The Attorneys at Pentlarge Law Group, LLC have successfully handled many pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, Anchorage is not the safest place to walk. Many streets have poorly designed sidewalks, or no sidewalks at all. In the winter it is even more dangerous to walk. Sometimes snow and ice cover the sidewalks and make pedestrian auto accidents even more likely.
Not everybody observes and obeys the rules of the road set forth by law. Pedestrians, car drivers, and bicyclists alike must abide by laws and use proper safety precautions to prevent injuries and harm. Oftentimes, it is the pedestrian that has the right-of-way. Here are a couple of the most common reasons for pedestrian accidents:
- Drivers are negligent
- Drivers are speeding
- Drivers are distracted by cell phones
- Drivers are drunk or reckless
