Pedestrians are more vulnerable than their automobile driver counterparts. They don't have the luxury of seatbelts, airbags or roll bars to help protect them in an accident. Even when a vehicle is driving at a low rate of speed, if it strikes a pedestrian, the damage can be extensive and even fatal. As a result, pedestrians involved in car accidents in North San Diego County suffer from a multitude of injuries including:
- Bone fractures
- Emotional injury
- Face and neck injury
- Pelvic injury
- Serious brain and spinal cord injury
- Temporary or permanent disability
