Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio

According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, 717 pedestrians were killed in accidents from 2013 to 2018. In 2018 alone, approximately 2,600 pedestrians suffered injuries in crashes. These injuries are often severe and disabling due to the lack of protection pedestrians have against motor vehicles. Common injuries include broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and more. The medical costs associated with these injuries are often exorbitant.

Victims injured by negligent motorists often need compensation to help pay for lost wages, medical bills, disability-related expenses, and more. Rourke & Blumenthal is dedicated to helping our clients receive the maximum compensation to which they are entitled. Pedestrians are frequently injured in accidents caused by:

  • Fatigued drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Drivers who exceed the speed limit
  • Motorists who ignore red lights or stop signs
  • Motorists under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car Pedestrian Accident?

While pedestrians do have the right of way on the road, it doesn’t mean that the driver of a motor vehicle is always at fault in the event of an accident. Some of the most common situations where a pedestrian may be found at fault are:

  • A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
  • A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
  • A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed

    "You NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases."
    Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.

    "Attorney Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with."
    Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.

    "Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly"
    From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.

    "I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority."
    Mr Timothy Mahler represented me after a personal injury auto accident. He was professional, knowledgeable, empathetic and experienced. I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority. I was relieved from the intricate and time-consuming tasks related to the accident, free to focus on healing and recovery. He managed the complicated insurance and settlement to the best outcome. His team always treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Mr Mahler and his team. Thank you.

    "I will forever be grateful for their help!"
    I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!

    Our family is so grateful to have Rob Miller represent my daughter’s personal injury case. He is extremely knowledgeable about Ohio Law and was very patient with my numerous questions.
