Reckless drivers are not just a threat to
other drivers - they also pose a threat to pedestrians. If you or a loved one
are struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian, the experience can be terrifying and because of the speed and weight of even the smallest
vehicles, the result of that crash can leave you or a family member dealing
with significant and devastating injuries as well as financial burdens.
The impact sustained when a pedestrian is
struck by a vehicle often results in life threatening, serious injuries that
include broken bones, spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries as well as
The consequence of such force against the unprotected human
body frequently begins the family’s worst nightmare of their loved one being
transported by an ambulance to the emergency room, wheeled into surgery, a
post-surgery hospital stay as well as
rehabilitation in a rehab facility - and
all this care costs many thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages -
all incurred while that pedestrian is out of work trying to recuperate, with
their family dealing with the physical aspects and limitations of the injuries
and the financial impact to the family as well.
For some, the need for extended long term care
resulting in months or years of being unable to work, is a reality most
families are ill prepared for.
