Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Archives

Take appropriate action after you are struck by a car

Being struck by a vehicle is the stuff that a pedestrian's nightmares would include. When this happens in real life, there are some specific steps you should take. It is imperative that you work to protect yourself immediately in these cases.

Determine who is liable for hitting your child in a driveway

Thinking about someone running over your child in a driveway is a heart-stopping thought. Sadly, this is what some parents have to deal with. If your child is struck while in a driveway, he or she might suffer from serious injuries that require medical care.

Swift action is necessary when you are struck by a vehicle

Being struck by a vehicle when you are on a bike or walking is a devastating experience. You might not have seen the car coming. If you did see the car coming, you likely didn't have a chance to react. In any case, you should understand that you do have the option of seeking compensation for your injuries.

Pedestrian accidents can have catastrophic consequences

Stamford is a busy city that has a lot to see. Many people choose to walk around the city, especially when the weather is nice. If you are a pedestrian, you have to make sure that you are walking on roads that are safe. Typically, walking on the interstate and highway isn't safe to do. You may have noticed the warning signs on on ramps to the interstate that note that pedestrians are specifically forbidden on the roadway. This is a serious warning because of the dangers that these roads pose to pedestrians.

Know the points to consider in pedestrian and bicyclist crashes

Think about the number of people who are walking around Stamford on a daily basis. Each one of these people assumes that he or she is going to make it where they are going safely. Sadly, this doesn't always happen. People walking around or even bicycling around can be struck by vehicles.

A few safety tips to help pedestrians stay safe

Pedestrians walk for many different reasons, including trying to be more environmentally friendly or just because they don't want the expense of a car. No matter why you are choosing to walk, you should try to be as safe as you can. Before you head out on your walk, think about these safety tips.

Pedestrian accidents can be financially devastating

We recently discussed some of the unique hazards that pedestrians face during the winter months. One of these is the risk of slipping and falling on the ice that accumulates on the sidewalks. When this occurs, the pedestrian can slide into the way of an oncoming vehicle. This could lead to a very serious accident. It is also a reason why drivers must be especially careful to watch for pedestrians during the winter months.

Pedestrians face specific challenges in the winter months

The winter months are full of challenges for pedestrians in Connecticut thanks to snow and ice on crosswalks, sidewalks, parking lots and more. Planning ahead to combat these challenges can help you to get to your destination safely if you have to walk when the streets and sidewalks are slippery and dangerous.
