Oftentimes, beach cities and surrounding areas have many pedestrians. Due
to the high volume of walkers in these areas, it is important that drivers
keep their eyes focused on the road and watch for pedestrians at every
corner and intersection. Unfortunately, with the busy life most people

How Do Pedestrian Accidents Occur?
Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents most commonly occur when a driver is
not paying attention to the road or other people in the area. With this
being said, distracted drivers often cause pedestrian accidents. Most
pedestrian injuries are the result of negligent drivers who:
- enter crosswalks
- pass through intersections
- turn corners without looking for pedestrians
- fail to yield to pedestrians
For this reason, it is important to keep in mind that as long as you were
crossing the street legally and gave the motorist enough time to yield
the right-of-way, you have every right to file a claim for compensation.
Injuries Caused in Pedestrian Accidents
Most accidents involving pedestrians result in catastrophic injuries that
leave the victim with lasting or permanent injuries. Common injuries include
road rash, broken bones, neck and back injuries, traumatic brain injuries,
and spinal cord injuries. In the worst cases of all, innocent pedestrians
can also lose their lives when they are hit by a careless motorist. If
you are a family member of someone who has died in such a tragic accident,
you can also obtain compensation through a wrongful death claim.
