When a car hits a pedestrian, serious injuries can occur that may result in debilitating, lifelong physical damage. Although some injuries may not last a lifetime, they may still cause pedestrians a great deal of pain, inconvenience, and financial damages. These injuries can include:

  • Broken wrist
  • Broken arm
  • Broken ankle
  • Broken leg
  • Broken femur
  • Other fractures or broken bones

When people fall, it is common for them to stretch out their hands to help break their fall. When this happens in a Peachtree City pedestrian accident and body weight falls onto their outstretched hand, a broken wrist or arm can occur. While this injury may not be the most severe, it can still be painful, require surgery, physical therapy, and doctor’s visits. In addition, fractures can cause people to miss time from work and lose out on income on which they are depending. Plus, expensive medical bills often accompany pedestrian injuries for:

  • x-rays
  • orthopedic doctor visits
  • casting the broken bone
  • surgery to correct the deformity and improve the alignment
  • physical therapy
  • ongoing tests and follow-up visits

Injured pedestrians need to learn how to deal with the financial damages of their injuries by pursuing a personal injury claim to recover for the above expenses. A skilled Peachtree City pedestrian injury lawyer can help you make a sizeable financial recovery. Please call the Law Offices of Shane Smith at 770-HURT-999 to start your financial recovery today.
