Causes & Results of Pedestrian Accidents
In most cases, pedestrian accidents are caused by driver negligence. For example, a driver who is texting and doesn’t see that they are running a red light when they strike a pedestrian who was legally crossing the road. There are other factors which can come into play, such as broken pavement, unmarked intersections, construction debris, or lack of crosswalks or sidewalks.
Pedestrian accidents can be caused by the following forms of negligence:
- Fatigued/tired driving
- Driving under the influence
