The dangers that pedestrians face

The roads can be a dangerous place for anyone. Pedestrians, however, tend to face the largest risks due to the fact that they are left without as much protection as most motorists. This can lead to a number of increased problems that you may face near the roads.

There are a number of places in which you may end up in a pedestrian accident, or in which you may have already gotten into an accident at. There are some freak accidents in which a driver may end up driving onto a sidewalk. More commonly, a driver may end up taking a turn without realizing that a pedestrian is crossing in front of them. Crosswalks are also a place where a large number of accidents involving pedestrians can occur.  Because of the nature of these accidents, it is usually possible for you to file a personal injury claim.

It has been stated that for every 6 fatal motor accidents, at least 1 involves a pedestrian. This is due to the fact that pedestrians do not have the protection that a car gives a driver. The injuries that they face can therefore be much more debilitating. Common injuries that you may be dealing with after an accident can include damage to the brain or spinal column, as well as broken or displaced bones. This is also why personal injury claims may be useful, as the money garnered through them can help you afford any home modifications or physical therapy that might be necessary.
