Where Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen Fairfield County?
Serious accidents can happen any time pedestrians and vehicles share the road with one another. However, just as some causes of pedestrian accidents are more common than others, some Fairfield County roadways are more dangerous to pedestrians than others.
According to a 2014 report released by the National Complete Streets Coalition, Fairfield County was ranked third in Connecticut behind Hartford and New Haven Counties in pedestrian deaths. Fairfield County is the deadliest county in the state in terms of people killed while walking along major roadways, according to the report.
Attorney Jeremy Vishno, a Fairfield County pedestrian accident lawyer, understands that Washington Avenue and Bedford Street in Stamford have proven to be particularly dangerous to pedestrians. School pickup and drop-off locations in Norwalk pose a serious danger to children. Route 1 in Bridgeport, which includes North Avenue and Boston Avenue, has a history of fatal pedestrian-vehicle accidents. Attorney Vishno handles all types of complex wrongful death claims, including those involving pedestrians.
