The Driver May Not Be the Only One at Fault
There are countless reasons that can lead to pedestrian accidents. In many cases, the driver is not the only one who is at fault. Another person, company, or government body could be as well.
Factors that contribute to accidents include:
- Vehicle and driver: Drunk driving, distracted driving or inattention, drowsy driving, speeding, running a red light, heavy traffic, auto defects such as brake failures or unintended acceleration, cars with large blind spots
- Physical environment: No crosswalk or sidewalk, lack of a safe divider between opposing lanes, the size of the roadway, no walk signals or ones that are not properly timed, sidewalks that are not large enough for the volume of pedestrians, poorly designed parking lots
- Special conditions: Hazardous weather, inadequate snow or ice removal, construction, overgrown plants and trees, street vendors blocking sight lines, inadequate planning for special events
