Common Pedestrian Injuries

Although the extent of the pedestrian’s injuries are unclear, such accidents routinely result in serious injuries, including:

Broken bones and bone fractures: Pedestrian accidents often result in fractures and serious bone breaks, including compound fractures in which the bone breaks the skin. Such injuries are often extremely painful and can result in long-term health problems.

Soft tissue damage: Soft tissue damage includes lacerations, contusions, sprains, strains, tears, and dislocations. Although soft tissue damage often heals quicker than other types of pedestrian injuries, it can result in scars, severe pain, and even long-term problems.

Traumatic brain injuries: Traumatic brain injuries are another common type of pedestrian injury. These types of injuries can range from mild to life changing, and they are often accompanied by a host of symptoms.

Spinal cord injuries: Finally, pedestrian accidents result in thousands of spinal cord injuries every year. Spinal cord injuries are extremely serious and can result in paralysis or death.
