Pedestrian Accidents Can Lead to Serious Laceration Injuries

Blog Category:
Comments (0)

When a car hits a pedestrian on Bee Ridge Road, a pedestrian may fly through the air, hit the windshield, and bounce off the car and onto the hard ground. During an accident of this nature, it is common for a pedestrian to suffer serious injuries such as lacerations, cuts, and tears. Unfortunately, broken glass, debris, and blunt force trauma from the impact of the vehicle often causes laceration injuries in pedestrians.

Laceration injuries can occur to a pedestrian’s:

  • Face
  • Head
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs

Raging from minor to severe injuries, lacerations can lead to internal organ injuries, muscle and nerve damage, amputations, and other permanent injuries. Whether a pedestrian suffers tearing of soft body tissue, permanent scarring, or disfigurement, an injured pedestrian will need to make a physical recovery that often involves sutures, emergency surgery, painful medical procedures, cosmetic surgery, other treatments and rehabilitation.

Unfortunately, insurance companies typically don’t view laceration injuries as serious injuries, and often want to pay injured victims less than what their claims are really worth. If the negligence of a driver caused your pedestrian accident and laceration injury, it is important that you make a full financial recovery for your damages including wage loss, medical expenses, and pain suffering.
