has been built for vehicle transportation and is not often pedestrian
friendly. Because of the design focus of the city, pedestrian accidents
are quite common when combined with the negligence of vehicle drivers.
Liability in a Pedestrian Accident
Most pedestrian accidents result from a negligent driver who fails to yield
to a pedestrian crossing the street. Driver distractions, such as the
use of cell phones and other devices while driving are frequent causes
of pedestrian accidents.
Some of the common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Failure to look both ways
- Failure to stop at intersections
- Failure to stop at crosswalks

compensation that you deserve from the situation. At The Werner Law Firm,
