Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accident ClaimsPedestrian accidents occur when someone is struck by a motor vehicle.  This often occurs when someone is crossing the street, walking across a parking lot, or jogging on roads.  The driver has a duty to be on the lookout for pedestrians and other motorists.  Pedestrians have a duty to obey the traffic laws for crossing streets and to keep a watch out for automobiles traveling around them.  If the pedestrian darts out into traffic for example, then the driver is normally not liable.  If the driver strikes the pedestrian in the cross walks for example, then the driver is usually ticketed and liable for a personal injury or wrongful death claim.  The facts of each pedestrian accident must be carefully reviewed and the accident investigated to determine if a valid pedestrian accident injury claim or wrongful death claim arises.
