Liability In Pedestrian Accidents
Drivers are expected to obey the rules of the road and take reasonable measures to avoid accidents. But far too often drivers become distracted and aren’t paying attention to where they are going. The vast majority of pedestrian accidents happen between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Drivers as well as pedestrians should be extremely cautious during this time. Victims of a car accident or their family may have the ability to file a personal injury claim in order to recover damages for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
