Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries in New York
Pedestrian accidents are generally more serious because the human body is incapable of tolerating the great impact of an accident with an automobile that weighs so much more. Regardless of what speed the motor vehicle was traveling at the point of contact, the injuries will nonetheless be more serious than a car-on-car accident.
Some of the most common pedestrian injuries include:
- Head and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Fractured or broken bones
- Back injuries, including paralysis
