When most people think of car accidents, they generally do not think about individuals walking on foot. But a North Hollywood pedestrian accident lawyer will tell you that common accidents don't just involve two or more cars.

What Are Common Causes of North Hollywood Pedestrian Accidents?

Drivers have a duty of care while operating their vehicles that extend to more than just other cars. Drivers must also keep a lookout for the more unprotected individuals on the roads, such as motorcyclists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Here are the main causes:

If a driver does not pay close enough attention-- or their driving is impaired for any other reason-- they can seriously injure or kill a pedestrian accidentally.

In order to totally comprehend how serious pedestrian accidents are and how to prevent them, we also have to know what leads to pedestrian accidents.

Algunas de las principales causas de los accidentes que afectan a los peatones son:

  • Accidentes de giro y de incorporación
  • Salir de un aparcamiento o de un camino de entrada
  • No ceder el paso
  • Exceso de velocidad
  • DUI
  • Mal tiempo
  • Accidentes de camiones de reparto
  • Loading and unloading bus and rail passengers
  • Conducción distraída

¿Cómo puedo prevenir los accidentes de peatones?

Aunque es imposible tener en cuenta las acciones de quienes le rodean, hay varias cosas que puede hacer para evitar convertirse en víctima de un accidente de peatón.

Here are many safety measures to take to avoid getting struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian:

  • Cruzar la calle por los pasos de peatones designados
  • Observe los coches en todas las direcciones, incluidos los que giran a la izquierda o a la derecha.
  • En los cruces con semáforo, cruce sólo cuando tenga señal de paso
  • Al cruzar la calle, manténgase a la defensiva y asuma que el conductor no le ve.
  • Intente establecer contacto visual con el conductor para estar seguro de que le ve.
  • Never cross midblock, especially when walking on busy urban streets or roads with several lanes
  • Camine por las aceras siempre que sean accesibles
  • Remain alert at all times. Try to limit distractions on your phone
  • Sólo hay que utilizar un auricular a la vez para no perder todo el sentido de la audición
  • Do not attempt to beat traffic. If you feel like you need to run or accelerate, you are cutting it too close
  • Llevar ropa brillante y reflectante por la noche
  • Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways and parking garages or backing up in parking lots

What Should I Do If I'm Hurt in a North Hollywood Pedestrian Accident?

Knowing what to do after you are struck by a car while on foot is necessary to ensure that you can preserve your rights and legal options in case you are seriously hurt or have other damages.

  • Call the authorities and make a report
  • Anote la información de los testigos en el lugar de los hechos
  • Tome fotos y video de la escena del accidente
  • Reúne todas las pruebas posibles, incluyendo nombres, informes policiales, etc.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible
  • Llame a un abogado de accidentes de peatones
  • Don't speak with a car insurance company until you've had a meeting with an attorney

As increasingly more people turn to either public transportation or walking as an alternative to commuting by vehicle, more pedestrians end up on the public streets. This is especially true in urban areas like North Hollywood, where individuals frequently walk from bus stops, "L" stops, or rail stations to their homes or places of employment.

Too frequently, pedestrians are struck by drivers who are too distracted to see them crossing the street or walking behind a car. And when this occurs, it will be the pedestrian, not the driver, who pays the price.
