Crosswalks Are Safe Zones
Many accidents occur in crosswalks, the one place where pedestrians should feel safe to cross the street. Our board-certified civil trial lawyers have seen the same scenario many times: In preparation to make a turn, a driver looks for cars but fails to look for foot traffic. He or she turns into a crosswalk and seriously injures or kills a pedestrian who is crossing with the walk signal. We are committed to holding drivers accountable for the harm caused by their negligence.
We Will Find a Way to Help
Not all pedestrian accident cases are clear-cut. Not all involve crosswalks. They may involve pedestrians being hit on the sidewalk by cars pulling out of driveways or parking lots. Regardless of the exact scenario, if you or a loved one was hit by a car, we encourage you to contact us. We will find a way to help. Our experience has taught us how to find options and opportunities even in the most challenging and complex pedestrian accident cases.
The advertising has already kicked into high gear, but new safety features designed to keep cars from hitting *pedestrians, may be creating a highway hazard!
A recent study by triple a shows the pedestrian -detection systems in four different car models didn’t perform as well as expected.
On the models tested, Chevy Malibu, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Tesla Model 3, the pedestrian detection systems were generally ineffective at 30 miles per hour …And completely ineffective at night!
AAA’s warning: While these systems have the potential to save lives, drivers should not rely too much on sensors and
Software to prevent accidents.
