Pedestrian Vehicle Accidents in Colorado
The injuries incurred by pedestrians who are struck by vehicles can be potentially be both serious and permanent. Modern vehicles are designed to shield their occupants from the impact of another vehicle while at the same time; employing active safety restraints to physically protect their occupants from the impact of the other vehicle. As a pedestrian who is struck by a vehicle, you have none of these vehicle protections if you are struck by a negligent driver while you are on foot. Your body directly absorbs all of the force of the vehicle’s impact; your body will directly physically sustain the damage inflicted by force and contact with the striking vehicle. Unfortunately for pedestrians, your odds of suffering a serious and permanent injury increase substantially when you are struck by a vehicle while on foot.
