A police officer in Nashville, Tennessee was injured after being struck in a
hit-and-run accident. Police reported that the accident happened early morning after officers
were patrolling in an unmarked car. They got out to investigate a car
that was backed up to an apartment when the driver hit an officer in the
leg. The driver also hit the police car and a nearby car before leaving
the scene. The officer was transported to a local hospital where he is
expected to make a full recovery from the injuries he sustained in the accident.
Pedestrian safety is a huge concern in many communities and cities across
the United States. Each year there are nearly 65,000 pedestrian injuries
sustained by people that are walking, biking, and running. It is imperative
to abide by all crosswalks, signs, and signals when utilizing bike paths,
crosswalks, sidewalks, and roadways. Often, pedestrian accidents can be
avoided if pedestrians and drivers are alert and paying attention to their
surroundings. However, these accidents do occur and sometimes can leave
pedestrians with large medical bills and life-altering injuries. These
accidents can also be stressful for victims and their families because
they will be responsible for these large costs. An attorney will be available
to answer any questions or concerns you have, and if you were injured,
an attorney could determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action.
