Car crashes and erratic pedestrian behavior

Motor vehicle wrecks take place for countless reasons, some of which are quite common (drunk driving accidents, fender benders, and so on), while others involve elements that are unusual. For example, a traffic accident which involves a pedestrian may take place because of the pedestrian’s erratic behavior. Whether you drive near pedestrians or you walk on the road yourself, it is crucial to be aware of this issue and do everything you can to avoid a pedestrian accident.

Some pedestrians may exhibit strange behavior for various reasons, whether they are suffering from a mental illness, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs or are suicidal. Unfortunately, some may walk in busy traffic at night and drivers may have a very hard time seeing them. For example, someone who is driving down the freeway late at night may not see a pedestrian in the middle of the road until it is too late. Moreover, erratic pedestrian behavior can cause a driver to collide with another vehicle as they try to avoid the pedestrian.

If you have been involved in a crash that was caused by a pedestrian’s behavior, it is important to handle the aftermath of the accident properly and recognize your legal rights. If you go to court because you collided with another vehicle because of a pedestrian, or struck a pedestrian who was acting erratically, it is vital to review all of the accident details. Moreover, if you were hit by a car while walking, you should also be aware of your legal options.
