Have You Been Hit by a Motorist?

Pedestrians on or near the road are susceptible to becoming involved in accidents with motor vehicles. Because there is no measure of protection between themselves and automobiles weighing thousands of pounds, these accidents commonly result in very serious injury or even death. Even the smallest mistake by a motor vehicle operator, such as failing to come to a complete stop at a red light or stop sign, can end up with a jogger or walker getting hit.
Usually, pedestrian-vehicle accident cases hinge on the duty of care owed by those involved. Both drivers and pedestrians must follow the rules of the road and exercise reasonable care. In many cases, it may seem obvious who was negligent, but the courts look at numerous factors in applying the facts to the negligence elements.

People in Virginia during 2017 were injured in traffic-related incidents walking near a road and 78 pedestrians did not survive.

of these accidents happened while the pedestrian was crossing the street at an intersection that had a traffic signal.

Many intersection accidents involving pedestrians result from a driver’s failure to yield or inattention.
