Liability For Riverhead Pedestrian Accidents

Thousands of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every year in car accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “More than 7,000 pedestrians were killed on our nation’s roads in crashes involving a motor vehicle in 2020. That’s about one death every 75 minutes.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to a pedestrian collision.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions

The vast majority of pedestrian accidents are avoidable and involve some amount of driver error. In particular, drivers must slow down to avoid hitting pedestrians in the roadway.
