Charlotte Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents are some of the deadliest accidents that happen on our roadways. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have very few protections on our roadways, which makes them more susceptible to horrific accidents.

It can be difficult to determine where you can turn following a pedestrian accident. If your loved one has lost their life, you have a right to bring a wrongful death claim, which can help you receive compensation for a variety of aspects while you are grieving and also struggling to meet certain financial needs.
