Although a popular form of exercise across the nation, it can be dangerous. Since jogging on the streets is a common location where people run, vehicle traffic is always a danger. Many runner accidents occur due to the vehicle driver's negligence from inattention, speeding, alcohol or violating common road laws. Because both you and the vehicle are moving at a fast rate of speed, this too, can increase the chances of being unable to avoid an impact.
These types of injuries can result in long term medical care being needed, as well as a lengthy recovery period, not to mention the emotional and physical pain and suffering. You may also be unable to work for an extensive period of time.
While the negligent party's insurance company may be willing to work with you, this does not take the place of having an experienced legal professional ensuring you are compensated for all of your losses. We advise you to contact Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law to find out how we can help you.
