Legal Rights as a Pedestrian Accident Victim
Pedestrians have legal rights when it comes to accidents. Operators of motor vehicles must exercise reasonable care for the conditions on the road – that includes the presence of pedestrians.
Motor vehicle operators must allow pedestrians to lawfully use crosswalks. They must slow their speed in areas where pedestrians are present. When a driver causes an accident that injures a pedestrian, they are liable to pay the victim damages.
