A lot of the time when people think of a traffic accident, they automatically think of two or more cars colliding resulting in an accident. However, a traffic accident is any accident involving a motor vehicle. Specific traffic collision scenarios will vary and can involve a car hitting:
- A person
- Another motor vehicle
- A piece of property
Our personal injury attorney has experience handling all types of traffic accidents including pedestrian accidents. A pedestrian accident is classified as an accident in which a person is struck by a motor vehicle. While most pedestrian accidents occur on major roadways it is important to keep in mind that this can happen anywhere.
Pedestrian accidents are different from your typically auto accident because these injuries are often more severe and life threatening. This is for one simple reason- pedestrians don’t have the protection surrounding them like one does while riding in a car.
If you or a loved one has been hurt as a result of a pedestrian traffic accident then it is important that you start building your case. Call our Lancaster, PA office today to schedule your initial consultation.
