Common Causes of Vehicle-Pedestrian Collisions
Our California personal injury lawyers have a track record of successfully recovering damages for victims of pedestrian accidents. We have found that the most common forms of negligence that lead to pedestrian collisions include the following:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cell phone while driving
- Applying makeup, eating, or otherwise multitasking while on the roads
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while dangerously drowsy
- Running red lights
- Driving without headlights
- Failing to yield to the pedestrian’s right of way
- Ignoring crossing signals
How Will My Attorney Prove Liability in A Pedestrian Accident Case?
Depending on what caused the accident, our attorneys will use a variety of strategies. We understand the laws governing both motorists and pedestrians and will build an argument that is tailored to the unique circumstances of your case.
Generally, your lawyer will seek to gather the following evidence in support of your personal injury claim:
- Dashcam recordings
- Footage from traffic light cameras
- The police report
- The driver’s cell phone records
- Photos of the accident scene and your injuries
- Your medical records
- Eyewitness testimony
- Expert witness opinions
If you were at fault – or partially at fault – for your accident (for instance, if you were jaywalking or running across a highway without a crosswalk), you might wonder whether it’s worth pursuing a claim. No matter the circumstances, you should always consult a lawyer to evaluate your options. In California, the law of “comparative negligence” entitles you to pursue damages even if you contributed to your accident. Although your reward will be reduced by the percentage to which you were at fault, you may still be able to walk away with some compensation.
