Boise Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 66,000 individuals were injured in pedestrian accidents in one year in the United States. Since everyone is a pedestrian at some point, everyone is at risk for injuries caused by pedestrian accidents. When a motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian, devastating injuries can result and victims must often receive extensive and costly medical treatment. In addition, many injuries can prohibit a person from returning to work until they have healed–or perhaps never at all.

Common Injuries in a Pedestrian Accident
When a car weighing thousands of pounds collides with a pedestrian, it is no surprise that the collision can cause devastating injuries. Pedestrians often have multiple points of impact and, therefore, often suffer multiple serious injuries, including the following:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI);
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis;
- Broken or shattered bones;
- Internal bleeding or internal organ injury; and
- Neck and back injuries.
These injuries can result in extensive medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income for missed work, and even permanent disabilities. If a pedestrian accident occurred because a driver or another party acted negligently, an injured pedestrian has the right to obtain compensation for all of their losses.
