Raleigh, NC Pedestrian Killed by Car

Comments (0)
A fatal traffic accident along New Bern Avenue in Raleigh, North Carolina (NC), killed a 39-year-old man and two dogs around midnight in September 2011. According to NBC17, the accident happened near Neuse River Bridge, close to the Raleigh/Knightdale line. The at-faut driver was allegedly intoxicated when he hit the dog walker. Yet, the 23-year-old driver hadn't consumed enough alcohol to charge him with impairment for the accident.

This North Carolina pedestrian accident illustrated the damage that can occur in a car crash. The pedestrian was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and the unexpected can put someone's life at risk when people drive while intoxicated.

As North Carolina personal injury attorneys, my colleagues and I have assisted the victims of many car accidents. In 2007 we helped two pedestrians struck by a car recover $540,000. Our clients suffered fractures of the right tibia and fibula.
