Louisville, KY (December 29, 2021) – One woman was left with injuries following a pedestrian accident in the Louisville area on Tuesday afternoon. On December 28, the Louisville Metro Police Department was notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of a crash on Taylor Boulevard.
Reports from authorities show that just after 1:20 p.m., a female pedestrian was walking on Taylor Boulevard. For unknown reasons, a vehicle passed through the intersection of Bluegrass Avenue and struck her.
The woman suffered injuries in the accident. She was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital for care.
Our thoughts are with the woman who was injured in this accident. We hope for her full recovery.
Pedestrian Accidents in Kentucky
Pedestrian accidents claim the lives of nearly 100 people every year in the state of Kentucky. Countless others are left with injuries that negatively impact their health and wellbeing. We see many pedestrians suffer traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and even internal organ damage from crashes. These and other injuries often require emergency medical care.
Unfortunately, given the vulnerability of pedestrians during accidents, victims often require long-term care as well. Thousands of people have to spend time off work to recover and go through months of therapy for their injuries. In some cases, victims never fully recover from their injuries and are left to deal with overwhelming mental, physical, and financial consequences.
Although most pedestrians are alert and aware of their surroundings while walking along busy roadways, there is no way to predict how drivers are going to act. We see many pedestrians injured as a result of motorists who are distracted, impaired, or engaging in reckless driving behaviors.
When victims are injured in accidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance by calling a pedestrian accident attorney in Louisville as soon as possible. Victims may be able to obtain compensation to help cover the costs of medical treatment, alleviate the impacts of lost wages, and cover various economic and non-economic damages they face after being injured.
