Inadequate Street Lights and Other Hazards Can Cause Accidents

Categories: General

This week a Missouri woman was hit by a car and killed just a block from her home and area residents blame inadequate street lighting. A Tampa woman was killed by a tanker truck after her car spun off the road. Witnesses say she had ventured to the side of the highway, presumably to flag down help when she was struck and killed. That accident occurred at 3 a.m. today. And yesterday, a 13-year old boy was killed on his bicycle when a truck turning into a gas station in Fairbanks, Alaska, failed to see him crossing the entrance path.

As these examples show,fatal accidents occur under a variety of different circumstances. No matter how careful you think you are, there is always the chance for something unexpected to occur. In those instances, it is important that you know how to find a good attorney.
