Pedestrian Injury

Layton Law Protects Pedestrians

As part of our 2019 campaign to protect pedestrians, we are giving away our “Layton Law Protects Pedestrians – SLOW DOWN” yard signs. In our personal injury practice, we are surrounded by injured individuals. When the injury is a pedestrian injury, the injuries are quite dramatic. If a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle there is of course a significant chance they may never recover. These are heartbreaking cases, especially when the pedestrian is a Minor. As a parent of young children, I am fearful every day that a careless driver will injure my children or other children in our neighborhood.

Prevention Is The Goal

According to www.watchformenc.org, roughly 3,000 pedestrians and 850 bicyclists are hit each year in NC. When a pedestrian is injured, we are there to help protect their rights. However, a much better solution would be to play a role in preventing pedestrian injuries in Charlotte. Our yard signs have that goal in mind. We’ve seen numerous yard signs in the past encouraging drivers to Drive Like Your Kids Live Here. We love those signs! However, some careless drivers remain undeterred. Our signs are meant to remind them there are serious consequences awaiting drivers who hit pedestrians. Our hope is that we are able to get the attention of more drivers by delivering this slightly different message.

The Yard Signs Are Free

We are making these yard signs free to anyone who would like one. The more of these signs we are able to get into view throughout the city, the better. If you or any of your neighbors would like a Layton Law Protects Pedestrians yard sign, simply click HERE to send us a request. Just tell us you’d like a sign and we will arrange to have one at the office for you for pickup.

How Can You Help?

First, by simply placing the sign in your yard, we believe you’re raising driver awareness. Second, if you like the law firm’s pedestrian safety campaign and want to encourage more efforts, simply leave us a Google Review letting us know. Lastly, share this post on social media within Charlotte so others will know the signs are available. Sometimes the encouragement from others in the community helps to keep the momentum rolling.
