Traveling by foot in a densely populated area such as New York City presents risks for all pedestrians. Reckless and inattentive driving by those operating cars, taxis and trucks presents dangers to even the most alert pedestrian observing traffic regulations. When a motor vehicle strikes a pedestrian crossing at a crosswalk or street corner, even at low speeds, the vehicle is likely to inflict serious, life-threatening injuries.
Negligent Driving Resulting In Serious Injuries to Pedestrians
Pedestrian accidents can take various forms, including:
- Failure to yield at a stop sign or stoplight
- Failure to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks
- Loss of vehicle control
- Speeding or the inability to stop
- Driving while drunk
- Driving while texting
- Driving while exhausted
