Each Step You Take Could Be Tragic – Avoiding a Roswell Accident

Pedestrians who walk to work or school often have routines they do when they leave their homes in the morning. They may pull on their jackets, tie their shoelaces, and put on their headphones or headsets so they can listen to music or talk with someone as they walk to their destinations.

While we understand that listening to music, an audio book, or catching up with someone on the phone can help make your walk more enjoyable and go by faster, we also know that doing something besides focusing on walking and the moving vehicles around you may be dangerous. When pedestrians participate in distracted walking, such as texting while walking, they may walk themselves right into the pathway of a moving motor vehicle without even realizing it.

In order to reduce your chances of taking a tragic step that could result in a Roswell pedestrian accident, you should avoid:

  • Texting while walking—when you take your eyes off the road, even for a couple of seconds, anything can happen.
  • Talking on the phone—when your mind is on another subject, it may not be focused on getting you to your destination safely.
  • Listening to music or an audio book—the sound coming out of your headphones may drown out the noise of a car horn or screeching tires.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident in Roswell or anywhere throughout Georgia that was not your fault, please call the Law Offices of Shane Smith to find out about your rights to a personal injury claim. For more information, call for a free consultation today at 770-HURT-999.
