Dallas, TX / January 29, 2019 / — Herbert Law Group, a boutique personal injury law firm located in Richardson, Texas, has released a new article to their blog regarding the alarming rate of pedestrian accidents and the rise of deaths from these accidents. Herbert Law Group is committed to raising awareness of the dangers for pedestrians and making the roadways a safer place for everyone that uses them.
“Most people are aware of how to interact safely with other vehicles on the road, but our responsibility to be aware and exercise caution needs to also extend to pedestrians,” stated Attorney Zach Herbert, founder of Herbert Law Group. “The number of pedestrian fatalities has steadily increased in recent years. As a voice in the community, it’s important that we do our part to raise awareness of this disturbing trend, and do what we can to keep everyone that share the roads as safe as possible.”
There are multiple theories as to why the rate of pedestrian accidents and fatalities have increased in contrast to the number of other roadway fatalities. These theories cite a range of contributing factors, including higher speed limits, distracted drivers and a general preference for larger vehicles. The rise in pedestrian accidents appears to be a nationwide issue, however, the problem is of significant concern for urban and metropolitan areas that see a higher amount of foot traffic.
“As a personal injury law firm serving the greater Dallas area, we’ve witnessed first-hand the devastating after-effects of all types of accidents, including those that involve pedestrians,” Herbert added. “According to the GHSA’s Spotlight on Highway Safety, the proportion of traffic fatalities that involve pedestrian traffic is higher than it has been at any point in the last 33 years. This is a serious issue and our goal is to do what we can to raise awareness so that hopefully we’ll see fewer incidents involving pedestrians in the future.”
Pedestrian accidents are on the rise and we all have a role in protecting ourselves and the other people on the road. If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident or you would like to know more about what’s behind the increase in incidents, the experienced attorney at Herbert Law Group invites you to visit their blog to learn more.
