The Dangers of a West Palm Beach Pedestrian Accident
According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a pedestrian is injured in a traffic accident approximately every eight minutes. When a pedestrian is injured in an accident of this kind, the likelihood of serious injury is greatly increased. The difference in size and weight of a human being versus a motor vehicle places a pedestrian at a significant disadvantage in the event of a collision. Even in a low-speed accident, a pedestrian may suffer catastrophic injury including broken bones, head trauma, damage to internal organs, spinal cord injury, and serious lacerations and contusions.
