Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

One of the leading reasons for personal injury cases are due reckless car drivers. The majority of these accidents could have been prevented, if the driver had not been operating the vehicle irresponsibly. If drivers were more attentive to not only other cars, but people too, then less lives would be impacted by pedestrian accidents. An attorney understands just how much pain and financial turmoil you may be enduring after being struck by a vehicle. Please know that you do not have to accept what has happened to you. They can help you seek financial retribution from the careless driver who hit you.

Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Car drivers can be speedy, may ignore driving laws, and may be so focused on getting where they need to be on-time that they do not watch out for pedestrians nearby. The injuries associated with pedestrian accidents can be agonizing, expensive and even result in conditions that require long-term management. An attorney can offer insight, representation, and guidance as you file a civil lawsuit against the driver at-fault. An attorney firmly believe that you should not have to suffer the consequences of a car driver’s misconduct. Here is an extensive list of injuries a pedestrian may sustain after being struck by a vehicle:

  • Facial wounds
  • Heavy bruises and deep cuts
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Concussion
  • Brain swelling
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Fractured skull
  • Broken bones
  • Fractured pelvis
  • Hip displacement
  • Newly developed anxiety/depression
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Burn injuries
  • Head, neck and shoulder injury
