There are many unfortunate reasons why a pedestrian may be struck by a motor vehicle including drunk and distracted driving, text messaging, road debris, inexperienced drivers, poor weather conditions, and defective road design to name a few. The consequences can range from soft tissue injuries to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Even in relatively minor collisions, it is common for accident victims to suffer from skin abrasions, whip lash, back strain, neck pain, emotional distress and broken bones due to factors such as rapidly decreasing speed, impact, and flying objects. Whether your condition is temporary or permanent, you can suffer significant consequences, such as inability to work, physical and emotional pain, and economic losses.
