Causes & Consequences of Pedestrian Accidents
A pedestrian accident can leave you with serious or
catastrophic injuries. These injuries can require a lengthy recovery time during which you may
be unable to work and earn the money you need to pay all of your bills.
As an accident victim, you have suffered enough without also having to
suffer the financial consequences of an accident that you did not cause.
Personal injury law exists to protect your rights to pursue compensation for your losses
when you have suffered harm due to another person’s carelessness.
Most pedestrian accidents result when motorists fail in their duty to share
the road, and can involve negligence in the form of:
- Unsafe lane changes
- Driver inattention
- Ignoring stop signs and traffic signals
- Failing to yield
- Driving under the influence
- Driving while fatigued
Pedestrian accidents can also be caused by other factors, including:
- Crumbling pavement
- Lack of sidewalks/crosswalks
- Unsafe intersections
- Debris from nearby construction
