Mankato Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
A pedestrian accident occurs when what would be a normal walk turns into a tragic accident. Some of the most serious accidents that occur on Minnesota roads involve pedestrians. While not as common as some other types of accidents, there are pedestrians killed on the roadways and streets in Minnesota every year.
Of the most common types of victims, children top the list because they are small and difficult to see. Children under 10 years of age often don’t hear or see an oncoming vehicle.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident that was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to hold that person responsible for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs stemming from the accident. With the help of a highly qualified Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney, you can exercise your right to pursue the other party for damages.
Protecting Your Well-Being
There are a number of common injuries that result from pedestrian accidents. They include:
- Head and brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Wrongful death
- Spinal cord injuries
These are just some of the injuries that can result from a pedestrian accident. In some cases, the accidents lead to the death of the victim. In that case, the family can pursue loss of support, medical expenses if applicable, funeral costs, and other damages. The goal of your attorney is to protect your rights whether you are the victim or are a family member. This means allowing you to exercise your rights, informing you of what your options are so you can make educated decisions.
