The Rising Number of Pedestrian Accidents

Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers said, “Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents, but the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries. Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners.”
