Typically when you think of an automobile accident you think of two or more vehicles colliding together. However, this isn’t always the case as there are more than just motorized vehicles on the roads across the Akron, Ohio area.
Over the years Ohio has made an effort to be more pedestrian friendly by adding:
• Bike lanes
• Side walks
• Cross walks
Our state’s effort to become more bike and pedestrian friendly has come with some negative side effects. Even though it is everyone’s responsibility to behave legally and safely while on the road this doesn’t always happen. As a result our personal injury attorney has seen an increase in pedestrian auto accident claims.
A collision between a motorized vehicle and a pedestrian can be very serious. Pedestrians have no protection, so when hit with a vehicle their injuries can be very severe. Call our Akron, Ohio office today to schedule your FREE consultation!
