Virginia has seen a steady rise in pedestrian deaths over the last ten years. More oversized motor vehicles crowd the roads, drivers are more distracted than ever with smartphones, and there are simply more people walking. According to the data;
The Department of Traffic Safety states that 94% of accidents are due to human error. Leah Shahum, director of the Vision Zero Network, believes fatalities should be about more than the percentages. She believes that it detracts from making improvements to save pedestrian lives by improving infrastructure. Shahum states, “We need to debunk the 94 percent myth because it detracts the focus from the actual risk factors that are most deadly, such as poorly designed roads and dangerously high-speed limits. This myth keeps communities from implementing effective policy and design solutions.”
Many people want to assume that insurance companies will cover everything and do not seek representation. That is a costly mistake. Insurance companies are not here to make sure your medical bills are paid, that you have food on the table, and that a severe accident does not ruin your family. They have a bottom line and will do everything in their power to pay you as little as possible or nothing at all.
If you are hit by a car and too injured to work, would you accept less than you deserve?
Insurance companies will try to place as much liability for the accident on you as they can. Were you jaywalking? Were you reading a text from your wife or an email for work on your phone? Did you look both ways when you crossed the road?
