When drivers do not watch out for pedestrians and hit or run over them, it often results in catastrophic and fatal injuries. Every year, many people who are on foot in Pennsylvania are injured or killed by cars and trucks, many operated by negligent or careless drivers.

How Pedestrian Accidents Happen

The primary cause of serious car crashes involving pedestrians is negligence. Often, this negligence is the result of a distraction such as a cellphone that keeps the attention of drivers off the road. A driver may also:

  • Fail to stop at a crosswalk
  • Speed
  • Disobey traffic lights and stop signs
  • Fail to look before turning right
  • Cross over into the shoulder or a walking path
  • Fail to yield right of way to pedestrians

Negligent drivers need to be held responsible for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses related to pedestrian crashes. An experienced lawyer can help you pursue your claim.
