Types of Pedestrian Accident Injuries | Common Examples
Common pedestrian accident injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal organ damage
If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you can file for wrongful death to get compensation because that person no longer can provide for your family both financially and emotionally. Because of this loss, you are missing out on the love and support you would have gotten had that person survived.
Types of Pedestrian Accident Injuries | Injured Tourists
In Ventura, because we are a beautiful beach town in Southern California, we see a lot of tourists who walk around the city taking in the nice weather and scenery, or rely on walking as their way around. Most of the pedestrian accidents surprisingly happen in marked crosswalks where tourists are meant to be walking rather than the J walkers around town. Tourists who are injured in a pedestrian accident can call on a Ventura pedestrian accident lawyer to represent them and get the compensation that they deserve.
The insurance lawyers will try to tell you that you were a distracted tourist, you didn’t pay attention to the road because you’re unfamiliar with the area and that’s why you got hit. They will try everything to get this accident out of their hands. They don’t want to pay you for your injuries that have potentially changed your body forever. They want to blame this all on your inability to look both ways before crossing the street, even if the driver didn’t check for you before zipping around the corner.
