Pedestrian Accident Investigation
Cars, trucks, and buses present a risk to pedestrians on sidewalks and in crosswalks. Negligence on their behalf can quickly cause serious injuries. Reckless driving, drunk driving, and distracted driving cause many drivers to make poor decisions that result in running lights, stop signs, or swerving on the road. Every year 5,000 pedestrians are killed in these accidents and over 80,000 are injured.
Victims of pedestrian accidents need to fight for their rights and expose the negligence of irresponsible drivers.
