Pedestrian knockdown accidents are serious and can often cause severe injuries, including traumatic brain injury and broken bones. There exists responsibility on the part of a driver to exercise care and due caution when operating a vehicle around crosswalks or other places pedestrians are likely to visit; i.e. parking garages, jogging trails, etc. When a driver fails to adhere to pedestrian right-of-way laws, and a pedestrian is injured as a result, a driver can be held liable for damages sustained. That is why it is important to seek the legal counsel of a skilled attorney following a pedestrian knockdown accident.
