Car accidents involving pedestrians typically result in the most serious injuries when it comes to accidents involving motor vehicles. Because of the nature of these accidents, pedestrians can be left dealing with devastating injuries which can potentially lead to long-term and even life-long impairments and disabilities.
Injuries such as sprains, strains, bruises, fractures, traumatic brain injuries and injuries of the spinal cord are some of the most common injuries sustained by pedestrians. When these injuries are combined with lost wages and other expenses, the victim and their family can quickly become overwhelmed emotionally and financially by the consequences of the accident.
The law that governs pedestrian accidents is the same as the one governing other motor vehicle accident claims but with one major difference which is actually beneficial for the pedestrian. It is the at-fault party that bears the responsibility of proving their innocence as opposed to the victim having to prove that they are right. This typically translates into higher compensation settlements for victims of pedestrian accidents however it is crucial to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in order to ensure that the victim receives all of the compensation and medical treatment that they’re entitled to.
