Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
New York City is one of the busiest cities in the country—if not
the world—and is prone to pedestrian accidents due to motorist negligence.
Whether it be at crosswalks, bus stops, intersections, parking lots, gas
stations, or any other point where vehicle traffic and pedestrian travel
must coincide, the simplest motorist mistake can result in serious injury.
Common examples of motorist negligence in pedestrian accidents include:
- Drunk or impaired driving
- Distracted driving (texting, phone, radio, etc.)
- Failure to obey traffic signs and signals
- Failure to obey crosswalk areas
- Failure to properly signal turns at intersections
