Child Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Yuma


Pedestrian Accident Law

According to ARS 28-794, drivers are to exercise due caution when a child is in the roadway to avoid pedestrian accidents. This includes honking and slowing or stopping. According to ARS 28-792, drivers also must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in crosswalks if the pedestrian is on the half of the roadway on which the vehicle is traveling or is close enough to approaching that half of the roadway as to constitute a dangerous situation. However, the pedestrian must also avoid suddenly darting into traffic, making it impossible for drivers to yield.

Talk to Children About Pedestrian Crashes

We want parents to take time to talk to their children about correct ways to cross roadways. This includes discussing the safest path home, using less busy roadways with well-lit, designated crosswalks. Children should also wait for crossing guards whenever they are available. Finally, children must understand that cars should be at a stop before they attempt to cross. Teach your child to make eye contact with the driver and wait for a wave of the hand before they start to cross. Still, no matter what we teach our children, accidents still do happen even if the child was doing everything correct.

Contact a Yuma Child Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

An experienced Yuma injury lawyer can investigate this case and the scene of the accident to reconstruct what happened. Many times, accident reconstructionists are needed when the child was a pedestrian and was hit unless there are witnesses, as often the child is to blame for the accident even if they are not at fault. In some cases, the school district could be at fault for failing to have a crossing guard on duty as well, which a family should look into for a child's claim. The Husband and Wife Law Team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. would examine all facets of who was legally at fault for a child pedestrian accident.
