occurs at a low speed. Some of the most common injuries associated with pedestrian accidents include:

  • Lacerations and abrasions, including “road rash”
  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendon and muscle strains
  • Soft tissue tears
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated spinal discs
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Crush injuries
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Facial injuries and scarring
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)

Hit by a Car While Walking in Wichita? Here Are Your Legal Options

If you were injured in a pedestrian accident in Wichita, you may have several options for seeking compensation for your resulting expenses and losses. These options may include the following:

  • Filing a personal injury protection (PIP) claim– If you have an auto insurance policy, you can file a claim with your insurer for compensation for certain expenses and losses. All car insurance policies in Kansas are required to include PIP coverage. A PIP claim pays for the policyholder’s medical treatment, lost wages, and certain household services. PIP is considered a “no-fault” coverage because your insurer will pay your PIP claim regardless of who caused the pedestrian accident.
  • Using your health insurance– You could also get your medical expenses covered by your health insurance provider. However, your insurer might not provide coverage for injuries suffered in a motor vehicle-related accident or if you have remaining PIP coverage from your car insurance.
  • Pursuing a claim against the at-fault driver and their insurer – You may have the right to file a compensation claim against the driver who hit you. In most cases, compensation will be paid by the at-fault driver’s auto insurance provider.
  • Filing an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim – If the driver did not have enough insurance to cover your losses or fled the scene to avoid taking responsibility, you could file an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim with your own auto insurance policy.
