At The Law Offices of Zappettini and Bradley, our priority is helping victims of pedestrian accidents recover the maximum amount of damages for wrongful deaths or injuries inflicted during the incident.
Pedestrian accidents often injure those who are most vulnerable — children walking to and from school, or elderly persons trying to cross busy streets. Another common type of pedestrian accident occurs when a car hits a pedestrian in the crosswalk because the driver is looking at traffic, and not at the pedestrian.
The severity of pedestrian injuries can vary, depending of the speed the vehicle was traveling when it struck the pedestrian. Lower extremity and leg injuries are very common, and can range from torn cartilage and tendons to broken bones (fractures of the kneecap (patella), tibia and fibula of the lower leg, and femur in the upper leg). If the pedestrian is thrown into the air, injuries can include brain damage, herniated discs, internal injuries to the kidney, liver, or spleen, spinal injury, and rib fractures.
Typically, accidents involving pedestrians are serious. As a result, it’s extremely important to get the full financial compensation you deserve, so that the injured party is able to receive the medical care and rehabilitation services they will need.
