The risks of pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents are more common than you might think. Every year, countless people are injured or killed while trying to cross the street. These accidents can occur for various reasons, including distracted driving, speeding, and disobeying traffic laws. The results can be life-changing, with injuries ranging from broken bones to traumatic brain injuries.

Pedestrian accidents are preventable, and drivers need to pay attention when on the road to ensure the safety of everyone around them. Pedestrians should also be alert and follow traffic laws while traveling on foot.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

A variety of factors can cause pedestrian accidents. Here are some of the most common:

  • Distracted driving: Distracted drivers may be more likely to miss seeing pedestrians in crosswalks or at intersections, causing accidents.
  • Speeding: Drivers who are speeding may be less able to stop in time if a pedestrian is crossing the street.
  • Failure to yield: Drivers should always yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks or sidewalks. Failing to do so can have disastrous consequences.
  • Poor visibility: Low light conditions or weather can make seeing pedestrians on the road more difficult, making accidents more likely.
  • Pedestrian error: Even when pedestrians have the right of way, they may still make mistakes that can lead to accidents. Pedestrians may walk outside designated walkways, jaywalk, or become distracted and not pay attention to traffic signals.

The consequences of pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

These injuries can be life-changing, impacting a person's ability to work, function as they did before the accident,  or enjoy life. If you've been involved in a pedestrian accident, you must contact an experienced Dallas pedestrian accident lawyer to protect your rights and the compensation you deserve. Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Victims

Why hire a pedestrian accident attorney?

Our lawyers in Fort Worth or Dallas will begin by looking at the police report, talking to eyewitnesses, and getting detailed statements from doctors. If you were hit by a commercial vehicle or in a private parking lot, we would look into the possibility that a business may have some liability.
