Pedestrian accidents result in serious personal injury.
Pedestrians are at risk of serious head, neck and back injury; broken bones and internal organ damage. Victims of pedestrian accidents report emotional psychological trauma in addition to physical injuries.
If you or a loved one are involved in a pedestrian accident, seek immediate medical care from a licensed and experienced medical provider. An ambulance may be required to take you to the closest hospital for treatment.
The force of a pedestrian accident often renders lasting pain that can take the body a few days to absorb. Victims report more pain a few days post-accident. Bruising, tenderness, headaches, nausea, and irritability are common symptoms. These should all be treated by licensed and experienced medical professionals.
Notify family and friends of your situation and confirm that you are okay. Sharing your trauma often eases your pain and relieves the worry from loved ones.
