How are pedestrian accident claims different from car accident claims?

Answer:

What are the differences between an injury case involving a pedestrian versus and one with two automobiles? For one, pedestrian cases are typically more serious cases. There’s a saying that there’s no such thing as a minor pedestrian-automobile accident case.

Differences Between Pedestrian And Car Accident Cases

One of the things that is different medically is that so many times, there is a traumatic brain injury that does not manifest itself immediately. We haven’t found a case yet where a pedestrian’s been wearing a helmet. If they get hit, they can strike everything imaginable, including their head.

Traumatic brain injuries can manifest themselves later. That’s why it’s important to get treated completely immediately after the accident. That’s one of the major differences. There are differences connected with insurance as well.
