Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Connecticut

Addressing Failure to Protect Pedestrians from Foreseeable Risks

In addition to being aware of other drivers on the road, motorists should keep a look out for pedestrians, especially when approaching intersections, commercial areas, and densely populated areas. While accidents with other drivers can cause significant injuries, accidents involving pedestrians can be particularly severe and, often times, fatal. Our attorneys have the knowledge, expertise and resources to investigate and pursue pedestrian accident cases. In many of these circumstances, liability is hotly contested, making it all the more important that you have capable and experienced attorneys working on your behalf.

Accident Risk with Retailers

With drivers more distracted than ever, the frequency of cars colliding with store fronts has increased steadily. Currently, vehicles crash into commercial buildings as many as 20,000 times per year, causing approximately 4,000 serious injuries and 500 deaths annually. Several large retailers experience vehicle strikes on a regular basis including Walgreens, Dunkin’ Donuts, RedBox, Mobil, and 7-11. We’ve learned from our experience that these retailers are well-aware of this epidemic of pedestrian injuries but choose to keep that information from the public. Many companies install bollards to protect their own assets, but neglect to implement the same basic safety measures to protect their customers.

Bollards & Proper Site Design Protect Pedestrians

Proper parking lot and site design can mitigate these risks. Installing pipe bollards in areas of high pedestrian activity is an easy cost-effective way for stores and other businesses to protect their customers from the foreseeable risk of vehicle strikes.

Bollards are often installed in areas that see heavy foot traffic, such as building entrances and exits, and in other areas of buildings that see heightened pedestrian activity. Having several closely installed bollards (no more than 5 feet apart) is essential. When storefronts just have a couple of bollards, spaced apart, it allows the chance for cars to slip in-between bollards and reach buildings or other pedestrian areas.

If you, or someone you know, have been injured in a crash into or nearby a retail location, you may be entitled to financial compensation not only from the driver but from the store or property owner as well. Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Connecticut may be able to help.
