Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable accident victims and have no protection from the force and impact of a crash. Pedestrian accidents occur for a variety of reasons, including failure to yield and failure to stop at crosswalks and marked crossing intersections. The cause of every pedestrian accident must be closely investigated in order to determine who should be held legally responsible.
