Liability In Pedestrian Accidents
The Bay Area remains a very dangerous place for pedestrians. A research group at the University of California Berkeley has created an interactive map of where accidents are taking place. Most accidents tend to take place between 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. According to the California Vehicle Code 21950, “The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, except as otherwise provided in this chapter.”
A person that is injured in a car accident will have the ability to recover damages through a personal injury claim.
