Motor vehicle operators have an obligation to exercise reasonable care when sharing the roadways with pedestrians. If a driver is negligent or reckless causing injury to you or a family member, you may be entitled to compensation, including monies for medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages.
There are thousands of accidents every year involving pedestrians. Obviously a person is no match for an automobile so the injuries often involve broken or fractured bones, head injuries, back and neck injuries and unfortunately, even death.
The causes of pedestrian accidents are usually as a result:
- A driver failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk
- Backing up without looking and hitting a person
- Turning right on a red light without looking
- Speeding through residential areas where
- children are playing.
