Many pedestrians are hurt and several others killed in accidents in California every year. The causes of many of these pedestrian accidents include distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving and failure to observe traffic laws. It is evident that negligence on the part of motorists is the leading cause of these accidents.
Motorists are also required by law to slow down as they approach crosswalks, whether marked or unmarked. They are also expected to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians at controlled intersections. In the event of a pedestrian accident, the authorities will carry out an investigation to establish if the driver may have violated these traffic rules. The authorities may conduct a sobriety test on the driver to establish if the motorist had been driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If an investigation proves that negligence on the part of the motorist was a factor in the accident, the victim’s family are advised to file a case in court.
