Car accidents involving pedestrians often lead to serious injuries and even fatalities in some cases. It’s important to hold the responsible individuals liable for their actions to ensure compensation for the victim or their family.
Liability for Car/Pedestrian Accidents
In majority of cases, the driver of the car is to be blamed for not being patient with the pedestrians or denying pedestrians their legal right of way.
The drivers who cause the accident are usually distracted and act in a negligent manner by not obeying traffic laws, including:
- failure to stop at stop signs
- texting and not paying attention
