Liability For Sacramento County Pedestrian Accidents 

Pedestrians are uniquely vulnerable in car accidents. They lack the protection of enclosed vehicles and are more likely to be overlooked. According to KCRA, Sacramento has seen a sharp increase in fatal pedestrian collisions in the last several years. The vast majority of pedestrian collisions involved some amount of human error. There are many factors that could potentially contribute to a pedestrian collision. 

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care to avoid hitting pedestrians. If a driver fails to slow down to avoid hitting a pedestrian, this could form the basis of a negligence claim.
