Pedestrian killed while crossing street in Durham

Many people in the Cary area enjoy walking. Most of the time pedestrians are safe on our streets, but, occasionally, a fatal accident occurs.

Recently, a woman was killed as she crossed the street near a Durham elementary school. The woman was crossing Fayetteville Street around 6:30 in the morning near W.G. Pearson Elementary School. She was struck by a Chevrolet Tahoe. Medical emergency workers attempted to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one expects their loved one will die in an accident. These are tragic events that can turn a family upside down. Besides the traumatic event of losing a loved one, a family may be faced with unexpected medical and funeral expenses. If a family has been affected by a tragic accident, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help the family get answers as to what happened to cause the accident.

An attorney understands that a family is going through the worst time of their lives and will put their client's interests first. If the accident was caused by negligence, an attorney will build the strongest case possible to recover compensation that may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Nothing can prepare a family for the death of their loved one. While nothing can ease the pain of losing a loved one, compensation can help a family rebuild their lives that have been changed forever.
