Why Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen?

As a pedestrian accident attorney can attest, there are many reasons for serious incidents between motor vehicles and pedestrians. Distracted driving plays a major role, as many drivers are distracted by their phones, their passengers, the radio and much more. Along with impaired driving – which may involve alcohol or illegal drugs or a combination of both – distraction is one of the top reasons drivers cause pedestrian accidents.

Pedestrians must yield to traffic if crossing a roadway outside of a crosswalk, but they have the right of way in a crosswalk. The law in Georgia says that drivers must not only yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk but must also “stop and stay stopped.”

If you have been hit by a motor vehicle while walking, running or riding a bicycle, the goal is to show that the other driver was negligent. While the driver likely didn’t mean to hit you, they made an avoidable mistake, such as driving forward when you clearly had the right of way. Evidence can come from witness statements, police reports, video footage and much more.
