Pedestrian Accidents

Unfortunately, accidents involving pedestrians happen quite often in the United States, many of which result in serious injury or death. Recent statistics even show that a pedestrian is killed in a traffic accident once every 111 minutes. Naturally, pedestrians are at a greater risk of injury than any other non-occupant group involved in motor vehicle accidents. Almost 90% of all fatalities involving non-occupants are pedestrians, rather than those bicycles, skateboards, etc. These statistics make it clear that pedestrians should take extra care to protect themselves from serious injury while walking or running on roads and sidewalks. However, sometimes no amount of caution on the part of a pedestrian will prevent an accident.

No matter who is at fault in an accident involving a pedestrian, victims should seek the assistance of an attorney who is experienced with personal injury law.
