Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Every year in Texas and throughout the United Stated hundreds of pedestrians are killed or injured by people operating motor vehicles. In 2012 alone, 4.743 pedestrians died in the United States as the result of a traffic incident involving either a car, truck, or motorcycle. A pedestrian is defined by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSA) as any person on foot, walking, running, jogging, hiking, sitting or lying down who is involved in a motor vehicle crash. It should also be noted that a traffic crash is defined as an incident involving one or more vehicles where at least one vehicle is moving and the accident takes place on a public road. At Rad Law Firm, our knowledgeable Houston attorneys represent clients who have sustained personal injuries from pedestrian accidents, as well as people who may have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident as a result of the reckless or negligent conduct of another person.
Common Vehicle-Pedestrian Injuries
Injuries suffered as a result of these types of traffic accidents can be severe and life altering. You may have injuries to your head or neck, nerve damage or spinal cord paralysis, broken or dislocated a bone or limb, lost the use of a limb, or even lost an entire limb. Unfortunately, a wide majority of accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles result in serious and even catastrophic injury. This is in large part the case because pedestrians lack protection and gear to protect them from the impact of a car, truck, motorcycle, or even bicycle. Some of the most common types of injuries that a pedestrian may be left with after being struck by a vehicle include broken bones, traumatic brain injury, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, and road rash.
