Los Angeles Lawyers for Pedestrian Accident Injury Claims
On average, a pedestrian is injured in a traffic accident every eight minutes. In 2010, an estimated 70,000 pedestrians were hurt or injured in accidents involving cars, trucks, and other vehicles. In 2011, approximately 11,000 children were hurt in pedestrian accidents. 16 percent of traffic fatalities involve people (including pedestrians) 65 and older.
Clearly, some drivers are not cautious about sharing the road with pedestrians. When a motorist is at fault for a pedestrian accident, he or she may be subject to criminal penalties as well as civil lawsuits.
Pedestrian accidents can result in serious injuries, including:
- Broken bones,
- Head and neck injuries,
- Back injuries, and
Pedestrian accidents have other long-term consequences, including missed work and reduced earning capacity. Following a pedestrian accident, many people find themselves unable to work or provide for their families. Recovering from a pedestrian accident may require extensive and costly medical care, such as surgery or physical therapy.
