Statistics show that the most common factors contributing to pedestrian accidents are:
- An inattentive or pre-occupied driver;
- A driver's failure to observe posted speed limits;
- A driver's failure to yield the right of way to pedestrians at marked cross walks;
- A driver negligently turning at an intersection;
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles may have a claim against the driver or owner of a vehicle, but they must prove that the driver's negligence caused the accident in order to recover for those damages.
