Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
If you have been injured by a motor vehicle, a John Bales Attorneys pedestrian accident lawyer can help you understand your legal options.
Several common factors contribute to pedestrian accidents, including:
Failure to Yield at an Intersection or Crosswalk
As a pedestrian, you have the right of way at intersections, driveways, and legal crosswalks. Drivers who do not exercise care at these locations run the risk of endangering or injuring pedestrians.
Reversing into a Pedestrian
Parking lot pedestrian injuries are not uncommon. These accident often occur when a driver backs out of a parking space and is distracted, doesn’t check for pedestrians while reversing, or simply doesn’t see a pedestrian while backing up.
Passing a Vehicle Stopped at a Crosswalk
Some accidents occur when many pedestrians would least expect it—while crossing a legal crosswalk in front of a stopped vehicle. These accidents occur as a result of drivers approaching from behind the stopped vehicle who may not see the pedestrians crossing the street.
