Pedestrian Accidents

When vehicles collide with pedestrians, the consequences can be catastrophic. Pedestrians have no protection or shielding, so they obviously absorb the full impact of the crash. Serious injuries arising from car-versus-pedestrian collisions include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or even death.

A number of factors may contribute to any accident involving a car and a pedestrian. Drivers are obligated to pay attention to the external environment, keeping their eyes on the road and being aware of pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle traffic. If drivers allow themselves to be distracted by cell phones, radios or passengers, accidents will likely occur.

Pedestrian accidents are not solely caused by distracted drivers, though. Improperly lighted or marked crosswalks, overgrown vegetation and broken stoplights can also cause them; in those instances, the municipality responsible for maintenance could be held partially liable. In addition, unsound vehicle components, such as defective brakes, faulty steering or blown tires could result in a car losing control and striking a pedestrian, in which case the manufacturer or designer of the vehicle (or its component parts) could be partially responsible for the injuries resulting from the accident.
