According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, approximately 6,227 pedestrians were killed in the U.S. back in 2018, a 250 increase from the previous year. 

Hiring a capable attorney to represent you is highly recommended. Attorneys have the resources that can help them prove the negligence of the liable party. They can utilize their resources to re-interview important witnesses, review relevant surveillance footage from the scene, and obtain phone and texting records of the responsible party.
