Electric Cars Can Increase Pedestrian Injuries
Victims of electric car accidents don't have to suffer alone. Attorneys from Strong Law can help clients find justice and earn the financial compensation they deserve.
EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 20, 2022 -- Car accidents are already looming threats for drivers and passengers everywhere. The last people that should have to worry about being harmed by a vehicle are innocent pedestrians, yet they may find themselves in danger with certain electric cars when they are released onto the market without extensive testing.
One need look no further than Tesla, one of the largest and most popular producers of electric vehicles, to see that driver-assisted technology was reportedly responsible for almost 400 crashes in the last year alone. Crashes like these can affect pedestrians as well as riders. Without the protection of seatbelts, airbags or windshields, pedestrians can suffer much more serious injuries or even death in these incidents.
"Washington is a tort state, meaning that the driver that caused the accident pays for any injuries or deaths they caused," says Jed Strong of Strong Law. "We ensure guilty parties face the consequences of their actions so their victims can have peace of mind."
The law can become muddled when driver-assisted technology fails and when elements — such as intoxication while driving — complicate accident cases. The deadly combination of electric cars and impaired driving has already claimed lives, and without proper representation, cases like these can go unnoticed and unresolved. If electric cars can increase pedestrian injuries, pedestrians need to have unfettered access to attorneys that will fight for their rights.
In anticipation of increased accidents due to careless drivers and/or electric car malfunctions, the attorneys at Strong Law have stepped upefforts to spread awareness of accident victims' rights.
"Whether the accident involved an electric or gas-powered car, we're there to help our clients figure out what they're entitled to," states Strong.
