Today more than ever, pedestrians are among the highest at risk of being seriously injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle. While it may be true that measures like cross walks and sidewalks contribute to pedestrian safety from motor vehicles, accidents involving pedestrians and cars, trucks and motorcycles occur regularly. When a person is hit by a car and the driver is found to be at fault as a result of negligence, the victim may be entitled to receive financial compensation. No matter the severity of your injuries, it is critical that you speak with a skilled Miami personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you wish to seek the compensation you are entitled to.
Common Injuries Sustained by Pedestrians
Pedestrians are generally not equipped to protect themselves in an accident with a car, truck or motorcycle, and the resulting injuries can be severe. Many pedestrian accident victims receive medical attention for the following:
- Broken bones;
- Head and brain injuries;
- Lacerations and contusions; and
- Internal injuries leading to organ failure.
The minimum recovery time for any serious personal injury may require a stay in the hospital, and the hardship associated with treatment and recovery costs could soar even higher. In many cases, these injuries can also have a negative impact in terms of the ability to make a living, and increased debt due to large medical costs could lead to bankruptcy and lifelong financial hardship.
