Texting, driving, and preventable pedestrian accidents

Smart phones have become an indispensable part of Minnesota residents' lives. They have become so pervasive that law enforcement officials across the state have to be on the lookout for drivers who use their handheld devices while operating their motor vehicles. Texting and driving is a dangerous practice because it takes a driver's eyes off the road. When drivers divert their attention from the road, they could hit a pedestrian crossing the street or walking along the road.

Pedestrian accidents are often devastating because pedestrians have few protections to keep them safe. The impact of a car and the trauma of being thrown to the ground can cause a victim to incur serious physical harm, emotional distress, and other serious damages.

The attorneys of Walsh & Gaertner hope that readers of this blog never experience the pain of a pedestrian accident or other incident caused by a distracted driver. If they do, however, they should know that our firm is prepared to support them as they work toward becoming whole again.

Litigation can serve the needs of pedestrian accident victims who have experienced financial and other losses because of their involvement in a collision. The law firm of Walsh & Gaertner has experience working with clients of different needs and has counseled them through the legal decisions that they have had to make to protect their interests. Readers are invited to contact the firm for more information or they can visit us online through our web page on pedestrian accidents.
