Pedestrian Vehicle Collisions
Every time a pedestrian crosses the street, they are relying on the drivers around them to stay safe. It only takes a momentary distraction for a driver to strike a pedestrian.

How Do Pedestrians Get in Accidents?
In a lot of cases, motor vehicle driver inattention causes a majority of pedestrian accidents. Drivers simply fail to see a pedestrian in enough time to prevent these kinds of pedestrian accidents. However, since drivers owe a duty of care to those they share the state’s roads with, simply failing to see a pedestrian in time is not an excusable offense. Negligent drivers who hit pedestrians, if found to be the causation of the pedestrian accident, can be ordered by a court to pay monetary compensation to those they injure. You need a professional pedestrian accident attorney to help recover compensation for your injuries. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer and get a free consultation.
Pedestrians & Right of Way
It might surprise you, but it’s actually a myth that pedestrians always have the right of way when they’re crossing a street. Much like cyclists and automobiles, they must obey the rules of the road. These rules include:
- – Obeying traffic lights and signs
- – Obeying a crossing guard’s instructions
- – Crossing the road at a marked crosswalk
- – Use the sidewalk, if one is available, rather than walking down the street
- – Avoid walking near roads while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
If a pedestrian accident occurs, and the pedestrian involved was ignoring or violating these rules, they may have a more difficult time getting compensated for their accident. That’s why a pedestrian accident lawyer is crucial—our team of accident lawyers know these rules forwards and backwards, and can help you find out if you have a claim or not.
