Pedestrian killed after being hit by car

Pedestrian deaths in motor vehicle accidents, according to a recent study by the Governors Highway Safety Association, rose in the first six months of 2015 by 10 percent nationally. Virginia saw an increase of 9 percent. There were 35 pedestrian deaths in 2014. In 2015, there were 38 pedestrian deaths. According to the GHSA's director, the increase is likely due to distraction. "Any time you go out you see people walking and looking at their phones and you see drivers driving and looking at their phones," he said.

Common injuries suffered in car accidents

Did you know that in 2013, there were 30,000 fatal car accidents? In another 1.6 million accident, someone was injured. The damage and destruction of car accident can be horrifying. Car accidents often cause similar injuries to victims; however, the cost of car accidents is estimated to be an incredible $277 billion each year. That means that each person in the U.S. would have a bill for $897.

Who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit?

When a family member is killed due to the actions of another person, a wrongful death lawsuit might be a possible legal action. There is a limit, though, as to who can bring a wrongful death action against the person who caused someone's death.
