Were you injured in a motor vehicle accident? There are several different kinds of auto accident injury claims that we deal with here at the firm. If your accident involved other motor vehicles such as a car, truck, motorcycle or bus then it would be considered an auto accident. However, if you were walking across the crosswalk or was a bystander on the street at the time of the accident then it categorized as a pedestrian accident.
When motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian, then the chances of the pedestrian sustaining catastrophic or even fatal injuries is much higher. Pedestrians are not protected by a box of metal that contains a seat belt and an air bag; they are fully vulnerable to the surrounding elements. Countless of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured each year after being hit by a motor vehicle and the unfortunate truth is that the majority of these accidents are preventable. Many pedestrian accidents are caused by driver negligence because they were simply not looking or aware that the pedestrian was there.
