What Causes Pedestrian Accidents?
Pedestrian accidents are not usually purposeful, but they do have specific causes. These factors contribute to their occurrence and forever change victims’ lives. Often, these causes can be attributed to driver negligence or wrongdoing. When they do, a victim can seek compensation from that person for medical treatment, lost earnings, and other damages resulting from the accident.
The following are examples of driving conduct that can cause pedestrian accidents:
- Driving too fast for road/weather conditions
- Drunk driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Driving while distracted
- Texting while driving
- Running a red light
- Failure to yield to a pedestrian
Pedestrian accidents can also be caused by faulty traffic signals or defective roads that provide insufficient pedestrian access or limited visibility. They can also result from defective auto parts that cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle.
No matter the cause of your accident, you can trust that our Orange County pedestrian accident lawyers will work to determine fault and therefore legal responsibility. We will fight for the complete compensation you need.
