Pedestrians are injured in a variety of situations. Children playing in urban areas may create a duty for motorists to exercise reasonable care. When crossing the street in places other than in the crosswalk or at an intersection, the pedestrian may have to yield the right of way to oncoming cars. Illegally parked cars that create a visual obstruction for pedestrians may be a contributing factor in a pedestrian-automobile accident. The driver of a vehicle may bear a greater portion of responsibility for an accident because the consequences of driver fault present a greater potential for causing greater havoc.
Pedestrian -automobile accidents are very difficult to evaluate without the help of an experienced lawyer.
