Dallas Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
What Are Pedestrian Accidents?
The answer is obvious: any collision where the driver of a car, truck, or motorcycle (or any other motor vehicle) hits someone walking on the sidewalk, on the curb, in a parking lot, or while crossing the street is a pedestrian accident. The number of fatal pedestrian accidents rises with the size of the population, but you can get hurt as a pedestrian anywhere. Due to the circumstances, pedestrian accidents can be just as dangerous as being on a motorcycle—if the driver of a car or truck hits you, you have no protection in the collision. You will get seriously injured or worse.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents happen because:
- Drivers don't pay attention. They may be texting while driving or talking on their mobile phones.
- Drivers can be careless. Pedestrian accidents sometimes come down to driver error - blowing through a stop sign or stop light and hitting people in a crosswalk.
- Speeding and drunk driving. These are two examples of preventable traffic offenses that often give rise to pedestrian accidents.
