Think about all the times you are on foot during the week:
Those are just some of the times you may find yourself walking on any given day. They are also all times when a careless driver could hit you.
Did you know that 2017 saw 9,102 pedestrian related accidents?
Out of those, there were 667 fatalities and 7,796 injuries.
Almost every pedestrian crash resulted in a death or injury.
This is because our bodies just can’t protect themselves from vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds. The damage that can be inflicted on the human body by a vehicle is tremendous. Even at slower speeds, major injuries can occur.
Some result in long-term disabilities.
They could all mean that you have to miss time from work. The lost income is something that could jeopardize the livelihood of your family.
Pedestrians are often hit by careless drivers. Sometimes, drivers are distracted by their phones. When a driver takes their eyes off the road to read or send a text message, or watch a video clip, they are jeopardizing the lives of everyone around them.
A drunk or drug impaired driver is deadly to other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Any time a driver is operating in a reckless manner and causes damages and injuries, they should be held accountable both criminally and financially.
We’re sorry you have to go through this. The Dante Law Firm knows that any injury has the potential to upend you and your family’s life. The medical bills can pile up quickly and, if you have to miss work, you may wonder how you can afford things like food and your regular bills.
