In many ways, the rules of the road seem to be changing, at least in common practice. Drivers generally have a duty to watch out for others. People walking or jogging near a roadway are at significant risk for injury if a driver is not paying attention while passing. Children playing near a school or in their own yards are frequently vulnerable to passing traffic. Crosswalk accidents are fairly common in Louisville, Jeffersonville and throughout southern Indiana. When a car or truck strikes a pedestrian, the injuries can be devastating. All too frequently, drivers believe that pedestrians should know better than to step into a crosswalk with a car approaching. However, even careful pedestrians can face traumatic and sometimes life-threatening consequences due to a distracted driver.
'I Didn't See You' And Other Excuses: We Do Not Buy Them
A dispute over visibility is one factor in pedestrian claims. Attempts to blame the victim for causing the accident sometimes occur in pedestrian accident cases. Insurance coverage issues are also complicated when a car strikes a person on foot.
