Liability For Irondequoit Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are uniquely vulnerable in car accidents. They lack the protection of enclosed vehicles and are more likely to be overlooked. According to the IIHS, “Pedestrian motor vehicle crash deaths have increased 59 percent since reaching their low point in 2009 and account for 17 percent of crash fatalities. The rates of pedestrian deaths in motor vehicle crashes per 100,000 people are highest for people ages 20-69.” Victims of pedestrian accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Organ damage
It can be difficult to know where to begin after any collision. But it is important for accident victims to know that they do have rights. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
