Liability In Pedestrian Accidents
Every driver has a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles safely and to yield the right of way to pedestrians when necessary. According to 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.”
The family members of any person that was killed due to the negligence of another driver may be able to seek justice through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death attorney can investigate all of the facts of your case free of cost and get to the bottom of what happened.
