Pedestrian Accidents In Connecticut
The number of pedestrians being injured in automobile accidents across our state continues to rise despite laws and regulations enacted to protect these individuals. Reports from the beginning of 2018 show that over 200 pedestrians were injured in automobile accidents in Connecticut. Instead of improving in numbers, we continue to see victims injured in these horrific incidents throughout our state daily.
Pedestrians who are struck by cars often sustain traumatic brain injuries and other debilitating injuries that cause excruciating pain and drastically limit their ability to function.
