Our pedestrian accident attorneys want to urge you to be aware of your surroundings when you are walking down the street. In particular, you should be careful when crossing an intersection. There is so much traffic whizzing by at high speeds that the unexpected tends to happen too often. Pedestrian accidents cause the injuries and wrongful death of thousands of people every year because of unexplained or unexpected problems with cars or if a car accident causes one or more cars to spin out of control. In this case, the man hit by a car could have suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Investigators looking into the pedestrian accident determined that the pedestrian was at fault and the driver will not face any charges.
Pedestrian accidents like these are just an example of how you never know what could happen at any given time walking down the street. If you do get hit by a car, your injuries could be catastrophic, and major injuries require a lot of medical treatment. Then you will likely need help to pay back your medical bills. That’s a lot of trouble that you don’t want.
So remember that our pedestrian accident lawyers want you to be careful when you’re traveling the first things given to you … your legs.
