Where Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?
Not every motor vehicle collision with a pedestrian is grounds for an injury suit. For example, if a pedestrian suddenly dashes out into traffic and is harmed, the motorist involved likely cannot be held legally responsible. The motorist must display negligence on the road—or anywhere where traffic and pedestrians coexist—for there to be grounds for legal action.
Pedestrian accidents involving motorist negligence usually occur at:
- Crosswalks and intersections
- Curbside (or road shoulder)
- Bus stops
- Parking lots (and parking structures)
- Gas stations
- Driveways intersecting sidewalks
In these places, pedestrians often have the right of way and drivers are expected to display heightened vigilance to avoid harming anyone.
If you have been hurt in one of these areas, or any other where a motorist acted irresponsibly, then we invite you to contact us today. We are ready to hear your story and, if necessary, begin thoroughly pursing a claim for your pain and suffering.
