The accident occurred at 9:15 pm on Friday, March 22 near Highway 50 and Club Manor Drive. The victim was wheelchair bound and was attempting to cross the street when they were hit by a vehicle. No details have been released following the fatal accident.

Unfortunately, accidents like this occur in Pueblo and across the United States each year. In 2016 alone, 5,987 pedestrians were killed in motor vehicle crashes across the United States according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This accounts for 16% of all traffic fatalities and was a 9% increase from 2015. Pedestrians are often vulnerable on the roads, especially during the evening hours when visibility is limited.

Pedestrians Need Experienced & Aggressive Legal Assistance

Pedestrian accidents are unlike other accidents. They’re often catastrophic and result in lifelong injuries and disabilities. In many cases, the at-fault driver even flees the scene of the crash, further complicating the situation. When this occurs, pedestrian accident victims need someone they can trust in this dark hour.

A pedestrian accident attorney can help you get the money you need to pay for damages and injuries after a crash, including:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Rehabilitation
  • Long-term care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of lifestyle
  • Pain and suffering

Pedestrian accident injuries are often complicated and can result in months or even years of surgeries, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation. Accident victims may not ever fully recover, putting more financial stress on their families as they are unable to work or provide for their family in the same ways. During this time, insurance companies will be trying to reduce your claim and pay you as little as possible. Your attorney, however, will be in your corner throughout the legal process, ensuring that your rights are protected and safeguarding your future.
