When any form of transportation, be it a vehicle or bicycle, collides with a pedestrian, serious and life-threatening injuries may occur. The Los Angeles Times recently reported that pedestrians were involved in 1 in 10 accidents on our roads, but pedestrian deaths accounted for more than 35% of the total number of deaths. Many of these accidents are caused by negligent drivers who should be held responsible for their actions.

Liability in Pedestrian Cases

In pedestrian accidents, the liability often rests with the drivers, but pedestrians may be at fault in some cases. This may include situations in which a pedestrian walks against the red light, fails to cross at a legal crosswalk, or steps in front of a vehicle that cannot stop safely before hitting the pedestrian. In other cases, however, it is driver negligence that causes these traumatic accidents.

Some of the most common pedestrian accidents are caused by:

  • Drivers making left hand turns fail to see pedestrians through traffic
  • Drivers making right hand turns forget to look at the crosswalk
  • Distracted driving including texting, eating or changing the radio
  • Alcohol or drug abuse slows reaction time for drivers

If you have been hit by a motorist, the first thing you should do is see a medical professional. Following that, speak with a Riverside personal injury attorney like those at The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates. If you were crossing the street legally, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim. The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates can fight for you as you work to recover from your traumatic accident.
