The streets of Boston and its surrounding Massachusetts communities are often filled with activity that poses a very real threat to the safety of pedestrians, who share public streets with cars, trains, buses, bicyclists, and other vehicles. In the event that you are involved in an accident as a pedestrian, you will likely need the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney to guide you through the financial problems that will arise towards recovery, and Altman & Altman LLP of Cambridge is second to none.
In a perfect world, laws protecting pedestrians would always be followed. Unfortunately, the rules of the road are not always understood or observed by motorists and the pedestrian right-of-way at stop signs and crosswalks are often ignored, resulting in accidents injuring pedestrians. Pedestrians have no physical barriers to protect themselves when they are hit by a car, truck, or other vehicles, so they are very susceptible to injury. Pedestrian accidents can result in injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Skin burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Severe cuts and bruises
When a pedestrian is involved in an accident, there are a number of legal implications which can complicate the person's recovery. For instance, who pays medical costs? What about lost wages? And what if the accident is a hit-and-run? Or the injured pedestrian does not have health insurance?
