What Are Some Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?
A person who decides to operate a motor vehicle inherently accepts the risks involved with driving and is required to follow all the traffic laws, exercise care and watch out for other cars and pedestrians at all times. Sometimes even the most careful drivers may not see a pedestrian due to weather or other factors. James McKiernan Pedestrian Accident Attorneys created a list of the most common accident causes:
- Speeding: decreases the time a driver has to react to other cars, pedestrians and traffic signals.
- Intoxicated driving: alcohol and drugs including some prescription medication influences a person's ability to drive.
