When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle the injuries have the potential to be catastrophic. Even in a low-speed accident in a parking lot, a pedestrian could sustain multiple broken bones or serious spinal cord injuries that leave him or her dealing with pain or a disability for life.
Many of the pedestrian accidents that occur involve the elderly and children. It can be extremely traumatic to discover that a loved one was seriously injured in an incident that wasn't their fault.
