COMMON CAUSES OF PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
A pedestrian accident accounts for when a pedestrian is damaged due to someone else's negligence. While being hit by a car is the most common example, the definition is not limited to these instances. Mismanaged property or even an unsafe sidewalk can make a party liable for pedestrian injury damages.
Pedestrian Injuries can be caused by some of the following:
- Drunk driving
- Speeding cars
- Failure to put up cautionary signs in dangerous areas
- Failure to fence off of dangerous areas
- Poor road and sidewalk maintenance
- Disobeying traffic signals and yield signs
When you experience a pedestrian accident, it is important to ensure that a police report is filed, especially if you suffered severe injuries. If you are able, get the phone numbers of any witnesses and request that they keep any photographs or videos they may have taken. Preserving this evidence can be crucial for your claim later on.
