Common injuries in a pedestrian accident 

The injuries in a pedestrian accident are typically severe for an obvious reason: their lack of protection. Pedestrians are vulnerable, especially when it comes to colliding with a fast-moving vehicle. These collisions could lead to severe and often fatal bodily injuries. Some common injuries include: 

  • Broken bones 
  • Internal bleeding 
  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Neck injuries 
  • Cuts and bruises 
  • Sprains 
  • Road rash 
  • Back injuries 

Any of those injuries could turn your life upside down. Many of them could lead to a dramatic and permanent loss in your quality of life. A pedestrian accident lawyer could assist you in obtaining compensation for your medical treatment.  

Frequent locations for pedestrian accidents 

A pedestrian accident could occur anywhere that a motor vehicle and pedestrian might cross paths. That said, some locations are more likely to result in a pedestrian accident than others. Intersections are by far the most commonplace for these accidents. Intersections are particularly risky when drivers are careless. Many times a motorist will be too busy watching for oncoming traffic to notice the pedestrian cross right in front of their vehicle. When this occurs, a personal injury attorney could help the pedestrian take swift legal action.  

Crosswalks outside of intersections are another common location. In some cases, motorists will fail to yield to a crosswalk, only for a pedestrian to cross in front of the vehicle. Crosswalk accidents can be deadly when a vehicle is moving at high speed.
