Liability In Car Accidents
Drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and take steps to avoid accidents. According to California Vehicle Code 21954, “Every pedestrian upon a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway so near as to constitute an immediate hazard. The provisions of this section shall not relieve the driver of a vehicle from the duty to exercise due care for the safety of any pedestrian upon a roadway.” The family of any victim that died in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through California Code of Civil Procedure 377.60.
