Pedestrian accidents have steadily increased in Australia’s largest cities, including Melbourne. In 2013, more than 35 individuals were tragically killed in Victorian pedestrian accidents, reports the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). Of the more than 35 pedestrians killed, 86 percent were killed in accidents occurring in the Melbourne metropolitan area. In addition to a tragic death, pedestrian accidents can also result in a serious injury for an individual walking or jogging in Melbourne.

After being hit by a car, heavy truck, motorcycle, bus or train, pedestrians may suffer several types of serious injuries. Some of the more common types of pedestrian accident injuries, include:
Brain injuries are the result of the brain being “shaken” within the skull or being penetrated by an object. When the brain sustains damage, functions such as speech, thought or movement can be temporarily or permanently affected. Individuals suffering from a moderate or severe brain injury typically face a lifetime of medical care and treatment.
Broken bone injuries
Broken bones are usually described as either open or closed fractures. A closed fracture refers to the bone breaking without producing an external wound. An open fracture is when a bone breaks and penetrates the skin, producing an open wound. Open bone fractures can cause deep bone infection.
Spinal cord injuries
Damage to the spinal cord can cause temporary and permanent loss of movement. When the spinal cord is damaged permanently at and below the site of the injury location, it is classified as a complete spinal cord injury. Individuals suffering from a complete spinal cord injury are often referred to as paraplegics or tetraplegics.
