With ever increasing volumes of traffic on our roads pedestrian safety is constantly a topic of debate.
Despite the provision of more safe crossing points accidents continue to occur.
Drivers are expected to be aware of pedestrian crossing points and depending on the type of crossing ensure they can anticipate the need to slow down or stop or in extreme cases carry out an emergency stop.
Drivers are given adequate warning on the approach to a crossing by zigzag lines.
With the exception of Zebra crossings, Toucan, Puffin, Pelican and Traffic Light crossings are push button operated and simple awareness of nearby pedestrians should be enough to ensure drivers approach those crossings safely.
- Driving too fast
- Failing to heed signed warnings of approaching crossing
- Lack of awareness of nearby pedestrians
- Tuning the radio on approach to the crossing
- Talking on a mobile phone
These are just a few examples of the common causes of Pedestrian Injury dealt with by Graham Coffey's specialist Pedestrian Injury Solicitors.
Pedestrian claims are often the subject of disputes by Drivers especially where there are no witnesses who can give evidence on whether the pedestrian simply walked out in front of the car.
Graham Coffey Specialist Pedestrian Solicitors are trained and experienced in assessing fault in pedestrian claims and where necessary obtaining traffic light sequence reports and witness statements.
