Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are one of the most serious types of collisions due to the vulnerability of a person who does not have protection against the weight and speed of a vehicle. Whether you were struck by a car, truck, or bus, your injuries may be severe and even catastrophic. These accidents are also one of the leading motor vehicle-related causes of wrongful death.

A few of the most common causes of these accidents include:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Drivers under the influence of drugs
  • Distracted drivers
  • Speeding
  • Violation of traffic laws
  • Using a cell phone
  • Lack of road signs
  • Failing to yield

How to Prove Fault for a Car Pedestrian Accident

A pedestrian can be at fault for a car pedestrian accident since they are also required to follow certain laws when crossing the street. Some of the most common scenarios of when a pedestrian can be found at fault for an accident are:

  • A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
  • A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
  • A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed

    I thought that I was taken care of as if I was a friend and not by someone I had never even met. Whenever I was feeling down and things just felt like they couldn't have been worse that day, I could always email Tom and he was always there to help me through whatever I was going through....and I had a lot of hard days emotionally for me. I am so blessed that they were representing me through all this. I feel like things turned out the best that they could of for me in total. I would suggest that anyone needing representation after being hurt in an accident use their firm. I thank GOD that they were the ones there for me after the accident.
