Lawyers For Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accidents

Walking is an activity enjoyed not only for its health benefits, but is also environmentally friendly and, for many, a necessary means of transportation to and from work. Everyday, millions of people take to the sidewalks and designated walking paths of our roadways, innocently travelling by foot to their destination. Unfortunately, even though pedestrians are granted the right-of-way in nearly every situation, thousands are injured or killed each year.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) most recently published Traffic Safety Fact Sheet, an estimated 70,000 pedestrians were injured and over 5,300 were killed in vehicle-pedestrian collisions in 2015.

If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a vehicle-pedestrian accident you may be entitled to compensation for losses as well as for pain and suffering. The pedestrian accident attorneys at Action Legal Group understand the many complex issues victims and their loved ones face after a vehicle-pedestrian collision, and have years of experience in successfully handling pedestrian accident claims. If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a pedestrian accident, please call the attorneys at Action Legal Group today for a free consultation.
