Liability In Lancaster Pedestrian Accidents
All drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and to yield the right of way to pedestrians that are in lawfully marked crosswalks. 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.” Drivers that flee the scene of a pedestrian accident are likely to face criminal as well as civil liability.
Victims of pedestrian accidents tend to suffer from a wide variety of injuries. According to Web MD, “most accidents are not fatal, but even minor ones can cause long-term anxiety as well as fears and phobias about driving or riding in a car.” Any person that is injured in a bicycle accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim may include lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A pedestrian accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal rights are.
