Crosswalks is known as the safest location for people to cross from one side to another. What would we all do without crosswalks? Unfortunately, however, crosswalks are often not as safe as we want them to be. In fact, a month does not pass by without us learning that an individual in Los Angeles or Santa Monica was hit by another vehicle while crossing a sidewalk. It is often not the cars that are perpendicular to the sidewalk, but negligent drivers that are either making a right or a left onto a pedestrian crossing the crosswalk. Additionally, accidents often occur at night where crosswalks are not well lit and negligent drivers are not cautious. One area of major problems is Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica where crosswalks are not lit at all, and it is often difficult to see pedestrians crossing a crosswalk.
Fortunately for these pedestrian victims of crosswalk accidents in Los Angeles, there are injury attorneys who are here to help and can recover damages from the negligent driver who caused the accident, or the city.
