Pedestrians Have To Watch Out For Negligent Motorists
We all know how common it is to see drivers not paying attention these days because they are on their phone, changing the music, eating, texting or just plain old not paying attention to the road and their surroundings. Most drivers are looking for other cars on the road and don’t check sidewalks and crosswalks very well which can end up causing a lot of harm to the pedestrian if they get hit.
Even being hit by a vehicle at a slow speed can end up causing serious injuries with high medical expenses such as whiplash, neck, back and spinal cord injuries and possibly even broken bones or internal bleeding. These injuries should not be taken lightly and if the accident was the fault of the driver, then you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault parties. Don’t just blindly accept any settlement the insurance company sends you, let our pedestrian accident lawyers look over your case to ensure you are being fairly compensated for your injury.
