Pedestrian Accidents in Pennsylvania
Pedestrians are the most at-risk parties on our roads in Pennsylvania. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. In 2020, it was reported that 158 pedestrians were killed as a result of pedestrian accidents within the state. Drivers are supposed to pay close attention to the roads at all times so that pedestrian accidents can be prevented. However, drivers are sometimes engaged in reckless acts and so these accidents still occur within seconds. If you have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident and know that another party is to blame, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
Facing a pedestrian accident can be a difficult thing to do, especially if your pedestrian accident has led to traumatic injuries. Unfortunately, this is often the case in the event of a pedestrian accident. Some of the most severe injuries that stem from pedestrian accidents in Pennsylvania include the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Organ damage
- Broken bones
These injuries sometimes land victims in the hospital and keep them away from daily activities for some time. If you have sustained losses due to a pedestrian accident, you should speak with a dedicated Carlisle personal injury lawyer who has your best interests in mind.
