Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Drivers have a duty of care to everyone else on the road – including pedestrians! There are many causes for pedestrian accidents. If a driver drove while distracted (such as texting), failed to yield to a pedestrian in accordance with law, disregarded a traffic light or sign, exceeded the speed limit, drove under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, or otherwise operated the vehicle in a reckless or negligent manner and then struck you, the driver is likely to be found liable for causing your injuries.
