Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Despite laws that protect pedestrians’ right of way in intersections and driveways, a variety of collisions are caused by motorists:
- Exiting Parking Spaces or Driveways
Drivers have a duty to check their mirrors and rear windows while backing up, and failure to do so can result in serious pedestrian injuries.
- Passing Stopped Traffic at Crosswalks or Intersections
Vehicles yielding the right of way may obstruct other drivers’ views of pedestrians while attempting to pass stopped or slowed traffic.
- Attempting to Beat Red Traffic Lights
Passing through intersections at unsafe speeds makes it difficult for drivers to notice pedestrians trying to cross the street.
Our pedestrian accident attorneys have experience investigating the causes of pedestrian accidents, and we’ll work hard to hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
