Woman struck by car while crossing street

A woman was recently injured after being struck by a vehicle while crossing the street right here in Hartford, according to police records. The authorities say that they arrived at the scene of an accident between a vehicle and pedestrian to find that the woman had been struck and injured.

According to reports, the woman was crossing the street with her family when an elderly driver ignored a traffic light and struck the woman. Police noted that the pedestrian walking signal was even in effect when the accident occurred. It is thankful that the woman was the sole victim of the accident, since she was crossing the street with her husband and children.

Unfortunately, car accidents don't just involve those somewhat protected inside another vehicles. It is very common for negligent or distracted drivers to strike pedestrians, often causing serious injury. If you or someone you love has been struck by a vehicle, it is crucial to receive professional medical care as soon as you can — even if you don't think you've been seriously injured. Some injuries may not present themselves immediately, especially if you suffered a blow to the head. Blows to the head are very common in vehicle-pedestrian collisions, and a mild traumatic brain injury may not express itself for some time.

Knowing how to respond after a car accident, especially one between a vehicle and a pedestrian is often tricky business. If you have been struck by a vehicle, be sure to consult with an experienced attorney. With proper legal counsel, you can ensure that you receive fair treatment and protect your rights.
