Pedestrian Accidents at Night
When pedestrian accidents occur, it’s important to investigate as to what happened that caused the accident. Was the driver of the vehicle distracted by a phone or some other device? Was the pedestrian crossing lawfully at the time and place of the accident? Could the pedestrian be seen by the driver? All of these questions help piece together what happened in the accident, which can help determine issues like fault and responsibility, and will help establish who pays for the injuries incurred and who does not.
