Liability In Hayward Car Accidents

Thousands of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every year in car accidents. According to the CDC, “More than 7,000 pedestrians were killed on our nation’s roads in crashes involving a motor vehicle in 2020. That’s about one death every 75 minutes.1 One in six people who died in crashes in 2020 were pedestrians.” There are a number of steps that drivers should take in order to avoid hitting pedestrians.

  • All drivers should check their blind spots before making turns.
  • All drivers should slow down in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.
  • All drivers should scan the road ahead of them.

Every driver has a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. If a driver fails to yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk, this could form the basis of a negligence claim.
