Standing Up For The Safety Of Rochester Pedestrians
Countless Rochester residents and visitors walk, run or jog around the city every day. Whether you’re strolling along the South Fork Zumbro River or walking from place to place downtown, you deserve to enjoy yourself and stay safe. But when drivers are careless, these activities can turn into nightmares.
At Restovich Braun & Associates, we defend Rochester pedestrians who have been hit by vehicles. Since 1992, we have stood up for injury victims in our community. We are compassionate and confident, caring yet tenacious, and will strive to get you compensated no matter how difficult it may be.
Pedestrian Accidents In Minnesota
On average, around 225 people suffer fatal and nonfatal injuries in Minnesota pedestrian accidents each year. While that makes us safer for pedestrians than many other places, this number is far too high. There’s no reason why so many pedestrians should be injured or killed in accidents in the North Star State.
Common Injuries In Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are minimally protected in accidents, and as a result they can suffer severe – and sometimes fatal – injuries. Some common ones include:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
Medical treatment isn’t cheap, and bills can pile up for victims. Making ends meet can be tough for those who can’t work after an accident. And insurance companies often lowball victims who deserve full compensation. For these reasons, it’s crucial to turn to an attorney for help: they’ll ensure you don’t have to bear the costs alone.
