Liability In Pedestrian Accidents
Drivers have a responsibility to avoid hitting pedestrians even if they are not in lawfully marked crosswalks. According to California Vehicle Code 21950, “The driver of a vehicle approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk shall exercise all due care and shall reduce the speed of the vehicle or take any other action relating to the operation of the vehicle as necessary to safeguard the safety of the pedestrian.” The family of any pedestrian that died in an accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
