Although traffic laws are clear in stating that pedestrians have the right
of way, many drivers don't pay attention to the road and cause serious
accidents. Many of them claim that they didn't "see" the
pedestrian, which is inexcusable. All drivers should be aware of their
surroundings at all times to avoid endangering the safety of pedestrians.
Unfortunately, in some cases, pedestrian accidents can be fatal. If you
are a surviving family member of someone who died in a pedestrian accident,
you may have grounds to file a
wrongful death claim.
Understanding California Pedestrian Laws
It is popular belief that a pedestrian has the right of way, and it is
assumed that a driver is always at fault for hitting a pedestrian. However,
when it comes to pursuing a pedestrian accident claim, it is important
to understand the reality of California laws. A pedestrian is permitted
to proceed across a road in a marked or unmarked crosswalk if traffic
lights permit doing so. However, they must yield to traffic that was already
in the crosswalk before the signal turned.
If a pedestrian was not crossing the road in a crosswalk, liability will
be determined according to the concept of negligence. This means that
a claimant must establish that the defendant had a duty of care to avoid
endangering the pedestrian. Furthermore, it must be proven that the driver
failed to uphold this duty, and that his or her negligence caused the
accident that led to injury.
