Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible For The Harm They Cause
One of the most common types of crossing accidents occurs when a motorist makes a right-hand turn at an intersection without looking for pedestrians who are crossing the street. Pedestrians, joggers and skateboarders have the right of way when crossing on a green light or within any marked crosswalk.
When a car collides with a person on foot, it is the pedestrian who suffers serious injuries.
