How do Pedestrians get in Accidents?
In many cases, motor vehicle driver inattention causes a majority of pedestrian accidents. Drivers simply fail to see a pedestrian in enough time to prevent a collision. However, since drivers owe a duty of care to those they share the state’s roads with, simply failing to see a person in time is not an excusable offense. Negligent drivers who hit pedestrians, if found to be the causation of the accident, can be ordered by a court to pay monetary compensation to those they injure.
Pedestrian & Right of Way
It is a myth that pedestrians always have the right of way when crossing a street. Much like cyclists and automobiles, they must obey the rules of the road. this includes:
- – Obeying traffic lights and signs
- – Obeying a crossing guard’s instructions
- – Crossing the road at a marked crosswalk
- – Use the sidewalk, if one is available, rather than walking down the street
- – Avoid walking near roads while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
If an accident occurs while ignoring or violating these rules, you may have a more difficult time getting compensated for your accident.
