Pedestrian Accidents in Louisville, Kentucky
Pedestrian crashes throughout our state leave countless victims with debilitating injuries each year. In many instances, innocent parties are left with brain injuries, broken bones, and spinal cord damage that can result in the need of extensive medical treatment. Even though there have been several advancements made in the health care industry, there is no guarantee that treatment options will completely cure victims of their injuries. In fact, thousands of victims of vehicle accidents are left with permanent disabilities.
Every day, innocent victims are rushed to local hospitals immediately after their accidents and forced to undergo surgery. Thousands of innocent parties who are harmed in crashes have to spend time off work to recover and go through months of therapy for their injuries. In some cases, injured victims never fully recover. Instead, they are left to deal with overwhelming mental, physical, and financial consequences. There are many instances where people are hurt in accidents caused by the negligence of others. In fact, distractions, impairment, and other acts of negligence contribute to more than 80% of crashes that take place in our state each year.
