Pedestrian Accidents in Little Rock
According to the National Highway Safety Administration, 5,376 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in 2015, and an additional 129,000 pedestrians were treated in an emergency room for crash-related injuries. A unfortunately high rate of injuries occurs in Little Rock’s metropolitan area. Increased foot-traffic in urban areas leads to an increased likelihood of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle.
If you were involved in an accident involving a pedestrian, contact the Little Rock personal injury lawyers at Taylor King Law. It’s vital that you speak with an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer who can help answer your questions.
Injured while Walking or Cycling?
While any accident carries serious consequences, wrecks involving a pedestrian or cyclist are especially at risk. When a vehicle strikes an unprotected person, it often results in lifelong injuries or permanent disabilities.
Walkers and joggers shouldn’t have to live in fear of traffic. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be legally entitled to compensation.
In an accident involving a pedestrian or cyclist, it may be more difficult to prove who is truly to blame for the crash. Cars must yield to pedestrians, but pedestrians do not always have the right-of-way. Pedestrian laws also vary from state to state, adding to the complexity of your accident.
In this situation, it’s vital to have an local injury lawyer on your side.
