In March of this year, an Ohio bus driver was driving her bus and talking on her cell phone when she hit and killed a pedestrian. Bus drivers in Ohio are strictly forbidden from talking on cell phones while they are driving city vehicles.
Shockingly, the bus driver is no stranger to pedestrian accidents because she was fired in 2006 after hitting a pedestrian and causing minor injuries. The victim in this more serious pedestrian accident wasn’t so lucky because he suffered a wrongful death at the scene.
Pedestrian accidents like this are difficult to handle, and the surviving family members deserve to recover compensation from the negligent bus driver who hit their loved one, and possibly the city for employing a person who is known to have caused accidents in the past. An experienced Ohio personal injury attorney can help family members by filing their lawsuit for them while they deal with the loss of their loved one.
If you or someone in your family has been injured or even killed in a pedestrian accident, you could recover compensation for their injuries. Please contact the experienced Columbus, Ohio pedestrian accident lawyer, Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A.
