Indianapolis Among most Dangerous American Cities for Pedestrians
May 13, 2015
According to a report published by the advocacy group Smart Growth America, Indianapolis ranks among the most dangerous cities in terms of pedestrian safety. Titled “Dangerous by Design,” the report ranks cities based on a “Pedestrian Danger Index” which indicates the likelihood of a person who is on foot being involved in a fatal vehicle collision. Out of 51 cities, Indianapolis ranked 25th, with almost 200 pedestrian fatalities occurring between the years of 2003 through 2012. In addition, Indiana ranked 23rd among the 50 states as having the most dangerous streets for pedestrians.
In Indianapolis, regarding injury law and finding an tough attorney or lawyer to fight for you,
When pedestrians are struck by motor vehicles, the injuries they can sustain can be catastrophic. In addition, those struck by vehicles while walking are often young children or older adults, who are already more prone to injury. Regardless of a pedestrian’s age, it is a fact that the human body is no match for a motor vehicle collision. Some of the more common injuries that people sustain in pedestrian accidents include:
Traumatic brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Depending on the severity of these injuries, victims of pedestrian accidents may incur significant medical expenses that cost well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition, the injuries sustained after being hit by a car or truck could keep a person from working for an extended period of time, and may even result in disabilities that necessitate in-home medical care. Obviously, these and other issues that can arise after a serious accident can have significant financial consequences. Fortunately for victims, Indiana law allows for victims of negligently caused pedestrian accidents to recover for these and other losses by filing a personal injury claim. Pedestrian accident claims are often complicated, so it is advisable for anyone who has been injured by a motorist to discuss their case with an Indianapolis pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident occurs.
