Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Kentucky
Over 5,900 victims lose their lives in pedestrian accidents across the United States every year. Around 100 of these victims pass away after being harmed in crashes here in the state of Kentucky. Although our state has taken several steps toward protecting pedestrians who travel along our roadways, we continue to see them harmed at an alarming rate.
Dealing with the unexpected loss of a loved one is not something that we are able to prepare for. When victims lose their lives in pedestrian crashes, they often leave behind families who are forced to endure the overwhelming mental and financial consequences. Many families phase tens of thousands of dollars on funeral costs and other end-of-life arrangements.
Quite often, families are deprived of a source of income that they have grown to depend upon. When victims lose their lives in auto-pedestrian accidents, it is crucial that their families reach out to a wrongful death lawyer in Central City as soon as possible. Families may have legal options available to help them secure the financial compensation that they need to cover these and other expenses they face moving forward.
