Pedestrian Accidents Lawyers
Accidents involving moving vehicles and pedestrians are usually very serious. In some cases, the person’s injuries can be catastrophic. Consequently, a significant number of pedestrian accidents end up as fatalities and in many of those cases, the family of the victim is financially devastated as a result. For pedestrian accident victims living in Fort McMurray, Fort Saskatchewan, and Lacombe you can hire legal representation for your case at the BLAB Personal Injury Lawyer firm.
CAUSES OF PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
Pedestrian accidents are becoming increasingly more common as the population of our cities continue to experience growth. These accidents typically occur whenever the driver of a vehicle:
Disobeys traffic signals/signs
Disregards traffic and weather conditions
Doesn’t come to a full stop at a stop sign
Fails to stop at a red light prior to making a right turn at an intersection
Fails to yield to pedestrians
Is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs
Drives distracted (e.G. Texting while driving)
Is driving carelessly, negligently, or recklessly
Provincial Law states that all drivers must provide a certain “duty of care” when driving where pedestrians are present. However, that law also states that the pedestrian is responsible for being proactive about their own personal safety by being aware of their surroundings and staying alert.
