Liability For Huntington Station Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are uniquely vulnerable 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.1 One in six people who died in crashes in 2020 were pedestrians.” There are a number of common causes of car accidents.
- Distracted driving
- Inclement weather
- Poor road conditions
The family of any person that died in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the expenses that come with the sudden loss of a loved one. Sadly, though, drivers will often fight hard to deny responsibility for a collision. A wrongful death attorney can examine the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
