According to statistics reported by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, over 100,000 pedestrians are injured during accidents each year in the United States. Statistics also indicate that the leading cause of pedestrian accidents is motor vehicle driver negligence. The truth is, when drivers of automobiles are near pedestrians, they may act recklessly or simply fail to pay attention. When this happens, a serious accident is likely to ensue. Unfortunately, once an accident occurs, the pedestrian is the one who will incur the most devastating injuries. When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle that weighs 3,000 pounds or more, the end result is never good.
If pedestrians survive their accidents, they will most likely have sustained serious injuries that are not only painful, but also difficult to live with. For this reason, injured pedestrians owe it to themselves to speak with qualified personal injury lawyers after their accidents. In some cases, pedestrians may learn that they have a right to file a personal injury claim against the negligent people that caused their accidents. By filing personal injury claims, pedestrians may be able to recover compensation for numerous things, including their medical expenses and pain and suffering. When victims of pedestrian accidents decide to move forward with their personal injury lawsuits, their attorneys can help them navigate through legal complexities and also protect their best interests.
