Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Common causes of pedestrian accidents that are the result of someone else’s negligence include:
- A driver failing to yield the right of way
- A driver running a stop sign or traffic light
- A driver texting who doesn’t see a pedestrian in the crosswalk
- A driver who fails to use turning signals
- A driver speeding through an intersection or around a corner
These are just a few examples of the types of behavior that cause pedestrian accidents.

At Karns & Karns, we know how to build a personal injury claim that holds the responsible party accountable. We can help you get the justice and compensation you need to heal and recover.
Hear what others have said about us
Thank you so much for all the work everyone contributed to bringing my case to a successful conclusion. I am truly grateful to everyone.
I was traumatically injured on the job by a negligent forklift driver. I reached out to Karns & Karns when I began to suspect that my other attorneys didn’t have the expertise to resolve a complicated case where the defendant, a massive organization, said I was at fault. I’m certainly glad I did. Bill and Mike treated me with respect, knew the law, and did exactly what was necessary to make the defendant accept responsibility for their bad acts. I recovered $1,000,000.00, and I have Karns & Karns to thank for that.
