Dallas Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Dallas is home to some of the most dangerous drivers in America for pedestrians. Hundreds of people are killed walking on Dallas roads every year, and many more are injured. If you were hurt by a driver while walking in your neighborhood, a Dallas pedestrian accident attorney at Loncar Lyon Jenkins might be able to help you pursue an insurance payout or a jury verdict in a civil trial. Either of these options could allow you to recover compensation for the damages you suffered, including injuries, medical bills, lost income, and more.

Facts About Auto-Pedestrian Accidents in Dallas

In Dallas, 39% of pedestrian-vehicle accidents are fatal and most often occur while someone is crossing a busy street, per this Texas A&M Transportation Institute study.

Just over a thousand pedestrian accidents occurred in 2016 in Dallas, and just under a thousand were registered the year after. The 267 pedestrian collisions per 100,000 residents places Dallas in the top five most dangerous counties in America for pedestrians. But unfortunately, countless other pedestrian incidents go unreported.

Pedestrians are especially vulnerable on the road and are at a grossly disproportionate disadvantage in any kind of vehicle strike. Anyone who has driven here knows that Dallas is a highway city.

If you were intentionally hit by an aggressive, belligerent, drunk, or angry driver, the law provides an avenue for extra damages called “punitive damages.” These are intended to send a message to other potential perpetrators. A member of our legal team can explain more about what kinds of damages your case may entitle you to seek. Contact our office today to learn more.

Pursuing Compensation in Pedestrian Accidents

The legal system in Texas is built to provide a legal foundation for injured people to sue someone who hurt them. Whether through a willful act or their negligence to exercise due caution on the road, pedestrians sometimes, but not always, have a valid legal case to be made.

Dallas pedestrian laws can get complicated, and it can be challenging to prove whether a light was green or red at any given second. In these cases, courts more often judge who had the right of way at the intersection and whether a reasonable driver would have seen you and avoided the collision.

There are many types of pedestrian accidents, and they may result in legal damages for:

  • Doctor bills
  • Medical equipment costs
  • Prescription receipts
  • Physical therapy invoices

Punitive damages if the driver was intoxicated or intentionally hit you
In addition, our clients often have additional bills and losses related to their accidents and injuries. For example, missing work could lead to lost wages and benefits. You may have other types of lost income, such as tips or commissions. If injuries are serious, you might not be able to return to your previous job or career and experience diminished earning ability.

Then, there is the matter of property damages. If you had a laptop in your backpack, eyeglasses, a smartphone, or other expensive belongings when the crash occurred, you might need to replace them. These are also recoverable damages.

Lastly, there are the non-economic damages you suffered. These are, by nature, intangible. There is no monetary value assigned to them, although our team will calculate their value based on our experience with other cases. The non-economic damages in a case can often be several times as large as the financial expenses and losses.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Dallas?

Our pedestrian accident attorneys work based on contingency. We have a contingency fee policy, which means we do not charge our clients upfront for anything. We do not rely on retainers or hourly fees. Instead, we use our firm’s resources to pay costs, investigate and build the case, and cover any necessary fees.

Then, we charge attorney’s fees as a portion of the payout we recover for the client, whether from a settlement or verdict. Again, this is a pre-agreed percentage that we can discuss with you during your free case review.

What Are Common Types Of Injuries Sustained in Pedestrian Accidents?

Pedestrians injured by negligent drivers can suffer the following types of injuries:

  • Concussions
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Bone breaks and joint sprains
  • Lesiones cerebrales traumáticas
  • Daños en la médula espinal
  • Chronic pain
  • Lesiones cervicales
  • Back injuries
  • Salpicaduras
  • Burns or lacerations
  • Blunt force trauma injuries
  • Internal organ injuries

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our goal is to restore you as much as possible to the lifestyle you had before your accident. This primarily means financial compensation, but we also check in with your medical team to ensure that everything is being done for your recovery.

What is the Statute Of Limitations for Pedestrian Accidents in Texas?

We fight for the rights of injured pedestrians in Texas. A member of our legal team can assist you in acting today to start pursuing your personal injury claim while you recover from your injuries. We may not file your claim until your injuries are healed, or we understand your ongoing and future care needs, but we can start the investigation and develop the claim right away.

This is important because there are strict deadlines for lawsuits in Texas. There are several reasons for swift action to be taken after a pedestrian accident. While there are compelling reasons to act now, per Texas Transportation Code §16.003(a), which stipulates that personal injury claims in Texas must be filed within two years from the date of injury.

Many people think this means a few months or a year could go by as they consider their legal options but waiting may affect your personal injury case. Memories fade, and important pieces of information can be forgotten in that time.

If you or a loved one was injured after a pedestrian accident, you might need assistance from a pedestrian accident attorney from our law firm. These claims are difficult to prove and often involve complex information, so having a lawyer familiar with these types of cases can be very helpful. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can get started building your case. We encourage you to put your health first and let us take care of the rest.
