Stevens Point Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
When pedestrians are forced to walk near the flow of traffic, accidents that involve vehicles and people may result in serious injuries or death. It is important for drivers to be aware of high-traffic areas and pedestrian crossings, and also need to obey traffic lights and stop signs. If a driver fails to observe people walking on crosswalks or sidewalks and collides with pedestrians, he or she may be held liable for any injuries caused by his or her actions.
If a pedestrian is struck by a car, truck, or other vehicle, the event can be traumatic for the victim and his or her family members.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents may be caused by:
- Poorly designed crosswalks
- Traffic light malfunction
- Crossing signal malfunction
- Reckless drivers
- Failure to observe pedestrians crossing streets or crosswalks
- Drunk drivers
- Excessive speed
People who are injured due to malfunctioning lights or signs may be able to hold city agencies accountable for their failure to properly program the traffic lights. They may also be able to pursue action if the crosswalk is in an unsafe location or is concealed from traffic. If a person is injured due to the carelessness of a driver, he or she may be able to pursue action against the responsible individual.
