Wrongful death accident with questionable liability.
Factors involved in pedestrian accidents:
- Speeding – the higher the speed, the higher the likelihood of a severe pedestrian injury.
- Elderly drivers – pedestrian injury rates are higher among older drivers, often because of age-related vision problems.
- Alcohol – imbibed either by the driver or the pedestrian.
- Low light conditions – more pedestrians are struck during the evening and other periods with lowered visibility.
Despite these and other factors involved in pedestrian accidents, many drivers will attempt to blame the accident on the pedestrian to avoid legal liability.
This lack of responsibility can seem particularly unjust to the pedestrian recovering from such serious injuries as:
- Severe head trauma
- Brain damage
- Leg injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck and back injuries
