Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents
There are many different types of driver error which could result in a pedestrian accident. For example, a driver may lose control over his or her vehicle and subsequently travel onto the sidewalk or into another space designated for pedestrians. Other instances include failure to stop at a stop sign or traffic light, or turning right without checking for pedestrians. If a driver strikes a pedestrian, the victim is highly susceptible to the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Severe lacerations
- Head trauma
The medical treatments which are required to address these concerns are likely to be very expensive. These treatments may include anything from invasive surgeries to long-term physical therapy. Moreover, a pedestrian may be unable to work and thereby earn income while recovering from his or her injuries. For these and many other reasons, it may be appropriate to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.
If you have been struck by an automobile, you may be due financial compensation for your lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, and other associated damages.
