Pedestrian Accidents Could Result in Critical Injuries

 
In today’s current state of affairs, more individuals are walking as a new way to escape home for a while.
 
As a result, pedestrian accidents have also spiked in popularity, so has the risk of pedestrian accidents.
 
Pedestrian accidents are incidents in which someone walking or crossing a road is injured by a vehicle striking them.
 
Although pedestrian accidents are becoming more common, there are ways to avoid the likelihood of being involved in one. For instance, if you’re an avid walker, it may benefit you to purchase brightly colored attire, that way you make yourself more visible to motorists around you. As a driver, looking out for pedestrians can be as simple as taking cues you see on the road. If a small light shines ahead of you on a residential street at night, it is safe to assume that you are sharing the road with a pedestrian who is carrying a flashlight. Do not, however, assume they are on the sidewalk, and make sure to tread with caution.
 
Meanwhile, here are some things that we can do to avoid such accidents which could result in serious injuries.
 
– Avoid dangerous behaviors: always walk on the sidewalk (no jaywalking), stay sober, and make eye contact with drivers, don’t assume the driver can see you.
 
– Then, look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals, and watch for turning vehicles.
 
Also, hire an experienced personal injury attorney from Sweet Lawyers if you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident.
