If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident and need a lawyer...turn to Kimmel Carter.
Countless pedestrian are injured or killed every year. Pedestrian accidents can occur because of defects in sidewalks or parking lots, poor walkway maintenance, or construction site hazards. The most serious pedestrian injuries, however, are commonly caused by negligent motorists.
Pedestrians are often unnoticed by careless, inattentive drivers. Child pedestrians are at greatest risk of auto-related accidents due to the unpredictability of their actions. Motorists do not always use the appropriate degree of caution when driving near schools or through residential neighborhoods. A small child who darts into the road or is hidden by roadside objects can be struck by a negligent driver and seriously injured.
When a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, the resultant injuries can be quite grave. Pedestrians obviously lack the protections enjoyed by a motorist, such as air bags, seat belts, and the vehicle itself. Potential pedestrian injuries range from scrapes and bruises, to broken and dislocated bones, to brain injury, to death.
