Liability In Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are small and can be easy to miss if drivers are not paying attention. According to California Vehicle Code 21453, “A driver facing a steady circular red signal alone shall stop at a marked limit line, but if none, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before entering the intersection, and shall remain stopped until an indication to proceed is shown, except as provided in subdivision (b).” The family of any pedestrian that is killed in an accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
