Pedestrians and drunk driving accidents

There are many different considerations people should recognize with regard to drunk driving. For example, drunk driving can pose a threat to those riding in other vehicles, but it is also a major concern for bicyclists and pedestrians as well. When a pedestrian is struck by a drunk driver, their life may change at once and they could suffer a major injury. Worse, some lose their lives, which also leaves their loved ones with overwhelming emotional pain.

A pedestrian may be struck by a drunk driver while they are trying to cross the road, or they could be hit by an intoxicated driver who veered off of the road and onto the sidewalk. Moreover, some pedestrian accidents are caused by an intoxicated pedestrian who accidentally stumbled in front of a car, which highlights the dangers of alcohol and traffic in all circumstances.

When a pedestrian is struck by a car, a multitude of problems may arise. Not only do victims of pedestrian accidents frequently face physical pain or pass away, but many encounter additional problems stemming from the accident. For example, an injured pedestrian may not be able to keep working, which could cause them to go through financial problems. Or, someone might have a hard time paying medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident.

For pedestrians whose lives have been shattered by a drunk driver, or a driver who was exhibiting any other form of reckless behavior, standing up for their legal rights is essential. Our site's accident page has more material relevant to pedestrian accidents.
