Although traffic laws offer protection to pedestrians, many drivers fail to use caution when driving near them or are oblivious to their presence. When individuals are struck by a negligent or distracted driver, they may sustain personal injuries or even fatalities in the pedestrian accident. Catastrophic injuries, like trauma to the brain or spinal cord, are also possibilities in this type of accident.
If you or someone you love sustained personal injuries in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
