Although traffic laws are clear in stating that pedestrians have the right of way, many drivers don't pay attention to the road and cause serious accidents. Many of them claim that they didn't "see" the pedestrian, which is inexcusable. All drivers should be aware of their surroundings at all times to avoid endangering the safety of pedestrians. Unfortunately, in some cases, pedestrian accidents can be fatal. If you are a surviving family member of someone who died in a pedestrian accident, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim.
Understanding California Pedestrian Laws
It is popular belief that a pedestrian has the right of way, and it is assumed that a driver is always at fault for hitting a pedestrian. However, when it comes to pursuing a pedestrian accident claim, it is important to understand the reality of California laws. A pedestrian is permitted to proceed across a road in a marked or unmarked crosswalk if traffic lights permit doing so. However, they must yield to traffic that was already in the crosswalk before the signal turned.
If a pedestrian was not crossing the road in a crosswalk, liability will be determined according to the concept of negligence. This means that a claimant must establish that the defendant had a duty of care to avoid endangering the pedestrian. Furthermore, it must be proven that the driver failed to uphold this duty, and that his or her negligence caused the accident that led to injury.
