Experienced Pedestrian Accident Attorney
As cities around the country continue to grow, Pedestrians, including walkers, runners, workers, and cyclists are more and more common on our roadways. That’s why knowing where to find the most experienced pedestrian accident attorney can be crucial.
Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee, with its increasing number of citizens sees many pedestrian accidents each year. Often, cyclists and pedestrians become personal injury victims, not by their own fault, but by the fault of a negligent or distracted driver and pedestrian accidents often result in serious injuries to the pedestrian, with little damage to the truck or car that hits them. These victims can suffer traumatic head injuries, neck and back injuries, broken arms or legs, torn rotator cuff, spinal cord injury, or even premature death. These injuries will usually require the immediate attention of medical specialists, such as an orthopedic doctor, neurologist, surgeon, internal medicine doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist, in order to treat these injuries.
Of all automobile accidents, pedestrian accidents involving a car tend to be the most difficult, as the pedestrian simply has no chance of avoiding injuries caused by on oncoming car. These types of traffic accidents commonly cause severe injury, nerve damage, or paralysis. Loss of the use of limbs, fractures, burns and scars, and permanent injuries often occur in these types of accidents and require emergency medical personnel to treat the injured victim at the scene of the accident. They do not have a seatbelt, an airbag, a protective metal shell, or even a helmet. They are directly exposed to the impact of the car, the street, and any other objects or hazards, as well as any scrapes or cuts caused by the road or other items. Pedestrian accidents are dangerous and often fatal.
