Pedestrians Hit by Cars Causing Broken Bones in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Whenever a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle it can result in serious personal injuries or even death. This is an obvious fact as pedestrians are not protected by anything; they are not enclosed in a steel shell of a motor vehicle, they do not have helmets on, there are no airbags or seatbelts to mitigate damage, and they usually do not see the impact prior to it happening so they cannot brace themselves properly. Broken bones are very common. This is why pedestrian knockdown cases are some of the most serious cases that a personal injury attorney can handle.
