Liability For Sherburne Car Accidents
Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured every year in pedestrian accidents. According to the CDC, “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. One in six people who died in crashes in 2020 were pedestrians.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to a car accident.
- Distracted driving

- Poor road conditions
The family of any person that is killed in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and funeral expenses. Sadly, though, it is common for drivers to deny liability for any collision they are involved in. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
