Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
There are immeasurable different causes of accidents of this nature; however, one of the most common rests on the fact that far too often automobilists drive too fast through areas of pedestrian traffic and fail to respect the pedestrian's rights of way. They also ignore school and children playing signs and fail to slow down. Yet another cause is often due to drivers failing to stop for school buses with flashing lights. All of these acts of negligence pose a risk for pedestrians.
Unfortunately, many drivers who have indeed struck pedestrians do not have the courage to stop and deal with the consequences of their actions. They drive on - leaving the victim to deal with their own injuries. Where this occurs, the pedestrian can maintain a claim against his own insurance company on his personal coverage. If it is the children or other dependents in the household who are hurt, they often can use the family’s insurance for recovery of damages.
