Pedestrians are a relatively vulnerable segment of traffic. Because of this, motorists must be able to yield to people crossing the street or crossing the paths of automobiles. For most pedestrian accidents, liability can be incurred by simple negligence. This is also the same for most traffic accidents. 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.” There are several articles which can surely be helpful in deriving information so as not to be involved in pedestrian accidents, or how to face it when you have already encountered it.
