Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
- Motor vehicle fails to yield the right of way
- Distracted driving (texting or other cell phone use, etc)
- Other failure to obey traffic signs and signals
- Pedestrian Jaywalking or Out of Crosswalk
Out of Crosswalk or Jaywalking Accidents
A driver at fault for failing to exercise reasonable care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian who is jaywalking or not in a marked crosswalk cannot escape sharing responsibility for damages caused by the collision. For example, a child playing in a neighborhood street can still recover damages for injuries she suffers if she is hit by a car driven by a driver who would have been able to avoid colliding with the child had the driver not been intoxicated or had not been texting or otherwise distracted.
