What are the common causes of pedestrian accidents?

Whether it is the summer or not, traveling by foot is fairly common is cities in New Jersey and elsewhere. It is not only cost and energy efficient, but walking is also beneficial for one's health. Despite the advantages and benefits walking can have, the reality is that pedestrians are faced with many risks and dangers. Because pedestrians often walk where vehicles travel, a collision between the two is possible. And when a motorist is not attentive, this could result in a serious and even fatal pedestrian crash.

What are the common causes of pedestrian accidents? For the most part, there are three reasons why a pedestrian accident may occur. The first is when a motorist owed a legal duty to a pedestrian and breached that duty, thus causing a collision. The next is when the owner of a sidewalk, road or parking lot failed to maintain it, resulting in a pedestrian tripping, slipping or falling. The final cause could be related to the conduct of the pedestrian. He or she could be texting while walking, crossing when it is not safe to do so or jaywalking. This could contribute or be the cause of the accident.
