Pedestrian Accident Claims Are On The Rise
Walking as a form of recreation or to get to and from work has become an increasingly enjoyable activity across not just Baton Rouge but across the nation. Many people recognize the health benefits of walking and may even save time and money by not using their vehicles. However, being on your feet comes with additional risks. Drivers are frequently not paying attention to walkers.
A pedestrian is at a much higher risk of critical injuries in an accident because of their direct exposure to vehicles and oncoming traffic. A collision occurring in the center of the street whether it involves somebody walking, a child inside a stroller or an individual in a wheelchair can change the victim’s life forever.
If you have been hurt in an accident while you were walking in or near a roadway because of someone else’s carelessness, seek medical care right away. You should never write off accident injuries as minimal. You need to seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident to discover any potential injuries. When you are able, reach out to a personal injury attorney. Call Joubert Law Firm, APLC, at 225-424-5399 for a free consultation to learn more.
