Pedestrian Accidents in Alabama

Every single day, innocent people across the state of Alabama have their lives completely torn upside down as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Regrettably, these accidents are often caused by drivers who act negligently and recklessly while operating their vehicles.

When pedestrians are involved in motor vehicle accidents, they are at an increased risk of suffering severe and life-changing injuries. This is due to the fact that they are unprotected from the severe impact of motor vehicles. Some of the most common injuries reported in pedestrian crashes in Alabama include:

  • Internal organ injuries

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Broken bones

  • Severe cuts and lacerations

  • Spinal cord injuries


When victims find themselves injured in accidents, they may have the option to pursue legal action against the responsible party, especially in cases where negligence played a role in causing the accident.
