Legal Representation For Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrian accidents are always unexpected. Most people know cars are dangerous and that motor vehicle crashes occur with unsettling regularity. But when you go for a walk, are crossing a street or just going from your car in a parking lot, you probably don’t think much about the risk.
Pedestrian Accidents On The Rise
In the last few years, even at a time when most traffic fatalities were declining, pedestrian accidents were increasing, with a corresponding increase in deaths. The cause is unclear, but some suggest that it is due to the increasing use of smartphones, leading to more distracting driving accidents and collisions. While the cause may be unclear, the devastating results of these crashes are abundantly clear.
