Connect With Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Near You

Do you need a pedestrian accident lawyer?

Accidents between vehicles and pedestrians are common enough that one pedestrian death occurs about every 1.6 hours on our nation’s roads and highways, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Injuries resulting from a pedestrian accident are often much worse than those that passengers might suffer in the automobile. The reason for this is that pedestrians do not have the protection that car passengers have during a collision. Driving laws protect pedestrians, skaters, and cyclists from inattentive or careless car drivers. So, if you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident than it is important to know your legal rights. At Ask Duke, we are committed to getting you the care and representation you need to recover and get back to a normal life.

 

Leading Reasons for the Accident: Drivers do not always use the roads in a safe and responsible manner. Distracted drivers are the leading cause of car accidents in the country. These negligent individuals are often distracted by simple activities such as cell phone use, eating and drinking or putting on makeup. Some drivers who are running late act aggressively and often do not yield the right of way to pedestrians or bicyclists in bike lanes. But the greatest threats to pedestrians often come from drunk drivers.
