How an Attorney May Assist Pedestrians Who Have Been Involved in Car Accidents
Many of San Antonio’s residents and tourists alike choose to avoid the hassles of traffic and parking by getting around on foot. With ample infrastructure for pedestrian traffic like clearly marked crosswalks, timed crosswalk counters, and handicap accessible sidewalks, walking can be quite safe.
On some unfortunate occasions, though, negligent drivers strike and seriously injure pedestrians. When these accidents are caused by a driver’s negligence and lack of due care, the victim is often eligible for financial restitution. An experienced personal injury lawyer is often imperative in the process of holding a negligent party financially accountable for their actions.
Reckless Behaviors That Put Pedestrians at Risk
There are several kind of reckless behaviors that drivers exhibit that put pedestrians at a heightened risk of injury including:
- Speeding through turns
- Failure to come to a complete stop at red lights / stop signs
- Failure to observe traffic laws posted at marked crosswalks
As avoidable as pedestrian car accidents are, it is tragic they should happen at all. When they do, victims may be eligible to recover compensation from the responsible party through the civil court system.
