FATAL PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
REPRESENTING FAMILIES THROUGHOUT CALIFORNIA

CAUSES OF PEDESTRIAN FATALITIES AND ACCIDENTS
The primary causes of pedestrian and bicycle accident fatalities – and pedestrian accidents in general – are driver inattentiveness and reduced visibility. Pedestrians may be following the rules of the road by using crosswalks and sidewalks, but drivers who speed or fail to pay attention still hit them. Many pedestrian fatalities are caused by drunk drivers.
WAS YOUR LOVED ONE PARTIALLY AT FAULT FOR THE ACCIDENT?
Just because it was dark or your loved one was not crossing in a crosswalk, does not give the negligent driver an excuse for his or her mistakes. The courts will use “comparative negligence” to determine what percentage of the blame to allocate among the involved parties. Even if your loved one is found to be partly at fault, you may still be entitled to recover for your loss.
