Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

A pedestrian accident refers to any incident where a person on foot is struck by a motor vehicle. These accidents can result in serious injuries or fatalities due to the size and speed of the vehicles involved. Here are some common causes of pedestrian accidents involving motor vehicles:

  • Distracted Driving: When drivers are distracted by activities such as texting, talking on the phone, eating, or adjusting the radio, they may fail to notice pedestrians crossing the road.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver's ability to react to unexpected situations, such as pedestrians suddenly entering the roadway. It also increases the severity of injuries if a collision does occur.
  • Failure to Yield: Drivers may fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians at crosswalks, intersections, or when making turns, leading to collisions.
  • Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment, reaction time, and coordination, increasing the risk of striking pedestrians.
  • Poor Visibility: Factors such as low light conditions, inclement weather, or obstructed views (due to parked cars, vegetation, or buildings) can reduce visibility for both drivers and pedestrians, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
  • Ignoring Traffic Signals: Some pedestrian accidents occur when drivers run red lights or fail to stop at stop signs, intersecting with pedestrians who have the right-of-way.
  • Backing Up: Pedestrians can be struck by vehicles backing out of driveways, parking spaces, or alleys if drivers fail to check their surroundings adequately.
  • Driver Inexperience or Inattention: Inexperienced drivers or those who are not fully focused on the task of driving may fail to anticipate pedestrian movements and fail to yield appropriately.
  • Infrastructure Issues: Poorly designed or maintained roadways, lack of proper signage or crosswalks, and inadequate lighting can contribute to pedestrian accidents by creating hazardous conditions for both drivers and pedestrians.
  • Pedestrian Behavior: While drivers are often at fault in pedestrian accidents, pedestrians can also contribute to collisions by jaywalking, crossing against traffic signals, or being distracted by electronic devices while walking.

Common Injuries Sustained in Pedestrian Accidents

Why You Need a North Augusta Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

After a pedestrian accident, you will likely be contacted by the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance adjuster may seem friendly and concerned about your well-being, but never forget that the insurance company is not on your side. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that are primarily concerned with their bottom lines. To protect their profits, insurance companies will do everything they can to minimize or deny your claim. They may try to get you to admit fault for the accident or sign a medical authorization form that allows them to access your confidential medical records. They may even offer you a lowball settlement that does not come close to covering the full extent of your losses.

When you hire our Savannah pedestrian accident lawyers, you can leave the insurance company to us. We will handle all communication and negotiation with the insurer, fighting for the maximum compensation you are owed. And if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we will not hesitate to take your case to court. We are not afraid to go up against large insurance companies and their teams of lawyers.
