Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are a particularly vulnerable segment of traffic, which is why motorists must yield to people crossing the street or crossing the paths of automobiles. As with any other traffic accident, liability for pedestrian accidents is based on negligence. Although motorists do tend to take the blame for many accidents of this type, pedestrians can still be liable under a doctrine called “contributory negligence.” The articles below contain more information on this topic, as well as a wide variety of resources and articles on pedestrian accidents. There is information about pedestrian accidents on interstate highways, links to additional pedestrian accident resources, and more.
