Pedestrians need to be careful
Though there have been numerous advertising and marketing campaigns around the world, encouraging motorists to take care and be wary of pedestrians, more and more people get hurt on a yearly basis in traffic accidents, accidents that happened when they were innocently walking along.
- Broken bones – anyone who has ever had to get a bone set after a break will be able to tell you how painful it is. As a pedestrian, the impact of being hit by a car means that your whole body, from bones to organs, is at risk. Broken bones must be set in a hospital and though you won’t be able to heal immediately, you can at least contact a solicitor who can help.
- Head trauma – if you are hit by a car, the chances are that you will hit your head hard and this can cause a wealth of problems, from concussion to brain bleeds. It is vital that you are checked in a hospital after this occurs, because even if you only have a concussion, your life is still at risk if the problem is not treated.
- Scrapes and scratches – as you may be able to imagine, any skin contact with the road after being hit will result in some scraping and scratching of the epidermis. This is not fatal but it is very painful and can result in infection if not cleaned quickly and thoroughly. This is the kind of problem that is not serious at its beginning, but if it is allowed to advance, it will need proper care.
