Not every person who uses roads does so behind the safety of a car wheel. Pedestrians and bicyclists also share the roads, and they have a right to do so safely. Unfortunately, their lives can be put in serious danger when there is a negligent, reckless driver who fails to take seriously their responsibility to watch out for others.
Sadly, tens of thousands of pedestrians are hurt in crashes every year in the U.S., according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association. In this post, we will look at the three types of drivers who often put pedestrians and cyclists in danger.
These types of drivers put everyone on the road in danger. However, because pedestrians and bicyclists have little, if anything, protecting them in the event of a crash, they can more easily be catastrophically injured or killed.
If a driver exhibiting the above-mentioned behaviors has struck you or a loved one in a crash, then you may be eligible to collect compensation for the damages suffered. To learn more about your legal options, it can be critical that you consult an attorney.
