Lancaster Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Crosswalk Accident Lawyer Lancaster

Our lovely weather and beautiful streets make Lancaster a pedestrian’s dream. Some people walk for fresh air, exercise, because they are environmentally conscious, or simply because it’s convenient to walk and not worry about finding parking or paying meters. A beautiful walk outside, however, can take a turn for the worse if you’re involved in a pedestrian accident.

Pedestrians are especially vulnerable because they have less protection than almost anyone else on the road. Motor vehicles have a vehicle that surrounds them with airbags and seatbelts inside. Bicyclists and scooters riders wear (or should wear) helmets and possibly other safety gear, while pedestrians generally have nothing more than the clothes they are wearing to protect them in an accident.

Safe pedestrian practices

There are some safety measures that pedestrians can take to try to avoid being involved in an accident. See the following recommendations for pedestrian safety:

  • Avoid distracted walking. We know it is not safe for drivers to text or email while driving, but it is also not safe for pedestrians to navigate the sidewalks and cross the street while being distracted with mobile devices.
  • Use signaled intersections when possible. It may not always be possible to use signaled intersections, but if it only takes an extra block or two out of your way to use an intersection with a signal and crosswalk, it might be worth it.
  • Do not jaywalk. It is so tempting to cross in the middle of the street instead of walking to an intersection to cross, but jaywalking is dangerous and often leads to accidents. Intersections, especially when signaled and with crosswalks give drivers a heads up that pedestrians may be crossing their path, but they are much less likely to be on the lookout for pedestrians crossing in the middle of the street.
  • Wear bright and reflective clothing, especially if you tend to walk at dark or during those darker sunrise and sunset hours. And consider grabbing a flashlight or some other type of light to make your presence even more visible to drivers after dark.
