According to Peter Lazarus, an experienced attorney at the Pacific Attorney Group, most of the pedestrian accidents are caused by distracted drivers.
“A driver who is talking to a passenger or who is texting while driving or talking on the phone may not see a pedestrian until it is too late. Additional causes may include defective auto parts, such as faulty brakes that prevent a driver from stopping at an intersection to allow a pedestrian to cross the street,” says Lazarus.
