Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Archives

Prepare yourself for spring and summer walks

Walking around the Stamford area might be on your to-do list for the warmer weather months. If you are planning on doing this, you need to make sure that you know how to remain a safe pedestrian. After all, your goal is to make it home at the end of your journey.

Pedestrians and bicyclists should be able to move about safely

Pedestrians and bicyclists need to make sure that they are able to get around the city safely. When there is an accident, they can suffer some very serious injuries that make it impossible to live life in the same way that they did before the accident. If you are injured when you are walking or biking, you need to consider your options quickly.

How bicyclists and pedestrians can avoid being hit by trucks

Unlike motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists are much smaller, have a narrower profile and lack a protective shell around them. They also can only move so fast. It's because of this that they are at much higher risk of injury or death if they come too close to a big, bulky and heavy truck.

Pedestrian injuries are a horrid ordeal after a car crash

Pedestrians shouldn't have to worry about their safety just because they need to walk around town. Instead, drivers should make sure that they aren't doing things that put people who are walking at risk. We understand that you might not have any option except walking, which makes you suffering an injury such a horrid ordeal.

Don't wait too long to seek compensation after the accident

Safety is key when pedestrians and drivers are sharing the same space. When drivers are moving around the Stamford area, they need to exercise extreme caution to make sure that they don't slam into an innocent person. We understand that everyone is in a rush to get to their destination; however, this can't trump safety.

Pedestrians and drivers should use proper safety techniques

Pedestrians and drivers need to take steps to make sure that the people who are walking around can remain safe throughout their journey. When either party has a few too many drinks or acts in an unsafe manner, there is a chance that someone is going to get hurt -- more than likely this person will be the pedestrian.

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.
