Liability In  Irondequoit Pedestrian Accidents

Thousands of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “an estimated 137,000 pedestrians were treated in emergency departments for nonfatal crash-related injuries in 2017. Per trip, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to be killed in a car crash.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to a pedestrian accident.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver fatigue

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. If a driver hits a pedestrian after going through a yield sign without stopping, this may be considered prima facie evidence of their failure to yield. Any driver that hits a pedestrian could be held liable through a civil claim. Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including.

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Organ damage
