What Are Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?

These accidents can happen in a number of ways and be caused by either the pedestrian or the driver.

Pedestrians have the right of way at crosswalks, but may cause accidents by:

  • Leaving the curb
  • Running or walking in front of a vehicle
  • Or crossing the road suddenly in an area without a crosswalk

In most other situations, motorists are the cause of pedestrian accidents.

Drivers cause pedestrian accidents by:

  • Turning at an intersection without stopping
  • Driving above the speed limit in residential areas
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Being distracted by a phone or device
  • Failing to come to a complete stop at a light or stop sign
  • Inattentive driving

Pedestrians have the same right to use the roads and streets as motorists. In Colorado, as in most states, drivers have a duty to exercise care and yield to pedestrians at the crosswalk and when walking on or crossing roadways. If drivers are negligent, careless, or reckless and cause an accident, the pedestrian may file a lawsuit to seek compensation for injuries sustained in an accident.

What To Do After a Pedestrian Accident

The first thing you should do after a pedestrian accident is to get the medical treatment you need. If you don’t have insurance, our attorneys have relationships with respected doctors and medical specialists, so you can get the medical care you need with no upfront costs.

At the time of the accident, it is helpful to gather information such as:

  • Witnesses to the accident, including their names and phone numbers
  • Information about the responsible party and his or her insurance
  • Information about the accident, including photos of the scene
  • Your injuries

After you are out of immediate danger and your injuries have been treated, you may want consult with an experienced pedestrian injury attorney to discuss your case.

What To Do After a Hit and Run Pedestrian Accident

If you or a loved one have been the victim of a hit and run accident, you should follow the above steps including:

  • Receiving medical attention
  • Documenting information from the accident scene
  • Giving the police any information you or witnesses have regarding the accident

Although it may seem hopeless trying to pursue compensation after the guilty party has fled the scene, it's still very important that you reach out to a pedestrian injury lawyer immediately. The police will do their best to track down the driver, so it's important that you are prepared to pursue legal action as soon as they are found.

Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car/Pedestrian Accident?

Despite the fact that vehicles are required to yield to pedestrians, a pedestrian may be at partial or full fault for an accident. The reason for this being that pedestrians are responsible to follow laws pertaining to traffic patterns if they are transporting by foot.

Examples of situations where pedestrians have been held at fault include:

  • Pedestrians crossing the street when a traffic sign instructs otherwise
  • Pedestrians crossing the road without using a crosswalk (commonly referred to as jaywalking)
  • Pedestrians entering into zones that are clearly not meant for walking
