Murfreesboro, Tennessee Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Murfreesboro and Rutherford County Pedestrian Accident Attorneysmurfreesboro pedestrian accident

In the United States, a pedestrian is injured every eight minutes and a pedestrian is killed every 2 hours. In Murfreesboro and across Rutherford County, while there has been a little bit of ebb and flow in the numbers, the clear pattern is that pedestrian accidents are on the rise.  Below is the data since 2010:

2010 - 29 pedestrian accidents

2011 - 31 pedestrian accidents

2012 - 25 pedestrian accidents

2013 - 26 pedestrian accidents

2014 - 35 pedestrian accidents

2015 - 44 pedestrian accidents

2016 - 49 pedestrian accidents

2017 - 52 pedestrian accidents

2018 - 42 pedestrian accidents

2019 - 51 pedestrian accidents

Importantly, these numbers for Rutherford County do not include accidents occurring in parking lots, and parking lots are a large source of pedestrian accidents. Most motorists in a parking lot will become a pedestrian when they leave their vehicle to enter or exit the store, and drivers are often distracted looking for a parking spot, a particular store, etc.

Act Quickly To Protect Your Rights

If you have a potential pedestrian accident case in Murfreesboro or anywhere in the State of Tennessee, we urge you to act quickly. First, Tennessee law only allows you a limited time to pursue your rights or they are lost forever. For more information on the deadlines for filing a lawsuit in Tennessee, click here. Second, valuable evidence can be lost with the passage of time. For instance, in a pedestrian accident case in a parking lot, the store may have video footage of the accident on their security cameras. But, these cameras are often on a loop so they are overwritten after a set period of time which can often be just days. In addition, documents can be lost, the vehicle involved in the wreck may be repaired, witnesses’ memories may dim – so it is important to have an attorney gathering this evidence for you very soon after the accident. Third, the sooner you get started the sooner you can get the compensation you deserve.
