Because our streets are crowded and pedestrians have to share the road with moving motor vehicles, there are a number of tragic pedestrian accidents that take place. Pedestrian accidents nationwide kill and injure thousands of people every year.
Some of the common reasons why pedestrians suffer serious injuries are that drivers of vehicles fail to see a pedestrian, fail to yield the right of way to a pedestrian, fail to stop at a stop sign or traffic light, are distracted behind the wheel, or don’t understand the rules of the road.
Serious Roswell pedestrian accidents don’t just cause a victim temporary pain, but can lead to other serious issues such as:
- Life-long injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Additional expenses
- Lost income
If you or someone you love has been injured in a Roswell pedestrian accident, or a family member has suffered a wrongful death by a negligent driver, this can cause a terrible hardship on a family. Injuries such as paralysis, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and more can lead to expensive medical bills, lost income from time off of work, and require life adjustments.
