Common Causes of Vehicle-Pedestrian Collisions in California
Our Redlands pedestrian accident lawyers have a track record of successfully recovering damages for victims of pedestrian accidents. In many cases, the driver is to blame: Texting while driving, driving while impaired, disregarding traffic laws, and generally failing to use reasonable care while behind the wheel can have a deadly impact on pedestrians lawfully using a crosswalk.
We have found that the most common forms of negligence that lead to pedestrian collisions include:
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Drowsy driving
- Running red lights
- Driving without headlights
- Failing to yield to the pedestrian’s right of way
- Ignoring crossing signals
Depending on what caused the accident, our attorneys will use different tactics, from hiring an accident reconstructionist to replicate the accident scene, to proving a driver’s intoxication or impairment. We understand the laws binding both motorists and pedestrians and will structure our case to fit the unique circumstances of your case.
We Investigate Pedestrian Accidents
After being involved in a pedestrian accident, you may not be sure of what happened and why. In these situations, we recommend contacting an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer in Redlands. An attorney from Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will thoroughly investigate the accident, gather evidence regarding what happened and why, and identify the liable party or parties. We will speak with eyewitnesses, review the police report, and gather any photos and video footage available. Our goal is to get to the bottom of what happened and why, and then use the relevant evidence to build a case against the at-fault party.
