Zydeco, left turns and other causes of pedestrian accidents

It was a busy traffic day as you walked down the street intending to meet an old friend for lunch. You were listening to some great Zydeco music as you stepped onto a crosswalk and never heard the car that was coming around the corner. Fortunately, you survived but sustained multiple injuries. You would think walking is a relatively safe activity, but you are among tens of thousands of pedestrians across the country injured every year. So what are the major contributors to these accidents?

Why having a lawyer handle your accident claim is so important

Even if you have sustained only minor injuries in a car crash, it is a good idea to contact a personal injury attorney. You could file a claim against an insurance company yourself, but big companies have big legal teams, and you would likely face an uphill battle. Some insurance companies might deny your claim or, at the very least, offer extremely low compensation with a take-it-or-leave-it sort of attitude.

Has a maritime accident left you adrift?

Accidents happen in every mode of travel, but the public hears more about those connected with planes, trains and automobiles than they do about accidents involving ships, barges or oil rigs. People who make a living on oceans, rivers or inland waterways are often in harm's way, even though they are aware of the dangers and committed to safety. Sailors, seamen and ship workers have rights that are protected by maritime law, but they sometimes require legal advice and representation.
