Pedestrian Accidents in Connecticut
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads due to the fact that they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. Many lives are lost as a result of pedestrian accidents throughout the state of Connecticut every single year. In fact, in just one recent year, over 61 lives were lost as a result of pedestrian accidents throughout Connecticut. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. If you have suffered severe injuries as a result of a pedestrian accident, you should always seek the immediate help of a legal advocate.
