Pedestrian accidents can occur on any type of road. A serious accident can happen suddenly, and accidents that involve pedestrians have a high likelihood of being catastrophic. Pedestrians are vulnerable and not protected by helmets or seatbelts. Drivers must look out for pedestrians, and pedestrians must remain vigilant at all times.
The Boston Police Department received a report of a pedestrian accident on June 1. The reporting party told police that at approximately 4:50 p.m. an accident occurred on Beacon Street. Officer Jennifer Cellucci and other responders were dispatched to the scene quickly.
Upon arrival, emergency responders administered medical care to the pedestrian for their injuries. The extent of the injuries is still being determined. However, no fatalities were reported. The scene was secured within the hour, and the victim was transported to the hospital.
Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
Pedestrian accidents can be a very serious matter. They can cause severe injuries or even fatalities, and pedestrians are likely to suffer the more serious traumas. When drivers act negligently, they are putting the lives of others at risk. Drivers must look out for pedestrians, and pedestrians must also remain aware and follow the rules of the road.
We are concerned members of our community who use the roads here each day, and we see the potentially deadly impacts of negligent driving for drivers or pedestrians. As such, we at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman urge all drivers to remain attentive when behind the wheel. However, we know that accidents cannot be completely avoided, so we are also here to help victims recover the assistance and compensation they need to move forward.
