Many of our Connecticut roads were designed for cars and high speed traffic. They were not designed with pedestrians in mind. Connecticut has been ranked the 30th worst state for pedestrian safety.
Common causes for pedestrian accidents include:
- failing to yield
- not paying attention to road signs
- ignoring a crosswalk
- distracted driving
- texting or talking on the phone
- driving under the influence
Pedestrians have no protection from the impact. Consequently, pedestrians suffer serious injuries. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, our lawyers are ready to help you.
