Pedestrian accidents almost always leave pedestrians suffering some type of injury, whether it be severe, catastrophic, or fatal. The reason being is due to pedestrians’ inability to protect their bodies from the impact from other vehicles. No gear is available for pedestrians to wear to ensure that they won’t suffer injuries. Depending on the severity of the injuries, injured victims could be unable to return to work or partake in normal daily activities. Because the man suffered injuries in this accident, he can file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a personal injury lawyer.
