Everyone knows that pedestrian-car collisions can have very serious consequences. Drivers need to remember that they are operating heavy equipment that can cause severe injury or death if improperly handled. If drivers fail to exercise due caution in some way or another, such as by texting while driving, then the driver may be held liable for damages, including injury or wrongful death.
Personal injury attorneys often handle wrongful death and injury cases whenever fatal car accidents occur. Those injured in a car accident, or the family of those killed in one, can seek compensation for injuries and loss of life, as well as for damage to vehicles and other property.
