Everyone knows that pedestrians can suffer serious injuries when struck by cars. However, when speeds are slow such as in driveway accidents, many people may not realize that pedestrians are still at risk of suffering injuries. While injuries to pedestrians may be more fatal when a drier runs a red light at high speeds, pedestrians can still suffer serious injuries when cars are traveling at lower speeds.
The injuries suffered by pedestrians in Florida driveway accidents can be serious and can include the following injuries:
- Broken legs and ankles
- Knee injuries
- Shoulder and arm injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Nerve damage
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injury
- Crush injuries
Any of the aforementioned injuries can result in expensive medical bills and time off of work. When injured pedestrians can’t work or make a living while their medical and rehabilitation bills are piling up, injured pedestrians should reach out to a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer.
