North Carolina Pedestrian Accidents
According to statistics, there are about 2,000 reported crashes involving pedestrians every year across our state. About 80 to 85% of these accidents will also result in injuries to the affected pedestrian. It is difficult for pedestrians to avoid an injury when they are involved in a crash. North Carolina pedestrian accidents often occur very suddenly and without warning. They leave the injured pedestrian with little time to react to avoid the crash. Further, the pedestrian has no protection from the impact of the accident, which takes place with great force.
The injuries in pedestrian crashes tend to be serious in nature and include broken bones, head trauma, scars, disfigurement, and even death. The serious injuries suffered by victims can require costly and extensive medical treatment and can be of a life-altering nature. Each pedestrian accident must be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine the cause and who should be held responsible. In the aftermath of a North Carolina pedestrian crash, it is vital to contact an experienced lawyer who can help protect your rights to compensation.
