Pedestrian-automobile accidents are all too common. Distracted driving or flagrant disregard for the rules of the road and pedestrian right-of-way is often to blame in these cases. But no matter what the reasons behind the accident, the outcomes are serious for the pedestrian.
Injuries range from scrapes and bruises to broken bones, internal injuries, head trauma, and even death. The least serious of injuries can mean days off work while the most serious can be life-changing and bring financial ruin to the pedestrian.
