Were You Injured by a Vehicle While Walking?

Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents in California happen everyday. In fact, according to a 2017 report by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), pedestrian fatality rates increased by 11 percent.

In addition, one-fifth (21%) of total persons killed in traffic crashes were pedestrians. These statistics show a disturbing trend – that auto-pedestrian accidents are a growing concern.

What Are My Pedestrian Rights in California?

In general, pedestrians have the right-of-way in California. However, to promote both traffic safety and efficiency, there are certain abstract presuppositions that help avoid car accidents with pedestrians.

For example, according to safety rules from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (CDMV), pedestrians should yield their right of way when it helps prevent collisions. However, in most cases, pedestrians have right of way when walking through:

  • Crosswalks: Generally, a crosswalk is part of a road designated for pedestrian traffic. Almost every intersection has a crosswalk, even if there are no lines painted on the street. Since this is the case, if you were injured while walking through a crosswalk, even if it is unmarked, you might have grounds for a personal injury claim in California.
  • Intersections: When one roadway meets another, it is considered an intersection. These sections can include a side street, alley, freeway entrance or other location that vehicles travel through. Even if there is no “STOP” or “YIELD” sign at an intersection, pedestrians still have the right of way.
  • Roundabouts: If an intersection has traffic follow along a central island in a counterclockwise direction, that is called a roundabout. These types of intersections do not have bicycle lanes. As a result, there is confusion about the right of way at a roundabout. Motorists must yield to all traffic — including pedestrians — when entering or exiting a roundabout.
