The Serious Nature of Accidents Involving Pedestrians
Pedestrian accidents can cause serious catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death. All pedestrian accidents are pretty complicated, and this is predominantly because these types of serious injuries can entail many different causes or factors as to how exactly the accident occurred. Drivers of motor vehicles can be held accountable for the accidents that they cause and their negligence in any car crash can be rooted in many factors, such as the following:
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Failure to obey the speed limit or other traffic directives
- Driving drunk or recklessly
- Failure to adjust driving due to weather conditions
- Failure to take special account for the activities of children
- Failure to consider road conditions
- Failure to adjust for driver visibility limitations
- Failure to pay appropriate attention to traffic
Because of the weight and powerful force of all motor vehicles, pedestrians may suffer death or serious catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, fractures, spine injuries, and other serious injuries requiring extensive medical care.
