Pedestrian accidents in Tennessee
Around 80 pedestrians are injured in auto collisions each month in Tennessee. Although occupants of motor vehicles are protected by the steel frames of their cars, pedestrians lack this type of protection. As a result, many victims injured in accidents suffer traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and spinal cord injuries in accidents. When pedestrians are injured in accidents, due to the reckless actions of others, they should contact a pedestrian accident attorney in Tennessee as soon as possible to explore legal options available to them.
