Car Accidents and Injuries
Injuries sustained through the course of vehicle collision can vary widely in intensity and some of them can be quite mild while others can be fatal. These accidents can leave victims suffering from critical injuries that impact their lives in detrimental ways. While car accidents can happen to even the most attentive drivers, careful driving can lessen their likelihood. Accidents that involve pedestrians can be some of the most severe as pedestrians are not wearing any protective gear. All people on roads need to do their part to keep accidents from happening by remaining attentive.
While not all accidents cause serious injuries, there are some vehicle accidents that do. Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most harrowing as pedestrians are vulnerable parties on the road. The serious nature of the above incident shows that accidents can have severe consequences. We must all do our part when behind the wheel to look out for pedestrians. Pedestrians must also do their part by remaining aware and keep vigilant when near moving vehicles.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, we strongly urge all members of the community to remain aware of their surroundings and always follow the rules of the road. We often see the impacts of reckless driving, and we want to reduce the number of these accidents that happen in our communities. Sadly, we know that accidents can happen to even the most attentive individuals, so we are also passionate about helping victims return to their lives by getting the assistance they need to heal.
