Deadly Negligence

Why do pedestrian accidents occur?  Driver negligence is the primary cause of car-pedestrian accidents.  Drivers distracted while changing the radio, eating, talking on the phone or even texting are just a few reasons a tragic accident may occur.  Add a pedestrian walking or running along a narrow roadway and the chance of injury increases greatly.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents:

  • Drunk driving;
  • Running red lights;
  • Right turns through crosswalks;
  • Distracted driving, i.e. texting and driving; and,
  • Hitting pedestrians in crosswalks.
