Pedestrian Safety Tips
Pedestrians should keep in mind that not all pedestrian accidents occur because of driver negligence. Pedestrians must be careful about following all applicable laws and not putting themselves in danger.
To help ensure his or her safety, a pedestrian should always:
- Walk only in crosswalks when crossing the road
- Look both ways before crossing a road
- Walk as far in on the sidewalk as possible
- Only cross the road on the “walk” symbol
Observing these safety measures, many of which are required by law, can help ensure that a pedestrian will have a safe walk. Unfortunately, some drivers may drive through a crosswalk when they are not supposed to or jump the curb, which may result in serious injury to innocent pedestrians.
The Clarksburg pedestrian accident attorneys of the Law Offices of David W. Frame believe that pedestrians who are the victims of reckless drivers deserve compensation for their injuries.
