Pedestrian Injuries Caused By Driver Negligence

The impact between a vehicle and a person is likely to cause severe injuries on its own, but a person may also be injured by the fall to the pavement, or they may be thrown into traffic and struck or run over by another vehicle. Some of the injuries a pedestrian may experience in a collision include:

In many cases, pedestrian accidents are caused by driver negligence. Some common forms of negligence in these cases include:

  • Distracted driving - Drivers may take their eyes off the road for a variety of reasons, and cell phone use while driving has been a major concern in recent years. Any lapse in attention can cause a driver to not see a pedestrian near their vehicle, and this can result in a dangerous collision.
  • Violations of traffic laws - Drivers not only risk traffic tickets and other consequences when they violate the law, but they also put pedestrians in danger. For example, a driver who is speeding may be unable to slow down in time to avoid hitting a person on foot. A person who follows too closely behind another car may cause a rear-end collision, and this may push the other vehicle into a crosswalk and cause it to strike a pedestrian. Drivers may also injure pedestrians if they fail to give them right of way in crosswalks.
  • Drunk driving - The use of alcohol or drugs while driving can impair a driver's vision, coordination, judgment, and reaction time, causing them to be unable to avoid a collision with a person on foot.
