Streets At Night

Crossing the street at night may not seem like a big deal – “There are fewer cars,” you may think – but it can actually become risky (especially on Friday or Saturday night, when there’s a higher likelihood of encountering drunk drivers).

Over 5,000 pedestrians are killed in car accidents across the U.S. Every year, while other nearly 130,000 suffer injuries in traffic crashes.

can a pedestrian be at fault
Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault?
  • While we always tend to assume that only drivers can be held liable for car-pedestrian accidents, in reality it’s not uncommon for pedestrians to be at fault in such traffic collisions, car accident attorneys in Los Angeles say.
  • Fact: higher vehicle speed increases both the risk of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle and the severity of pedestrian injuries.
  • But what may truly surprise you is that pedestrians are often at fault in car-pedestrian accidents, which may significantly minimize or even deny their compensation benefits.
  • While people are more tempted to cross the street illegally (jaywalk) or cross outside of a crosswalk at night, it’s true that crossing the street at night increases the risk of both getting into a car-pedestrian accident and being fully or partially at fault for the car crash.

Pedestrian Can Blame For

The Los Angeles car accident attorney at JML Law outline four

scenarios in which a pedestrian can bear the blame for the car-

Pedestrian accident fully or partially.

  • Crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, and jaywalking
  • Crossing the street in the crosswalk but against a red traffic signal
  • Stepping onto the street or highway while overly-intoxicated
  • Walking along streets, highways or bridges where only cars are allowed to drive.
