Pedestrian accidents occur every day all over the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “in 2010, 4,280 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States, and another 70,000 were injured. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours, and a pedestrian injury every 8 minutes.” Pedestrian accident injuries are difficult to deal with and can be extremely frustrating. At Sweigart Law Group, we understand, and would like to help you protect your rights in a court of law.
If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries, pain and suffering, and coverage of lost wages.
According to a study by the U.S. Department of Transportation, nearly 46% of pedestrian fatalities were alcohol-involved. Negligent drivers not paying attention to the road, driving drunk, or recklessly driving are just a few of the negligent reasons individuals get in to pedestrian-related accidents.
