Pedestrian Accidents in Alabama
Pedestrian accidents take place far too often in the state of Alabama. In fact, our state currently ranks as one of the most dangerous states for pedestrian traffic. Victims are harmed and lose their lives in these crashes at an alarming rate.
Victims who are involved in pedestrian accidents are often left with severe and life-altering injuries. Some of the most common injuries suffered by pedestrians in crashes include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and severely broken bones.
Although we see many people out walking every single day to their destinations, sharing the road with negligent drivers can have a very negative impact on your life. No matter how careful and considerate you are while traveling along our state’s roadways, there is no way to guarantee that you will not be harmed. We simply do not have the ability to control how other drivers act.
