The majority of pedestrian accidents are caused by negligent drivers, but that won’t always be the case. There are a variety of circumstances that can cause a pedestrian to be injured when being knocked down to the ground, such as bad weather. All drivers and pedestrians have a responsibility to one another: a driver must use reasonable care to avoid hitting a pedestrian, and a pedestrian must use reasonable care to safely cross a street. This applies regardless of weather conditions. Below, our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers will discuss what happens when environmental conditions contribute towards causing a pedestrian accident.
