Duty of Care: Keeping Pedestrians Safe

Pedestrians are vulnerable to serious and fatal injuries, especially in accidents with motor vehicles. To protect those who traverse our roads and walkways on foot, California enforces many traffic laws with which motorists must abide. This includes requirements to:

  • Yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks and intersections.
  • Use due care and reduce speed when approaching pedestrians in crosswalks.

In addition to complying with vehicle regulations, drivers, property owners, and others who interact with pedestrians often owe them a duty of care. Drivers, for example, have a legal duty to exercise reasonable care to keep people around them safe from a preventable crash.

Unfortunately, not everyone obeys the law or upholds their duty of care. Some people cause accidents due to their negligence and wrongful acts. When this happens, injured pedestrians and their families have legal grounds for pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Do I Have a Case for My Pedestrian Accident?

You might. Determining if you can bring a claim against the at-fault party will require an attorney to review the specific facts of your case. The key in any injury claim is to prove that another’s negligence was the cause of your injuries. 

Examples of negligence that can give rise to a pedestrian accident lawsuit include:

  • A driver speeding, running a stop light/ sign, or failing to yield.
  • Drivers traveling in safety zones or areas marked for non-vehicle traffic.
  • A driver striking a pedestrian after passing a stopped school bus.
  • A driver clipping a pedestrian as they enter or exit a parked vehicle.
  • Drunk or distracted driving accidents.

In addition to negligent acts committed by drivers, the negligence of other parties may also lead to pedestrian accidents. In these cases, it becomes important to investigate what happened to determine who can be held at fault. Examples of pedestrian accidents caused by non-motorists may include:
