Studies have shown that pedestrian fatalities have risen by 27% within the last decade. Unfortunately, the most common cause for this increase in deaths is negligent behavior on the driver’s behalf. Fortunately for Mason, he survived after being struck by a vehicle on a rainy night.
Because he suffered serious injuries, he will be unable to work this year as Santa Claus. He’s revealed that he’s missing out on a considerable amount of income since he’s already had to cancel 18 events due to his injuries. Mason could file a personal injury lawsuit and receive compensation for his medical expenses and loss of wages.
