Liability For Montgomery County Car Accidents

Thousands of pedestrians are critically injured in car accidents each year. 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 2021.1 That’s about one death every 66 minutes. One in six people who died in crashes in 2021 were pedestrians.” There are a number of common causes of car accidents.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver intoxication

The vast majority of collisions are preventable. It has been estimated that nearly 93% of all collisions involve some amount of driver error. If a driver fails to slow down to avoid hitting a pedestrian, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
