What YOU Need to Know about Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Walkway

Regardless of the established rules and regulations for a pedestrian’s right of way, negligent and inattentive drivers are still hitting people walking or crossing our Southern California streets, causing serious and sometimes catastrophic injury. We have all experienced drivers that fail to acknowledge basic rules of the road when they encounter someone walking across a street.

Why Pedestrian Accidents Occur

In California, pedestrians have certain rights, such as; drivers are required to stop for pedestrians at all crosswalks (whether unmarked or marked). Here are the most common factors involved in pedestrian accidents:

  • Speeding – The faster a vehicle is moving, the more likely there will be of a serious pedestrian injury.
  • Older drivers – Older drivers cause more pedestrian injuries, often because of age-related vision problems.
  • Alcohol – DUI is a major factor in pedestrian accidents
  • Low light conditions – In the evening, more pedestrians are struck than any other time of day, due to lowered visibility.

Injuries Suffered from a Pedestrian Accident

Despite these and other factors involved in pedestrian accidents, too many drivers still attempt to blame the accident on the pedestrian to avoid legal liability. This dishonesty and lack of responsibility is singularity unjust to a pedestrian recovering from injuries like-

  • Severe head trauma
  • Brain damage
  • Leg injuries
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Neck and back injuries
