Strong Representation For Injured Pedestrians And Their Families
As a pedestrian, you expect drivers to follow the rules of the road and keep a watchful eye out for you. However, the reality is that many drivers don’t respect the right of way the pedestrians have, and many drivers are too distracted to pay as much attention as they should to pedestrians.
Driver carelessness can lead to severe and fatal injuries for pedestrians. At the law offices of Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, our injury attorneys are dedicated to fighting for our clients in a wide range of personal injury cases. We can help you recover the compensation you and your family need.

Driver Negligence In Pedestrian Accidents
The cause of most accidents involving a pedestrian and motor vehicle is the negligence of the driver. This comes in many forms such as:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Running red lights
- Failing to stop at a stop sign
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Not looking for pedestrians in crosswalks
- Distracted driving involving texting and mobile phone use
Compensation For Your Injuries
Whatever the cause of your accident is, our attorneys will investigate your case to determine fault and build the best legal case to recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Common pedestrian accident injuries include:
- Head injuries, which may range from a concussion to traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Broken bones
- Back, neck and shoulder injuries
- Road rash
Any of these injuries can require treatment that results in extensive medical bills, resulting in compensation for you to help deal with the effects of the accident. You may be entitled to receive damages for:
- Medical expenses, both current and future
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Loss of parental or spousal support
- Pain and suffering
- Pedestrian fatalities resulting in wrongful death claims
