What Causes Car vs. Pedestrian Accidents?
There may be numerous causes for an accident between a car and a pedestrian to occur. Driver distraction is the most common cause of traffic accidents in general, but negligence on the part of a pedestrian may also be to blame. Crosswalks and stoplights or stop signs are in place to control traffic and also to protect pedestrians at intersections. If a pedestrian is jaywalking or otherwise crosses a street illegally and directly in the path of a car, this may mean that the driver of the car should not be held accountable. By conducting a complete investigation into the circumstances that caused the accident you or a loved one was involved in, a skilled attorney can work to build a compelling case that limits or eliminates your potential liability.
