Liability For Rochester Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians lack the protection of enclosed vehicles and are more likely to be overlooked by drivers. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Nearly 8,000 pedestrians were killed on our nation’s roads in crashes involving a motor vehicle in 2021. That’s about one death every 66 minutes. One in six people who died in crashes in 2021 were pedestrians.” Victims of pedestrian accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
All drivers must use caution in order to avoid hitting any pedestrian in the roadway. There is a rebuttable presumption of negligence on the part of any driver that goes onto a sidewalk and hits a pedestrian. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
