Pedestrian accidents are known for being incredibly severe due to the fact that they involve some of the most at-risk parties on our roads. Pedestrians are incredibly vulnerable to serious injuries, which means that they are most likely to spend time in the hospital and away from work after an accident that is not their fault. In one recent year, it was estimated that over 102 pedestrians were killed in these horrific accidents due to the negligence of others. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, it is imperative that you seek the immediate help of an accident attorney.
