Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Washington
Whether you live in the city or out in the country, you'll occasionally have to share the road with pedestrians, and drivers on Seattle's roads have a duty to all road users, including pedestrians. As a pedestrian, you have legal rights. Vehicles continue to play a part in the high number of pedestrian deaths, despite the fact that walkers have the same right to the road as any other motorist.
Many Tacoma residents choose to walk for a variety of reasons, but statistics show that this is not necessarily the safest mode of transportation. Despite a decline in passenger car deaths throughout the country, pedestrian deaths continue to increase year after year.
People have an innate urge to grieve after a devastating event, and filing a lawsuit is typically the last thing on their minds.
