CAR V. PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT
Every day, more than 11 pedestrians nationwide lose their lives because of accidents involving motor vehicles. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that 12 percent of the deaths that occur in crashes on U.S. roads involve pedestrian/vehicle accidents. Most of those happen in urban areas where there is likely to be more foot traffic competing with motor vehicle traffic. When you or someone you love has been struck by a car, truck, or other vehicle, and left seriously injured, you may be entitled to receive compensation from the driver who hurt you.

When it comes to injuries, cars and trucks can inflict catastrophic damage on the human body. Pedestrians have no protection against vehicles and are easily wounded when they collide with windshields, bumpers and other unyielding vehicle surfaces. Multiple broken bones, internal organ injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and mobility-affecting damage to the spinal cord can change pedestrians’ lives in the space of a few seconds.
Crosswalks, sidewalks, and medians are frequent sites of pedestrian v. motor vehicle accidents. Many involve older individuals, and more males than females lose their lives as pedestrians.
