It is therefore imperative that truck drivers are extremely careful in their actions to avoid creating unnecessarily dangerous conditions.
Brain injuries can be caused by many different circumstances including car accidents or playing sports. Regardless of the cause, the impact and treatment of such an injury is unique to the type of injury sustained.
When involved in an accident, those in motor vehicles are afforded more protection from injury than are pedestrians. Because of this, pedestrians who are hit by a car are more likely to sustain significant injuries in an accident. Drivers must be on the lookout for pedestrians, as a failure to do so may result in significant liability.
Highways and interstate highways can create dangerous situations due to the relatively high speeds of vehicles driving on them and the amount of vehicles that may be present. It is important that all drivers are attentive and do not create any unnecessarily dangerous conditions.
