Joggers and Skaters Vulnerable to Injuries

Joggers and skaters are particularly vulnerable to injuries because they tend to take to the streets before or after work. These are times of the day when drivers may be in a hurry or when visibility may not be ideal.

People who enjoy jogging or skating, whether on inline skates, roller skates or a skateboard, are wise to use reflective vests or other visibility equipment. Unfortunately as with bicyclists, they have little protection against severe injury when struck by a vehicle. A person hit by a vehicle can face severe internal injuries, broken bones, and even injuries that lead to death.

Despite precautions taken by joggers and skaters, they still are at risk from distracted drivers who may be using cell phones, adjusting radios or sending text messages.

If you or a loved one has been injured while jogging or skating, get medical attention and contact Metzger Wickersham immediately. Our experienced personal injury attorneys may be able to assist you or your loved one in your case.
