FAQ: Pedestrian Accidents

Question #1: Do pedestrians have a legal duty to avoid accidents?

A: Like drivers, all pedestrians have to obey all traffic laws and pay close attention to the traffic conditions around them. In general, pedestrians should not enter a street or roadway if there are approaching vehicles.

Question #2: What types of damages can be recovered in pedestrian accidents?

A: Pedestrian who suffers injuries caused by negligent drivers can recover damages for:

  • Past & future medical expenses
  • Past & future wage loss
  • Past & future pain and suffering

 

Question #3: Can a pedestrian still be compensated if they were partially at fault for the accident?

A: Depending on the circumstances, a pedestrian can still recover compensation if they are found to be partially at fault. However, the compensation amount would be less than if they weren’t at fault.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

  • Left-Hand Turns: Pedestrians using crosswalks at intersections are vulnerable to being shit by negligent or distracted drivers making left-hand turns. Drivers who are occupied looking at cars driving through the intersection sometimes fail to see pedestrians crossing the street.
  • Electronic Distractions: From texting to changing the radio station, pedestrian accidents often happen when drivers are distracted by electronic devices while they are operating in the vehicle.
  • Improper Lane Use: Cyclists who ride through sidewalks and walkways sometimes collide with pedestrians or force them into oncoming traffic.
