Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most critical accidents because pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable people on the roads. These accidents put pedestrians at risk of serious injuries. Since this is the case, all drivers must remember to look out for pedestrians, and pedestrians must remain aware when they are near vehicles. We must all take a shared responsibility to keep our roads safe and reduce the risk of an accident happening. We can all help keep each other safe.
Pedestrian accidents can have catastrophic or even deadly consequences. While this accident did not cause any fatalities, there are some pedestrian accidents that do because pedestrians are not protected by helmets or seatbelts. These accidents can devastate lives and leave victims to deal with major injuries. We urge all drivers to remember to look out for pedestrians and do all they can to prevent these accidents. Pedestrians should also remember to keep vigilant and attentive when near roadways and especially when crossing the street.
We at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman are very aware of the consequences of pedestrian accidents as we often help victims suffering after these accidents. As involved members of the community, we want our roads to be safe for everyone. We know that accidents can happen to even the most attentive person, so we are also here to help victims recover the help they need so that they can focus on returning to their lives and the things they love.
