Pedestrian Accidents in Connecticut
Because pedestrians have no protection from harm, they are more likely to lose their lives in the event of an accident than many other parties on our roads. Pedestrian accidents are highly preventable but happen in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. In one recent year, it was estimated that approximately 61 pedestrians were killed in fatal accidents due to reckless reasons.
