Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in South Dakota
Walking on the streets of busy cities can have many advantages and disadvantages. The most obvious advantages include the health benefit and the ability to avoid traffic and sometimes arrive at your destination quicker than if you were to drive a vehicle. The most obvious disadvantage is the risk of a pedestrian accident. Pedestrians have the right of way on the roads; however there are many negligent drivers who are more concerned about their own affairs than the safety of other drivers, or even themselves in many cases.
Busy streets mean more potential for pedestrian accidents. In 2010 there are an estimated 70,000 pedestrian injuries throughout the United States. In the same year there were nearly 4,500 pedestrians who were killed in an accident. There are laws and ordinances in place to help govern traffic and maintain safe roadways for drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and walkers alike, however there are many individuals who will negligently break these laws in order to speed up their travel, or for their own convenience among other reasons.
