Pedestrians face very serious risk of injury from motor vehicles. When a motor vehicle strikes a pedestrian, that person has nothing protecting him or her from a significant impact. A typical car weighs more than 4,000 pounds. That much weight traveling at even slower speeds such as 5 miles per hour can do massive damage to a pedestrian, let alone at higher speeds.
Common situations where a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle include:
- Parking lots
- Walking along a shoulder
An impact between a car or truck and a person walking on the street can cause catastrophic injuries and death. Small children are oftentimes the victims of pedestrian accidents, since they are smaller and harder to see, and because they may not appreciate the dangers associated with walking around vehicles. Some of the common injuries associated with pedestrian accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones/fractures
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee injuries
If you or your child has been seriously injured by a motorist while walking, your rights and your futures will be best protected by securing the representation of an attorney with the skill and experience necessary to truly help you in these types of cases.
