Detroit Pedestrian Accidents Attorneys
Pedestrians enjoy many of the same rights as drivers, motorcyclists, and bicyclists. Certainly, pedestrians have a right to safety while obeying traffic laws and walking to and from destinations. In fact, pedestrians always have the right-of-way when they are dealing with others driving a vehicle or riding a bicycle.
However, despite pedestrian right-of-way, a number of pedestrians in Detroit are involved in accidents every year because of reckless drivers. Fortunately, the Detroit pedestrian accident attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C. can help victims better understand the legal options that may be available to them if this should occur.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can occur in a number of ways, but most of them are due to the reckless actions of drivers. In fact, many pedestrian accidents occur because a driver:
- Runs a red light / stop sign
- Fails to yield the right-of-way
- Fails to use mirrors / check blind spots
- Veers into bike lane / walking path
- Speeds through school zones / residential areas
- Speeds in parking lots
- Commits generally reckless behavior
All of the above actions can easily cause an innocent pedestrian in Detroit, like yourself, to be involved in an accident and injured as a result. But many victims also have possible legal options that might result in financial compensation.
