Nashville Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
With Nashville’s bustling businesses and active tourist industry, pedestrian accidents are a more common occurrence than anyone would like. Famous thoroughfares like Broadway and 16th Avenue might be top destinations for country music fans, but high traffic and tourists unfamiliar with the terrain can make it dangerous.
And without the protection of an automobile, pedestrian accidents are often fatal.
According to the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security, in 2019, the state of Tennessee recorded 1,734 pedestrian accidents. This figure includes skateboarders, roller skaters, and other non-motorists. Davidson County accounted for 454 of those accidents, second only to Shelby County with 495. That same year saw 72 fatalities statewide, and as of July, Tennessee has already tied that number.
