Pedestrian Accidents in California
Thousands of pedestrians continue to have their lives completely torn apart as a result of automobile accidents in California every year. Unfortunately, we see many people who are left with serious injuries due to the negligent and careless actions of others. Common injuries that victims of these accidents suffer from include:
- Compound fractures: Fractured bones can cause excruciating amounts of pain. Unfortunately, patients who suffer from these injuries frequently require surgery and are required to wear casts for many months. After being involved in an accident, some victims may be required to go through rehabilitation or treatment in order to recover fully.
- Spinal cord injuries: these injuries can result in paralysis. Depending on the type and location of the injury, victims may be left permanently disabled. In cases where paralysis is not permanent, victims will have to go through months of therapy, rehabilitation, and other forms of treatment.
- The loss of limbs: losing a limb as a result of an automobile accident can have a devastating impact on your life. The loss of an arm or leg can completely prevent you from being able to work in performing various other actions.
Regrettably, victims are often left with these and other serious injuries as a result of automobile accidents that are caused by drivers who are negligent. When drivers fail to yield to pedestrians, speed, or engage in other actions that directly cause them harm, they can have severe consequences for innocent people. When pedestrians are injured in car crashes, it is crucial that they understand the legal options that they have.
