How Do Pedestrian Accidents Occur?

When motorists hit pedestrians, they often try to claim that the pedestrian suddenly stepped out in front of them, but this is rarely true. In most cases, negligence on the part of the motorist is what leads to catastrophic and often fatal collisions with pedestrians.

Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Failure to yield at pedestrian crossings
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to stop at red lights/stop signs
  • Turning into the path of a pedestrian

Pedestrian accidents can and do occur along all types of streets, roadways, highways, and freeways in both urban and rural areas. They also often occur in high-pedestrian-traffic areas, such as parking lots and garages. Even when collisions occur at relatively low speeds, pedestrians can suffer life-altering or life-threatening injuries.
