No one expects to be involved in an accident. It can be even more shocking and unexpected when an individual suffers severe injuries in a wreck caused by a negligent or reckless driver. In a car accident, victims can suffer serious and traumatic injuries, but the severity of these injuries can increase exponentially in an accident involving a pedestrian and a motor vehicle. Although motorists are taught to drive safely around pedestrians, and rules and regulations have been passed to reduce these collisions, this does not always prevent pedestrian accidents.
A person is unable to stand up to the size and speed of a vehicle. Even in a slow moving crash, a pedestrian can suffer life-altering and debilitating injuries. At the Law offices of James L.
