The Lasting Ramifications Of Pedestrian Accidents

Getting hit by a car is a horrifying ideal. Even if you don't remember the accident, you still may have ongoing pain and suffering on both physical and emotional levels.

It's equally horrifying for loved ones. Whether or not you witnessed the accident itself, it's incredibly difficult to watch a family member suffer.

These accidents make it vividly clear just how fragile life is — and how one person's actions can so profoundly impact the lives of others.

Getting To The Bottom Of What Happened

When pedestrians get struck by cars, it's almost always because the driver was negligent in some way. For example, it may come to light that the driver was:

  • Not paying attention
  • Texting while driving, using a cellphone or engaging in other distractions
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

These accidents can happen anywhere — in crosswalks, parking lots, school zones, rural areas, residential streets and crowded intersections. Most often, they happen after dark.

Sadly, many of the victims in these accidents are children, the elderly and those with disabilities — in other words, people who are already vulnerable.
