Pedestrian-car accidents still worrisome in Lexington

Drivers and pedestrians know the risks there are on the road and should be cognizant of strategies for everyone to remain safe. Still, pedestrian-car accidents happen quite frequently and they can result in injuries and fatalities. Because pedestrians are devoid of the protections that people in vehicles have, they can suffer broken bones, cuts, spinal cord damage, head trauma and more. Those who have been affected must remember the costs involved with these accidents if there are injuries. When there are fatalities, it is even more important.

Statistically, there was a record number of fatalities in pedestrian-car accidents in Lexington. That is accompanied by a reduction in the number of people who died on area roads overall. Given the rise and the known dangers to pedestrians, law enforcement is seeking to encourage greater vigilance. Using social media, they want people to return to the same safety rules that were taught to people as children. That includes watching where they are going, looking both ways crossing the street and other foundational aspects.

Area law enforcement states that there is no single group of people who are most vulnerable to injuries and death. It can happen to anyone from college students to homeless people. Although people are commonly not paying attention to where they are going, drivers could be distracted, driving at excessive speed or under the influence. A confluence of factors has resulted in the increase in fatalities.

After a pedestrian-car accident, those who have been injured could face months of rehabilitation, surgical procedures, hospitalizations, the need for help to perform basic tasks and have problems returning to work. This can be expensive personally and financially. When there is a fatality, the family left behind must consider the funeral costs, the lost companionship and how to move forward after the unexpected - and unnecessary - death in such a crash. Having legal help from a law firm that handles pedestrian-car accidents is crucial to being adequately compensated.
