Wisconsin Pedestrian Accidents
Though pedestrian crashes are not the most common accidents that occur in Wisconsin, they still happen several times per year due to reckless driving. This is because, now more than ever, more people are choosing to walk or ride bikes from one place to another instead of driving. In 2021, statistics gathered concerning pedestrian crashes in Wisconsin showed that 54 pedestrians were killed in fatal crashes, and hundreds more were injured. Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable travelers on the road due to having no protection against the force of fast-moving, heavy vehicles, which means that they are more likely to be injured or killed in road accidents than other individuals involved. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian collision, it is vital that you seek help from a lawyer who you can trust.
