No. Pedestrian accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries. Broken bones, head and back injuries and even death can result. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents can happen at any time. An individual does not have to be walking across a pedestrian crosswalk to be injured. Injuries can also occur while a person changes the tire on a car, or unloads items from a truck or trailer. After you have secured the medical attention you need, you should contact and attorney to help you bring a claim and be compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages and the pain and suffering you endured due to another person’s negligence.
