Pedestrians are among the group of road users who are at a high risk of getting involved in accidents. Whenever vehicles collide with pedestrians, the likelihood of serious injury or even fatalities is very high. The following are some of the reasons why pedestrian accidents take place and how an accident lawyer can help.

Pedestrian Error

Pedestrians are highly capable of avoiding accidents as it is not common for a collision to take place away from the road. When pedestrians are cautious while walking on the road, the likelihood of getting hit by a vehicle is very low. The chances of a pedestrian getting involved in an accident are high in the following scenarios:

  • Ignoring Traffic Controls- Traffic controls are timed in a way that when a signal moves from walk to do not walk, it is not safe for the pedestrian to cross the road. During such instances, pedestrians who are walking on the road should proceed to cross but those on the corner need to wait for the signal to change. If the road has no pedestrian traffic controls, pedestrians should cross when the light turns yellow.
  • Jay walking- When pedestrians cross the road in unexpected or inappropriate locations, they are putting themselves at a high risk of getting injured. Pedestrians are advised to cross at intersections or designated crosswalks.
  • Darting child- Children move about the roadway without regarding traffic often pursuing another child, a toy, play thing or pet. Drivers need to be cautious when they are passing near a school, park or where children are playing.
  • Parent in pursuit- When children dart into the road, the parent is the first person to go after the child and they may pursue the child without regarding traffic resulting in an accident.
  • Walking on a highway with limited access- Pedestrians walking on highways that have limited access face a high risk of getting involved in accidents. Traffic on highways moves very fast and in most cases drivers do not expect pedestrians to be moving about. Pedestrians should pay attention to road signs that say “no pedestrians”. Furthermore, if your car gets spoiled on a highway with limited access, you should be cautious when crossing the road in search of help.

Drive Error

The common driver errors that contribute to accidents involving pedestrians include:

  • Ignoring a Crosswalk- Motorists who fail to be attentive on crosswalks face a high risk of getting involved in accidents. Drivers should exercise reasonable care to ensure that pedestrians are not passing by a crosswalk when they attempt to pass through.
  • Ignoring Traffic Control Devices- Whenever drivers disregard traffic controls especially those related to pedestrian traffic; an accident is likely to occur.
  • Ignoring Pedestrians Who are Crossing Roadways- When a pedestrian is in a roadway ahead of a vehicle and is either crossing the road or passing through a driver’s lane, the driver should be cautious. Drivers are advised to yield to the pedestrian to avoid a collision.
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs: Drunk drivers are a great menace to pedestrians. Many accidents that involve cars and pedestrians are caused by intoxicated drivers.
  • Overtaking a School Bus: When a driver ignores the flashing overhead lights of a school bus, overtaking the bus poses a great risk to children who are probably alighting from the school bus.

How a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Can Help

The parties in any accident including the one at fault and the insurance company, immediately start to gather their facts regarding the accident. If you attempt to gather evidence on your own, you are likely to miss important data because of your inexperience in evidence collection. Hiring a lawyer following a pedestrian accident will ensure that the other side does not have an edge over you.

An experienced attorney understands the evidence that you should collect after an accident. You need to make an account of the crash with the help of an attorney. A good lawyer is capable of collecting all crucial information and interviewing witnesses in an attempt to build a strong case.

Your attorney is the best person to negotiate with the defendant’s insurance provider on your behalf. Insurance companies have a cunning way of giving you an unfair settlement so as to capitalize on your need to end the case quickly. The presence of an attorney ensures you get what is rightfully yours even if it means going to trial.

One of the important services that a lawyer offers a victim of a pedestrian accident is representation. When you have an experienced and renowned lawyer by your side, the opposing side will never underestimate you. In fact, the defendant’s side is more agreeable to reasonable demands if they are presented by your lawyer. In case the situation goes out of hand and moves to court, your lawyer’s influence on the judge or jury is what will make or break your case. Therefore, having an experienced Nassau County Pedestrian Accident Lawyer is your best chance of getting a fair ruling.
