(1)  A Duty of Care is owed to the plaintiff under the circumstances, (2) the responsible party breach their duty of care to the injured party (plaintiff) (3) the defendant was the actual and proximate cause of the plaintiff’s damages and (4) the plaintiff actually suffered some harm (psychological or physical) as a result of the defendants negligence.

Pedestrian Accident Statistics and Helpful Information.

  • A pedestrian is killed in a traffic crash every 111 minutes.

  • Be careful on Roads with no Stop Signs: Over 40 percent of fatalities occurred on roads without crosswalks.

Pedestrian Accidents Involving Left hand turns and right hand turns.

20% of all traffic light intersection accidents involve motorist hitting pedestrians while making left hand and white hand turns.  Left and turn are more dangerous for pedestrians account for more than 60% of all fatalities.  A large reason behind such a high accident rate is the detection issue.  Drivers at intersections are forced to pay attention to many different objects and actions at ones making detection of a pedestrian walking on the street more difficult.  Another issue is visibility: all too often roads are defectively designed making visibility during a right hand turn or left hand turn difficult.

If you have been struck by a car making a turn at an intersection contact our pedestrian injury legal team.  We will investigate your claim thoroughly and determine what is the best legal course of action available.
