When you are living in a city as busy and populated as Los Angeles, you have to be just as careful walking on a sidewalk as when you are driving a car. The biggest problem with pedestrian accidents is that they are often times life threatening for pedestrians since they are not protected by any shield around them, which is the case when you are in a car. Furthermore, the speed and uncontrolled behavior of the driver can further damage a person for life. Any injuries caused by drivers due to their negligence or irresponsible behavior must be challenged by the victim.
We at Ehline Law understand that it is not easy to know where you must start but that’s what our professional attorneys are here for. We will make sure that you get the justice you need and the vehicle driver is punished for his wrongdoing to avoid further negligence.
Pedestrian accidents are more common in living areas where there are a lot of houses and people living. The drivers are not as cautious as they are on highways and this casual behavior can cause life threatening accidents. Some of the common factors causing pedestrian accidents we are experienced in are as follows:
Anywhere in any populated city, this turns out to be one of the most common reasons for pedestrian accidents. Drivers are always directed to drive slowly in pedestrian streets and areas that are densely populated. Drivers continue to drive speedily when they are either too passionate about driving fast or are busy on their cell phones and miss the speed limit signs.
This happens to old and experienced drivers as well as new ones. For many reasons they can end up ignoring their surrounding thus not knowing that there is a school nearby or some other place where there could be a lot of people and children. Drivers can ignore surroundings out of frustration too i.e. they wouldn’t slow down even after seeing that an old person is crossing the road and he’ll obviously go real slow.
This can also be a result of frustration or distraction in the form of texting on mobile phones. Slow down and stop signs are pretty common in populated areas and neighborhoods. You miss any of those signs and you can get ready for a fatal accident.
It is not alright to let go of your right when you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident.
