Liability For Beaumont Car Accidents

Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to The Journalist’s Resource, “In all, fatalities of pedestrians and bicyclists make up nearly 15% of annual average highway fatalities. More than 90% of pedestrian fatalities occurred when the victims were hit by automobiles and light trucks.” Pedestrian accidents are more likely to occur in the early morning and late evening when visibility is reduced. There are a number of steps that drivers should take in order to avoid pedestrian collisions.

  • Drivers should constantly scan the road ahead of them.
  • Drivers should slow down during periods of reduced visibility.
  • Drivers should abstain from alcohol and other intoxicating substances.

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. Pursuant to California Vehicle Code 21950, the driver of any vehicle approaching a pedestrian in the roadway shall reduce their speed and take any action necessary to safeguard the safety of the pedestrian. If a driver fails to slow down and hits a pedestrian, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Victims of pedestrian accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including.

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones

When a driver is negligent and hits a pedestrian, they can be held at fault through a civil claim. The family of any person that is killed in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. It is common for drivers to deny liability for any accident when a pedestrian is killed along a freeway. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
