Pedestrians At Risk

The Louisville Courier Journal reports on the disturbing results reached in a report by the Transportation for America and Surface Transportation Policy Project.  The report ranked the 13 county Louisville and Southern Indiana area seventh most dangerous for walking.  The report concluded that the most dangerous areas are dominated by sprawling suburban developments that favor automobiles.

While many of the articles contributors considered the report concerning, there apparently wasn’t any agreement on what to do about it.  You can read the entire article discussing Louisville pedestrian injuries and deaths here.

Remember if you’ve been injured as a pedestrian as the result of a car, motorcycle, or truck accident you are entitled to the same rights of recovery as someone injured while driving a car.  Often, these injuries are more severe, since they lack the protection afforded by a car.  These injuries are often permanent and debilitating, requiring lengthy and expensive medical treatment.  You should seek the services of a qualified Kentucky accident attorney if you are a pedestrian struck by a car, motorcycle or truck to make sure your rights to recover for serious personal injury are protected.
