Is it true that pedestrians always right?

Every road user has not only rights but also responsibilities. This applies to everyone: both car drivers and pedestrians. The pedestrians "have the right of way" and abuse this right very often, believing that drivers are automatically responsible in the event of an accident. In fact, both sides are at fault.

In any case, in the event of a road accident with injuries or death of a person, you should immediately seek help. Experienced lawyers always analyze cases taking into account all those involved in the accident.

Remember that a pedestrian must also obey the traffic rules, and he is liable for their violations.

There are many laws in New York, but the pedestrian part has a few basic rules. They are related to the behavior of people on the road, including:
  • Pedestrian crossings
  • Roads without sidewalks
  • Sidewalks and the sidewalk road
  • Regulated intersections
  • Unregulated intersections

The consequences can be severe if a pedestrian is injured in an accident. Therefore, agility and competent work at the scene of an accident are vital: interviewing witnesses, recordings from video cameras, and other evidence can help determine the degree of guilt of each participant in a road accident.
