Pedestrians are completely vulnerable and unprotected on the roadway. Therefore, they suffer a vastly disproportionate amount of severe injuries and wrongful deaths when accidents involving motor vehicles occur. If a pedestrian survives a collision, they will likely have serious injuries, which can include:
- Traumatic Brain injuries
- Internal Organ Injuries
- Serious Joint injuries
Even less severe injuries can leave behind emotional scarring and post-traumatic stress symptoms. All too often, drivers are inattentive to the presence of pedestrians and don’t sufficiently look in the direction their car is traveling. Pedestrian accidents raise unique issues and may involve different situations, which include:
- pedestrians or joggers being struck in a crosswalk
- pedestrians or joggers being sideswiped by a motor vehicle
- being hit while in a parking lot
- being struck while exiting a bus or car
