According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the city of Memphis, Tennessee, plans to increase pedestrian safety on Central Avenue near the University of Memphis campus. The effort is part of a $3.3 million dollar safety improvement project. City officials recognize the dangers of a campus that is â€śseparated from the main student parking lot by a busy five-lane street.â€ť Since 1995, two pedestrians have been killed and a third was severely injured in motor vehicle accidents on Central Avenue near campus. This project includes constructing a new median, creating a new parking lot entrance, and closing the fence between the parking lot and Central Avenue to push foot traffic towards safer crosswalks.

Corey B. Trotz and fellow NST lawyers have extensive experience developing the damages portion of personal injury claims. An accident victim may face complex and expensive medical costs following the crash, including an overnight stay at a hospital, surgeries, and CT scans. Victims may also require future medical care, including physical therapy. NST Law can retain medical experts to document medical bills and project the medical care a victim could later need. Next, an accident may force a victim to miss work or render her unable to adequately perform her position. To prove these damages, NST Law can consult with a vocational economist who can document a victimâ€™s lost wages and compute her diminished earning capacity. Finally, pedestrian accidents can cause emotional stress and anguish. To prove the extent of a victimâ€™s pain and suffering, NST Law can retain psychologists and other similarly trained experts.
