It’s easy to imagine that the damage to a pedestrian struck by a auto-vehicle can be devastating. When the negligence of drivers causes severe injuries to a pedestrian, they may be liable for the resulting medical costs and other damages.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,743 pedestrians were killed in 2012 in traffic accidents. Even a slowly travelling vehicle can easily inflict a fatal injury upon a pedestrian or bicyclist.
Children are particularly at risk of injuries inflicted by vehicles, as they are generally less wary of traffic than adults, and may be harder for drivers to see. A child being struck and killed by a vehicle is an unthinkable tragedy, but it happens all too frequently when drivers do not observe due diligence.
Injuries such as these can lead to staggering financial burdens for necessary medical treatment. Auto pedestrian accident victims and their families can easily rack up thousands in the cost of hospital visits, medications, physical rehabilitation, and special medical equipment such as crutches and wheelchairs. If the victim was struck through the negligence of a driver, they may be able to recover these costs.
