Liability In Car Accidents
Around 5,000 pedestrians are killed every year in car accidents. The vast majority of accidents tend to take place between 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. this is when most drivers are coming home from work. It is incredibly important that drivers take the time to observe their surroundings and drive cautiously. If a driver hits a pedestrian while they are speeding or distracted they could face civil liability for an accident.
In addition to driver negligence, there may also be negligence on the part of a city if an accident was caused by a dangerous condition on public property. An intersection could be dangerous if it is poorly lit or lacks basic safety features like stop signs or street lights. A car accident attorney can conduct an investigation into your case and let you know what entities may be responsible for your accident.
