Pedestrian Accidents Are Often Caused by Cars
Most Ogden, UT pedestrian accidents are caused by cars in which the pedestrian suffers serious injuries which may include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones or may ultimately result in the death of the pedestrian.
These types of injuries are almost always very severe because of the speed of the oncoming car and how fragile a person is compared to a 2,000 pound vehicle traveling at 35 mph. When a car or truck hits a pedestrian, he / she may be knocked over or even run over, causing internal injuries as well as the general scrapes and scratches associated with coming into contact with the rough road.
