Pedestrian accidents can happen in various different ways, whether it is during a daily run, crossing a crosswalk or unmarked street, or by simply walking on a sidewalk. More often than not, pedestrian accidents happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents often result in severe injuries that require long-term medical care. Individuals are typically faced with an astronomical amount of medical bills and damages after being involved in an Orange County pedestrian accident.

California personal injury laws allow for individuals that have been injured in accidents, including pedestrian accidents to recover damages if another party’s negligence contributed to the accident.   You may be entitled to monetary compensation, including medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering if you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident.

How Driver Negligence Can Cause Pedestrian Accidents:

Drivers are expected to give pedestrians a duty of care, which means respecting pedestrian right-of-ways. Below are examples of negligent behaviors that put drivers at fault for pedestrian accidents.

Failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian crossing within a marked crosswalk.

Stopping within a crosswalk, forcing the pedestrian to enter the roadway in order to get around a vehicle.

Passing another vehicle stopped at a crosswalk.

Speeding, driving under the influence, running a red light or stop sign, distracted driving, and other general negligent behaviors.

How Pedestrian Negligence Can Cause Pedestrian Accidents:

Like drivers, pedestrians owe a duty of care to everyone else on the road. Below are examples of negligent behaviors that put the pedestrian at fault for pedestrian accidents, even if the pedestrian is significantly injured in the collision.

Jaywalking, i.e. the failure to cross a roadway in a marked crosswalk or at the corner of an intersection.

Crossing against a traffic signal.

Darting into the street without warning.

Walking in areas or roadways where pedestrians are prohibited (i.e along freeways and on bridges).

Legal Tip:

Do not let partial liability stop you from seeking compensatory damages. Even if you are partially at fault for your pedestrian accident, we will seek damages that will help you to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
