Pedestrian deaths are second only to occupant deaths in car accidents. Although crossing the street is a skill most people learn at a young age, doing so safely is not something that should be taken for granted; thousands of pedestrians are injured every year.
If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be eligible for compensation.
Contact a Pedestrian Accident Attorney to protect your legal rights.
