Pedestrian Accidents All-Too Common
Pedestrian accidents are an all-too-common occurrence in California where the weather is warm and sunny and people spend more time outdoors throughout the year. Unfortunately, pedestrians are particularly vulnerable if a car veers off the road or a driver is not paying attention. Some of the more common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Drunk drivers
- Slips and falls
- Distracted drivers
- Improperly maintained sidewalks
- Aggressive cyclists
Sadly, a large number of pedestrian accidents lead to serious injuries for victims.
Serious Injuries for Pedestrians
Without any form of protection, pedestrians often suffer serious and catastrophic injuries when an accident occurs. These serious injuries may include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Injury to the spinal cord
- Other head injuries, such as a severe concussion
- Multiple broken bones
These types of injuries may require long-term care and rehabilitation for the victim, which can leave them unable to work and struggling to pay large medical bills. In very tragic instances, the victim may even pass away from their injuries.
