Pedestrian Accidents

Drivers know that pedestrians in a marked or unmarked crosswalk have the right of way and drivers must yield to them. Even so, pedestrians are regularly hit by vehicles because the driver just didn’t see them. There could be any number of reasons for this – the sun could be in the driver’s eyes, it could be raining hard, it could be dark out or the driver was simply distracted.

When a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle, they can suffer serious injuries. Brain injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, broken bones, and internal injuries are common. Often the pedestrian hits the vehicle and is then thrown, landing hard on the pavement. The injuries sustained can be such that the pedestrian has no recollection of the accident.
