Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5,000 pedestrians die in motor vehicle accidents each year, with tens of thousands more being treated for injuries due to being hit by a car or truck.
While the causes of these accidents are about as varied as their effects, in most cases, these collisions can be traced back to some type of driver negligence.
Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting while driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Failing to yield right of way
- Ignoring red lights and stop signs
Depending on the circumstances, there may be multiple parties liable for your injuries, including the driver of the vehicle that hit you or even the party responsible for maintaining the sidewalk, road, or parking lot where your accident occurred.
Even if you are believed to be partially be at fault for your accident, there is still a large possibility that you may be entitled to some sort of compensation. Our team of pedestrian accident lawyers in Campbell can review the facts surrounding your accident and guide you toward the most appropriate course of legal action.
