Facts about Pedestrians and Accidents

 
Pedestrians have the right of way at any crosswalk or intersection. Therefore, it’s a driver’s responsibility to yield and be prepared to stop.
 
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
 
Furthermore, common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances, street corners, and intersections.
 


 
“Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents. Nevertheless, the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries,” says Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
