Pedestrian accidents can be especially devastating. The lack of protection during an accident means that pedestrians are more likely to suffer severe injuries. If you find yourself dealing with this type of situation, it is imperative that you seek legal representation from a dedicated Hudson pedestrian accident lawyer right away. Given the fact that the Ohio Department of Transportation deletes video footage within 72 hours, and commercial businesses remove footage in even less time, it is vital to take legal action as soon as possible.
