Aggressive Attorneys Fighting for Kentucky’s Injured Pedestrians
In Kentucky, more than 3,500 accidents involving pedestrians occurred between 2005 and 2007. These accidents resulted in 175 people losing their lives. If you are wondering how Louisville compares to the rest of the world, you might be surprised to learn that it is one of the most dangerous cities in the world for pedestrians. Sadly, many of those who are injured or killed in pedestrian accidents are children between the ages of five and nine.
Reasons for Pedestrian Accidents
Most of the time, pedestrian accidents occur because drivers are negligent. While this is not the case 100 percent of the time, most pedestrian accidents are caused by drivers who:
- Fail to stop at crosswalks and intersections for pedestrians
- Travel above the speed limit
- Fail to use turn signals
- Drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Fail to reduce speeds in work or school zones
- Fail to stop when following buses, both school and public
- Text and/or use cellphones while driving
