Of the many different types of personal injury cases that can be filed, the ones that involve accidents between a vehicle and a pedestrian are among the most catastrophic of all accidents. These types of accidents tend to be severe and often fatal. This is not surprising considering the difference in size between a metal vehicle and the human body. The more people in an area, the higher chance of pedestrian accidents.
