Some of the most detrimental crashes occur between a vehicle and a pedestrian or bicycle rider. The sheer lack of protection can quickly lead to catastrophic injuries up to and including death. We are certainly grateful that no one passed away as a result of this accident, and we hope the victim has a speedy recovery while police determine the cause of the crash. Once it has been determined that the driver was operating the vehicle in a negligent manner, then the victim will be able to decide if he wishes to pursue legal action.
Of course, it is consistently recommended that each and every victim decides how they want to go about taking action after an accident. We recommend seeking medical help no matter the extent of injuries since more complicated problems can often arise later on in life. In any event, the most important thing for the victim, in this case, is to remain focused on his health.
