Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Santa Rosa

When the weather is nice, many people choose to walk to work, down the street for coffee, or just to enjoy the outdoors. However, many fail to notice the potential dangers of walking in areas with heavy traffic. Due to the small size of pedestrians in comparison to vehicles, it is important that pedestrians consider their surroundings at all times to avoid life-changing accidents. On average, roughly 60,000 Americans are harmed in pedestrian accidents every year. Sadly, an additional 5,000 die due to these kinds of accidents.

If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident and are facing personal injuries as a result, it is important to seek experienced legal help right away. A seasoned pedestrian accident lawyer may be able to help you recover financial compensation for the following:

HOW PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS OCCUR

The majority of all pedestrian accidents are avoidable. However, many motorists fail to see pedestrians for various reasons. This leaves pedestrians at extreme risk for severe harm and even death. Below are some of the most common ways pedestrian accidents occur.

  • Drivers fail to check for pedestrians before entering crosswalk perimeters
  • Drivers pass through intersections at high speeds, keeping them from reacting soon enough if pedestrians are crossing
  • Drivers turn corners without noticing pedestrians who may have just stepped off the sidewalk
  • Drivers fail to yield for pedestrians in parking lots
  • Drivers fail to stop at red lights when turning right before looking for pedestrians waiting to cross the street

In most pedestrian accident cases, pedestrians have the right away and are hit when drivers participate in activities that distract their attention from the road. Unfortunately, these accidents commonly result in detrimental injuries to the individual walking, and may lead to brain injuries, spine injuries, and more.
