Our Bridgeton pedestrian crash attorneys are well aware of the problems you may be facing in the aftermath of a serious pedestrian accident. A severe crash can be detrimental to your health and well-being in numerous ways, including physical, emotional, and financial. You may be suffering from severe injuries such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, broken bones, and more.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be stuck in the hospital for a prolonged period of time, unable to work. This is not only difficult to endure but may be financially unsustainable.
