Liability For Callicoon Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are nearly 1.5 times more likely to be killed in collisions than those in passenger vehicles. According to the National Safety Council, an estimated 7,668 pedestrians died in traffic crashes in 2019. Pedestrian collisions tend to occur on private property such as driveways and parking lots. There are a number of reasons that a pedestrian accident may occur.

  • Drivers may be traveling too fast for the prevailing conditions.
  • Drivers may lose control of their vehicle due to inclement weather.
  • Drivers may fail to pay attention to the road ahead of them.

Drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. The vast majority of pedestrian accidents are avoidable and involve some amount of human error. The family of any person that died in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
