Pedestrian Accidents Cause Serious and Lasting Injuries
Pedestrians do not have the protections that drivers have. This vulnerability often leads to disastrous outcomes for innocent commuters. As a result of pedestrian accidents, lasting and debilitating injuries can occur, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Bone fractures
- Torn ligaments
Many of these injuries can have catastrophic effects on victims and their loved ones. Serious physical damage can require ongoing medical care, alterations of your home and lifestyle, and sacrifices from family members for support. In tragic cases, victims may even pass away as a result of their injuries. Financial restitution can help you and your loved ones face these economic changes and better prepare for the future.
