Mississippi Pedestrian Collisions
Pedestrian accidents often end in serious injuries and even fatalities for victims. Because pedestrians are totally unprotected against the force of fast-moving vehicles, they may sustain injuries that will land them in the hospital for days, weeks, or even longer. Some common injuries suffered by pedestrians in traffic accidents include:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Cuts, scrapes, bruises
When a pedestrian sustains a serious injury in a crash, they are usually rushed from the crash scene to a local hospital, where they receive medical treatment for their wounds. Depending on the severity of their injuries, they may spend weeks or longer recovering. In severe cases, pedestrians sustain injuries that end up debilitating them for the remainder of their lives.
