Pedestrian Accidents in Connecticut
Pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident, which means that they could be seriously injured or even killed when an accident occurs. Especially in the event of a hit-and-run accident when a driver flees the scene, a pedestrian might not get the care they need following a serious crash. Because of this, many pedestrians are hospitalized every single year. If you have been hurt in one of these accidents and wonder where you can turn, you should seek the immediate help of an accident attorney who has your best interests in mind.
The aftermath of a Connecticut pedestrian accident can have an enormous impact on your life on physical, emotional, and financial levels.
