How Do Driver Mistakes Lead to Pedestrian Accidents?

In many ways, pedestrians can avoid their own injuries by taking due care. This means looking both directions before crossing, using crosswalks, and obeying traffic controls. Too often, however, even a careful pedestrian can be struck by a motor vehicle.

Drivers make many mistakes on the road that can cause danger to passing pedestrians, including:

  • Disregarding a traffic device: When drivers ignore or fail to see a red light or stop sign they may strike a pedestrian crossing with the right of way.
  • Passing a school bus: If a driver illegally passes a school bus, it can result in a serious accident and extensive injury.
  • Disregarding or failing to acknowledge a crosswalk: Drivers may fail to recognize crosswalks, especially in heavily trafficked areas or shopping centers.
  • Driving under the influence: Intoxicated drivers are less likely to notice pedestrians, or may fail to stop in time to avoid a collision.
  • Ignoring or failing to see a pedestrian already in the roadway: Pedestrians always have the right of way, yet often, drivers fail to yield to individuals on foot.
  • Passing another vehicle: State law allows drivers to pass another vehicle only in limited circumstances, and a driver may be at fault if he tries to pass another vehicle when it is unsafe to do so.

Injuries that Result from Pedestrian Accidents

Because of the force of impact, pedestrian-motor vehicle accidents result in very serious injury.

Common injuries that occur include:

  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Scarring
  • Sprains/strains
  • Death

A pedestrian-motor vehicle accident is a traumatic and potentially life-altering event which can result in serious personal injury. Insurance companies recognize the distinction between pedestrian cases and ordinary auto accidents; make sure that you hire a pedestrian accident attorney in Cranston who also recognizes this distinction.
