PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Published in Video

Crossing the Street

Going for a jog or enjoying a walk around the neighborhood is something many folks do each day. There are many children who cross streets everyday as they head to and from school. It is an activity that we rarely give thought to when it comes to safety as we trust motorist to obey the law and yield to pedestrians. However, the sad fact is that, on average, nearly 5,000 pedestrians are killed in traffic crashes each year and another 76,000 are injured.

Distracted Drivers

Motorists are faced with many more distractions in the car these days. Many drivers are tempted to send a quick text or check social media while driving, believing that it will only take a second. During the short amount of time it takes to type and send a text or check a status, they might miss the crosswalk warning or a stop sign and slam into an innocent person crossing the street. Such an injury causes both physical and emotional damage and can lead to unpaid medical bills, loss of income, and in several cases – the death of a loved one.

Kelly Skinner

“I have always been interested in the law and how it impacts peoples’ lives. My parents will tell you that, as a child, I was always eager to argue my point on anything. I love the fact that attorneys can help people, in so many different areas, who are unable to help themselves. After I started working here with David and Justin, I knew that I had made the right choice in pursuing a career in the legal field. Seeing how they were able to help so many confirmed for me that I wanted to become an attorney.”

“Most people are surprised that I went to law school after getting a degree in theatre. My focus at UCONN was Production and Stage Management. You’d be surprised to know that many of the skills I learned while earning that degree help me every day in my work at Godsey Martin.”
