Our unflagging commitment to client advocacy has allowed us to recover more than $400 Million in compensation on behalf of the injury victims who depend on us.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Generally speaking, most pedestrian accidents are caused by motorist negligence or failure to follow traffic laws. This is especially true in urban areas, like Atlanta, where there is a steady flow of sidewalk traffic and intersections, crosswalks, and other stop-and-go road features are common.

Some of the major causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Fatigued driving
  • Unsafe turns at intersections
  • Failing to obey traffic signs and lights
  • Failing to signal a turn or lane change
  • Failing to yield for pedestrians
  • Impaired driving (DUI, drugged driving)
  • Distracted driving (talking on the phone, texting while driving, etc.)

If you believe that one of these motorist actions, or any other, led directly to your pedestrian accident injury, then we invite you to contact our firm today. We are ready to hear your story, help assess the circumstances of your case, and, if necessary, start aggressively pursuing the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Who is Usually At Fault in a Pedestrian Accident?

In most circumstances the driver is found to be at fault for a pedestrian accident. This is because motorists have a responsibility to yield to pedestrians, regardless of what the pedestrian is doing. If a person enters the roadway, whether in a crosswalk or elsewhere, the driver is expected to stop whenever it is physically possible to do so. However, there are some situations in which the driver may not bear as much fault as the pedestrian, for example, if the pedestrian entered the road too suddenly for the motorist to see them or to stop in time to avoid hitting them.

Determining fault in pedestrian accidents can be tricky at times. If you need help proving that the driver was responsible for your injuries, and that you were not hurt through any fault of your own, reach out to our team to discuss your situation in a free consultation with our pedestrian accident attorneys in Atlanta.
