As a pedestrian, you may assume that you are safe from harm when you are walking along a sidewalk or crossing the street within a legal intersection. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Pedestrians can be hit by bicyclists, motorcycles, trucks, or even vehicles while on the sidewalk, and there are numerous crosswalk accidents each year.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
While few pedestrian accidents are often the result of the result of a reckless or negligent pedestrian who failed to follow the rules of the road, many are also the result of negligent and reckless drivers.
Pedestrian accidents are commonly caused by:
- Failure to stop behind a crosswalk
- Failing to yield to pedestrians
- Unsafe left hand turns
- Running red lights
- Texting while driving or distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Ignoring traffic signals
