What should I do if I was in an accident caused by a pedestrian in Dallas?

When you think of a car accident involving a pedestrian, you probably picture a pedestrian being hit by a car when a driver wasn’t paying attention or was driving under the influence. However, pedestrians can also cause car accidents.

In Lewisville, two pedestrians were hit while trying to cross a busy street where there was no crosswalk. Police believe the pedestrians were drinking, and failed to yield the right-of-way to a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrians remained at the scene until police arrived, and no charges were filed against him. The pedestrians were flown by CareFlight to Parkland Hospital in Dallas and were in stable condition after the accident.

When pedestrians cause an accident they can be held liable for the accident just like a driver of a car could be held liable if the car’s driver caused the accident. Usually, if a pedestrian causes an accident and a vehicle hits a pedestrian, the vehicle will suffer minor damage and the pedestrian will get either moderately or severely injured. In some cases, however, a pedestrian could walk in a vehicle’s path, causing the vehicle to swerve or slam on brakes, which could result in a multi-car pileup.

If you are involved in an accident caused by a pedestrian in Dallas, you should contact a Dallas pedestrian accident attorney as quickly as possible. The pedestrian can be held legally responsible. Call the Dallas automobile accident attorneys at The Barber Law Firm.
