The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 5,376 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in 2015. On average, a pedestrian is killed in a traffic collision every 108 seconds. An additional 70,000 pedestrians were injured in that same year.
Since cars and trucks can strike pedestrians in many different situations, the collision can be difficult to evaluate without the help of an experienced lawyer. The simple truth is, some pedestrians may be a little bit at fault for the circumstances surrounding the crash. But that is OK, because the driver of an car may bear a greater portion of responsibility for the collision often because the consequences of the driver’s fault creates a greater potential for harm to all of us.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported in 2015 that Tractor Trailer collisions caused 3,400 deaths and 86,000 injuries. Due to a tractor trailer’s massive size and weight, anything they collide with does not stand much of a chance of being unharmed. The size, weight, and momentum of a moving tractor trailer truck make truck collisions almost always catastrophic.
Tractor trailer and large truck collision cases can be more complex than car collision cases. If you or a loved one is hurt or killed in a truck collision, you need an experienced truck collision attorney who has both the knowledge and resources necessary to fight to get you the compensation and justice you deserve.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,976 motorcyclists were killed and 88,000 were injured in motorcycle crashes in the United States in 2015. These statistics should not discourage you from seeking the thrill of the open road on a motorcycle. Riding a motorcycle can provide a sense of freedom and exhilaration unlike other vehicles. It is dirt simple: the lack of protection between the motorcycle rider and fellow drivers increases the risk of catastrophic injury and death.
