Any type of traffic accident comes with the potential of suffering a catastrophic injury, but pedestrians involved in traffic accidents are particularly at risk for sustaining serious injuries. Pedestrians have little to no protection when they are crossing the street in Richmond, or anywhere else in Virginia. Being struck by a vehicle while crossing the street can result in potentially life-threatening injuries.
Pedestrian Accidents Can Lead To High Medical Bills and Long-term Care
Catastrophic injuries typically lead to extremely expensive medical bills and long-term medical care.
