Pedestrian accident death and injuries have become more common due to the increase in traffic and population, and illegal use of motorized scooters on the sidewalk. It is tragic that someone walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street, through no fault of their own, can be involved in an accident with a vehicle, scooter, or motorcycle which can cause serious injuries that can affect them for life.
Traumatic and serious injuries are common to pedestrian accidents. Your pedestrian accident attorney must be prepared to make proper and necessary referrals to medical care professionals. Many victims of pedestrian accidents ask their personal injury lawyers for referrals for job retraining if they have become disabled and no longer able to commit themselves to the career they had before their injury.
Statistics show that a pedestrian is killed in a traffic crash every 113 minutes, i.e. pedestrian wrongful death. That means that over 4000 pedestrians are killed each year. These statistics are even worse when non-fatal but serious injuries occur to a pedestrian. Even when a pedestrian is acting responsibly and obeying the traffic rules they can still be injured by a negligent driver or an operator of an electric scooter illegally riding on the sidewalk.
