In the United States, driving is a privilege, not a right. Drivers must obey the law and use caution while operating their vehicle, which includes observing pedestrians and people riding bicycles. Injuries sustained by pedestrians may be very serious and might include permanent physical injuries. Some injuries that may result from a pedestrian accident are:
- Brain injury
- Bone fractures
Following a pedestrian accident, you should contact an aggressive pedestrian accident injury lawyer to begin the legal process. When drivers injure pedestrians or bicyclists they must be punished and should have to compensate the victim for all accident-related costs. Medical costs relating to a pedestrian accident can be very expensive and include hospital bills, loss of wages, and visits to medical specialists.

More than 1 in 10 deaths caused by automobiles are pedestrians.
Many of you may not know but a study released in 2003 concluded that pedestrians make up almost 11% of all deaths caused by automobiles. A pedestrian has to be extra careful. Often times drivers are inattentive, such as putting on their makeup, talking on cell phones, etc. Pedestrians should wear bright clothes at night as drivers cannot see them crossing the street in the dark if they’re wearing dark clothes. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents usually have a great potential to be dangerous and pedestrians end up with severe injuries including broken bones and fractures involving surgeries, etc.
