Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents
The most common injuries in pedestrian accidents are head injuries and leg injuries. The most common leg injuries include contusions, abrasions, cuts and scrapes, torn knee ligaments, broken bones, and beaks in the hip or pelvis.
Head injuries include deep cuts to the scalp, skull fractures, concussions, swelling in the skull, hemorrhages, and hematomas. Head injuries can be a result of the pedestrian hitting their head when they fall after impact, or hitting their head on the windshield, hood of the vehicle, or on surrounding structures.
Injuries to the torso are also very commonly seen in pedestrian accidents, especially when the vehicle is larger, such as with a van, SUV, or truck. These injuries can involve damage to the ribcage, liver, or lungs.
