Liability For West Seneca Pedestrian Collisions

Far too many pedestrians are killed in collisions each year. Many of these accidents involve hit-and-runs. According to the AAA Foundation, “In 2016, there were 1,980 fatal hit-and-run crashes resulting in 2,049 fatalities. This is the highest annual number of hit-and-run fatalities or crashes recorded since NHTSA began compiling statistics on fatal motor vehicle crashes in 1975.” There are many steps that should be taken after any pedestrian collision.

  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • A pedestrian accident attorney should be contacted.

The vast majority of pedestrian accidents are preventable. They tend to occur when drivers are distracted or traveling too fast for the prevailing conditions. Depending on the facts of any case, a driver could be liable for a pedestrian collision. The family of any person that died in a pedestrian collision may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
