Oftentimes, beach cities and surrounding areas have many pedestrians. Due to the high volume of walkers in these areas, it is important that drivers keep their eyes focused on the road and watch for pedestrians at every corner and intersection. Unfortunately, with the busy life most people live day to day, many do not consider the safety of others not using vehicles as transportation. For this reason, pedestrian accidents have become a common in these types of areas.
If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident caused by a driver, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

How Do Pedestrian Accidents Occur?
Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents most commonly occur when a driver is not paying attention to the road or other people in the area. With this being said, distracted drivers often cause pedestrian accidents. Most pedestrian injuries are the result of negligent drivers who:
- enter crosswalks
- pass through intersections
- turn corners without looking for pedestrians
- fail to yield to pedestrians
For this reason, it is important to keep in mind that as long as you were crossing the street legally and gave the motorist enough time to yield the right-of-way, you have every right to file a claim for compensation.
