How Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?
Pedestrians have the right to cross the road at all crosswalks, and drivers must completely stop in Georgia. The results of a pedestrian accident can be devastating for victims. The following are some of the reasons pedestrian accidents happen.
The driver was distracted by using a cell phone.
There were design defects in the crosswalk, including malfunctioning crossing lights.
The driver did not yield for the pedestrian.
The driver did not look both ways before turning.
The driver was speeding.
The driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Although pedestrian accidents can happen anywhere, they are more likely in downtown areas, such as Atlanta. Even country roads can lead to horrific accidents because of the lack of visibility on winding roads.
Was There a Problem With the Crosswalk?
While the driver is often responsible in a pedestrian accident, this is not always the case. The location of the crosswalk and design of the road can also play a role in these accidents.
Sometimes, the professionals who designed the road and crosswalk are to blame for a pedestrian accident, along with the driver.
Some of the defendants sought in a pedestrian accident may include the following.
