Get the Legal Advocacy You Need
Like bicyclists, pedestrians have very little protection from the road and the large vehicles around them. Drivers are therefore expected to keep an eye out and be wary of pedestrians around them, whether they are crossing the street or in a parking lot.
If you have been injured by a careless driver, Tennyson Law Firm can help. Our personal injury attorneys are here to hold drivers accountable for failing to exercise safe driving habits.
Types of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can be caused by a wide range of factors; however, the underlying factor is that a careless driver is behind the wheel. When a driver fails to notice a pedestrian for any reason, the results can be catastrophic or even fatal. The driver who caused your accident may try to avoid taking responsibility by claiming that you did something wrong. We are here to prove otherwise and ensure they do not get away with their negligent behavior.
A few of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents are:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Disregarding crosswalks
- Failing to heed traffic signals
