5 More Common New Haven Personal Injuries After A Pedestrian Accident

A few days ago, we published a blog on common injuries pedestrians are vulnerable to. We have five more New Haven personal injuries that are common for pedestrians who get into an accident.

  1. Amputations. In some instances, pedestrian accidents can have serious lifelong repercussions on the victim’s body such as amputation of limbs and extremities.
  2. Broken Bones. Broken bones are some of the most common injuries sustained by pedestrians who are struck by cars, trucks, or other motorized vehicles. These injuries occur when an external force causes a break in the continuity of a bone. Broken bones can be extremely painful and can require intensive medical treatment to correct.
  3. Injured Extremities. Extremities are at risk of injury as well. The impact from a vehicle can cause pedestrians to suffer injuries such as scrapes, broken bones, or even, in some extreme cases, a loss of an extremity resulting from a serious injury.
  4. Emotional Trauma. Not all injuries are physical. In fact, even if an individual does not suffer permanent physical injuries, he or she may suffer from emotional trauma.
  5. Death. Pedestrians being struck by a vehicle are at high risk of death. This is caused not only by the sheer size of vehicles but also because of the lack of protection for the pedestrian.
