Pedestrian Accidents in Pennsylvania
Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads due to the fact that they have no protection from harm when up against passenger vehicles. This means that, in the event of an accident, a pedestrian is most likely to become catastrophically injured or even killed. In just one recent year, in fact, approximately 166 people lost their lives as a result of pedestrian accidents within the state of Pennsylvania. Being injured in a pedestrian accident can impact your life in many ways, which is why you should have a legal advocate on your side.
