When you're driving down the road in San Bernardino County and see a pedestrian about to cross the street, do you know what to do?
Over 100,000 pedestrians are hit by a vehicle every year. Some pedestrians sustain serious injuries such as head injuries, traumatic brain injuries or broken bones - while some are killed.
Rules of the road dictate that pedestrians have the right of way on sidewalks and crossing the streets, as long as they are following all laws regarding when and where they do so.
When you've been injured while walking on a sidewalk or crossing a street, don't hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney and learn whether or not you have a personal injury case.
