In the sometimes disastrous event of a motor vehicle hitting a pedestrian or bystander, the blame and liability often falls on the driver. Pedestrian accidents can involve intersection accidents, jaywalking accidents, crosswalk accidents, cyclists, joggers and exercisers being hit or injured while on the road side. Often, a pedestrian may step off a curb and into oncoming traffic and is struck by a vehicle. Even in this instance, the motorist may be held liable. Drivers have a duty to drive attentively and watch the road.
