Pedestrian Accidents and Personal Injury Attorneys
When crossing a road, remain on crosswalk whenever possible. If there is no crosswalk, walk on the shoulder and do your best to make sure cars can easily see you. By obeying traffic laws and being cautious of the conditions of the road, you can help prevent an unforeseen accident and keep yourself and others safe.
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
