Pedestrian Knockdown Accidents
Being hit by a moving vehicle can be at the very least terrifying for an innocent pedestrian – and at worst, it can be fatal. Over 110,000 pedestrians are injured every year in this country and nearly 62,000 are killed. Faultless victims of all ages are affected by these staggering statistics, but school age children and the elderly are the most vulnerable. In fact, over 1/3rd of pedestrian-related accidents happen when innocent children are leaving school and walking home! Many times the collision is caused by a careless driver who ignores traffic signals or overlooks the pedestrian entirely. This kind of gross negligence is entirely preventable, and the lawbreaker should be held accountable for the costly mistake.
If you obeyed pedestrian laws yet still became the victim of driver negligence, you need to contact a qualified and experienced pedestrian accident attorney or personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so that you can be compensated for your emotional and physical distress. It’s important to start the process immediately so that the investigation can have the time to study and construct the evidence to prove that you were the victim of the driver’s negligence and thus deserve to vindication for your distressing experience.
Don’t let the statute of limitations expire and inhibit your chance for reparations. You deserve an experienced attorney who will help you recover your rightful compensation for being the innocent victim of driving negligence.
