Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. In many cases, these accidents are the result of negligence on the part of the driver. When a driver fails to exercise reasonable care and caution behind the wheel, they can be held liable for any resulting damages.

Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted Driving: When drivers take their eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel, or their minds off the task of driving, they can cause serious accidents. Texting, talking on the phone, eating, grooming, and using in-car technologies are all common forms of distracted driving.
  • Drunk Driving: Alcohol and/or drug impairment can significantly impact a driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle. Drunk drivers are more likely to speed, run red lights, and engage in other dangerous behaviors that can cause pedestrian accidents.
  • Speeding: Speeding is a leading cause of all types of traffic accidents, including pedestrian accidents. When drivers exceed the speed limit, they have less time to react to hazards in the road and are more likely to cause serious accidents.
  • Failure to Yield: Drivers are required to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in crosswalks and at intersections. When drivers fail to do so, they can cause serious accidents.
  • Backing Up Accidents: Drivers who are backing up are often unable to see pedestrians behind their vehicle. When a driver fails to check their mirrors and blind spots before backing up, they can hit a pedestrian.
  • Poor Road Conditions: Potholes, uneven pavement, and other road defects can cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle and hit a pedestrian.
  • Vehicle Defects: In some cases, a pedestrian accident is the result of a defective vehicle or vehicle part. For example, if a vehicle’s brakes fail, the driver may be unable to stop in time to avoid hitting a pedestrian.

Who is Liable for a Pedestrian Accident?

Liability for a pedestrian accident will depend on the specific circumstances involved. In many cases, the driver of the vehicle that hit the pedestrian will be held liable for the accident and the pedestrian’s resulting damages. However, this is not always the case.

Other potentially liable parties in a pedestrian accident include:

  • The pedestrian: In some cases, the pedestrian may be partially or fully at fault for the accident. For example, if a pedestrian jaywalks and is hit by a car, they may be held partially liable for the accident.
  • The driver’s employer: If the driver was working at the time of the accident, their employer may be held liable for the pedestrian’s damages.
  • A third party: In some cases, a third party may be held liable for a pedestrian accident. For example, if the accident was caused by a defective vehicle part, the manufacturer of the part may be held liable.
