Unfortunately, Augusta pedestrian accidents often involve seniors and/or children. While any pedestrian can be injured in an Augusta pedestrian accident, seniors and children are the most common victims.
Nationally, approximately 40 percent of those injured in pedestrian accidents are children under the age of 15. Children may lack the experience or mature judgment to avoid fatal errors that put them in the path of unsafe drivers. Numerous studies also indicate that children have less ability to estimate time and distance, making it more difficult for them to make accurate judgments about whether it’s safe to cross the street or not, even at dedicated intersections.
The elderly are also more likely to be injured in an Augusta pedestrian accident because of physical limitations related to age. This common physical limitation of the elderly is often neglected by public entities when designing intersections which do not necessarily include center islands or longer traffic signals.
Common Causes of Augusta Pedestrian Accidents
- Drivers under the influence of drugs and alcohol
- Accidents caused by fatigued and drowsy drivers
- Reckless driving practices like street racing and unsafe passing
- Failure to comply with traffic signals or exercise caution at intersections
- Speeding drivers unable to stop or avoid pedestrians
- Poor urban planning that fails to provide adequate crosswalks, traffic signals and other safeguards
While the majority of pedestrian accidents are caused by negligent or reckless drivers, Augusta pedestrian accidents may also be caused by poor roadway design or maintenance, defective motor vehicle components and poor vehicle maintenance. When negligence by a public entity is a contributing factor to a pedestrian accident, special procedures and time limits apply to pursue a claim against the governmental entity.
The experienced Augusta pedestrian accident lawyers at Montlick have a proven track record of pursuing pedestrian accident cases against not only careless or inattentive drivers but public entities.
