Common Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents
The most common cause of pedestrian collisions is motor vehicle driver negligence or carelessness. All drivers must practice safe-driving practices and take due care around a pedestrian. If a driver fails to yield the right of way to a pedestrian, the driver may be found at fault for the pedestrian accident.
Additional causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Faulty or malfunctioning traffic signals
- Missing or obscured traffic signs
- Poorly designed roads and intersections
- Inadequately maintained sidewalks and roads
Don’t Delay Taking Action – Time Is Of The Essence
In California, the statute of limitations (amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim) is typically two years from the date of injury or the date you discover the injury. The statue of limitations may vary, however, depending on the circumstances surrounding the case. For example, you must file claims against a city or state government within six months of the date of injury.
