Pedestrian Accidents in Alabama
Although it is never a person’s goal to be involved in an accident, there are many instances where people are harmed in crashes due to the actions of others. According to the Alabama Department of Transportation, there are several factors that lead to crashes taking place in our state. These include:
- Speeding: This is the number one cause of crashes in Alabama as well as across the entire country.
- Failing to yield the right of way: This is one of the most common causes of non-fatal pedestrian accidents in Alabama every year. In fact, more than 23,000 collisions take place in our state due to motorists who fail to yield the right of way to others.
- Distractions: Nearly 11,000 people are harmed in crashes caused by people who are distracted while operating their vehicles in the state of Alabama.
Unfortunately, these acts of negligence harm countless pedestrians across our state. When victims are injured in pedestrian accidents, due to the negligent actions of other drivers, they are often able to pursue legal action against at-fault drivers.
